            Bug ID: 392888
           Summary: Allow setting a "default status filter" in settings,
                    for when Quick Filter is hidden
           Product: akregator
           Version: 5.7.2
          Platform: Exherbo Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general

  Target Milestone: ---

Note: I'm on 5.7.3, but Bugzilla doesn't have that yet, so filing against

In Akregator, article status filtering and title filtering are both tied to the
"Quick Filter" bar. However, this forces a number of problematic trade-offs:

- If the filter is visible, various cases cause keyboard focus to move to the
filter input, resulting in shortcuts (such as "d" for "mark read") instead
causing the filter to kick in
- If the filter is not visible, the article status filter is reset (this
behavior was introduced somewhere within the past year, and while it makes
sense from a "invisible settings are liable to confuse the user", it also makes
my use case impossible)

The vast majority of the time, I want:
- To only see unread articles
- To not have the filter bar visible or a valid target for keyboard focus

Occasionally, I want:
- To see all articles, or
- To filter articles, or
- Both

If there was an item in settings, that set the "default status filter"
(all/unread/new) for when the Quick Filter bar was hidden (and thus would also
set that dropdown appropriately on reset), this would make Akregator much
easier for me to use with my workflow (which the reset-on-hide behavior

(For a while, I worked around the reset-on-hide behavior by manually setting
the appropriate fields in akregatorrc, but it's just recently stopped accepting
status filters being set while the Quick Filter bar is hidden.)
