How to add a source?

There are two ways to add sources to your Feedly.
1. Using the Discover page (desktop and mobile)
Type in any blog/site/topic name in the search box on the top of the discover page (look for the plus button on the left that will open the discover page). From there you can search for any topic, keyword, blog name, or URL. Once you have found your source, simply tap the "Follow" button, or open the feed and tap the "Follow" button next to the source name. At this point, you will be able to pick which feed to add your source to.
You can also directly paste the RSS URL into the discover page and follow the website/blog directly.
2. Using Feedly Mini (desktop)
Feedly Mini is a Chrome and Firefox extension. It automatically detects the RSS feed of the site/blog you are browsing to open and gives you the option to open it in Feedly, and add it to your feeds. Note that you can also save articles to your Boards with Feedly Mini.
When you can't find the source directly:
Search for the site’s name (as opposed to the URL)
- If you search for a site’s URL (e.g. http://www.interviewmagazine.com/) we might return: “No feeds found”
- Try to remove http:// and .com and simply search for the website’s name (e.g. interviewmagazine)
- We should be able to find the site’s feed or even all the feeds the site has if there are multiple ones
Here are 3 ways to find and add the feed:
If the previous methods didn’t work, then you will have to find the site’s feed.
- You can look for the RSS button on the site’s page. Copy and paste this .xml URL in Feedly discover page (see above).
- Pro tip: try adding /feed, /feeds or /rss at the end of the site’s URL. That will either return a 404 page (fail) or the feed itself (success!). Once you have found the feed’s URL add it to the discover page (see above)
- Open the source of the website and search for ".rss" or ".xml" or ".atom" in the source, sometimes the source is there and you can copy and paste it to Feedly.
If none of these methods work, please don’t hesitate to contact us back with the feed’s URL and we can try to find the feeds you are missing together. We can also ask the publisher to add the RSS feed or let us know what their RSS feed is - you can ask them too :)
Other options to consider if you can't find RSS feed for the site:
- You can add their Twitter account to your Feedly by pasting the URL of their Twitter page into the Twitter Feeds tab of your Add Content section, you can read more about the Twitter feed feature here: https://blog.feedly.com/twitter-feeds/
- You can also follow Newsletters in Feedly: https://blog.feedly.com/get-newsletters-in-feedly/
- We have customers that create RSS feeds from non-RSS sites by using external tools like https://fetchrss.com/ or www.rss.app Once you get an RSS link, you can implement it directly into your feeds by going to Add Content and pasting it in the websites tab (we're working on page2RSS feature to allow this within Feedly)
