Using latest version of Reader plugin and WordPress 4.1. On almost every Reader screen the Following count almost is always zero. http://cl.ly/image/0s2q0F263y11
When I click on Following it does however say I am following 5 site and then lists them. http://cl.ly/image/1d0x2I3Q2F0e . This is displayed as well as when I click "Following" to view the feed of Sites as follow.
From debugging the PHP code, when not on the follow screen the value of $this->user in the WMD_MSReader_Modules class is null in the get_followed_sites method.
