Over the years I have subscribed to a lot of feeds. Some of them I rarely read. So a lot of unread articles hang around and my tt-rss instance got slow.
Now I tried to cleanup but could not find a way to purge unread articles as it seems.
I have seen in the mysql logs that read articles are purged (i set the 365 days in the preferences page):
# Time: 171003 9:41:17 # User@Host: tt-rss[tt-rss] @ localhost  Id: 254554 # Query_time: 50.727194 Lock_time: 0.000106 Rows_sent: 0 Rows_examined: 7462 SET timestamp=1507016477; DELETE FROM ttrss_user_entries USING ttrss_user_entries, ttrss_entries WHERE ttrss_entries.id = ref_id AND marked = false AND feed_id = '280' AND unread = false AND ttrss_entries.date_updated < DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 365 DAY);
How about (sort of) unconditionally kick out old articles? (Yes I have read the posts about archiving, duplicates and starred articles - maybe not fully understood )
I want to avoid to walk through all feeds and mark articles as read just for getting them purged.
Thanks for any hints,
