Search in read and saved articles (free)
I use Google Reader for food blogs and I want to be able to search back in previous posts - starred/saved or not to find what I am looking for.
I should be able to use feedly's Search tool for free.
Hello, having some features in a Pro version is a way for free users to contribute to the Feedly project.
Being funded by our community means that you are the customer and we do not need to focus on trying to create a toxic feed where we are trying to mine your attention.
You guys suck!
You are not the only one. This is how Feedly creators encourage you to pay for basic features available in other products for free.

At the moment the free search is unusable for me. When I do a search I only get the #searchPromo popup ("Unlock power search and quickly find the most relevant [keyword] stories in your feedly") and I have to remove it by modifying the html of the page (F12) to see the results. No closing button is available. Am I the only one?
The Pro Search is OK, but there is no way to only show unread articles. That's a pain, because this means I'll have to scroll past say a hundred read articles before I see any older unread articles that match the search term. Please fix! (Should this be a new request?)
> Indexes your entire feed history
Entire history? This is significant overstretch, I would say. "Entire history" has
the length of one month.
Everyone knows Feedly is not capable of keeping items for more than a month.
Cool, you tried but failed at replacing g reader by asking for money from users for removing full access to a 3 party search function. You killed reading articles via rss for many people.

Feedly Pasal Search adalah fitur premium? Siapa yang membuat keputusan itu? Feedly benar-benar mencari setiap cara yang mungkin untuk membuat pendapatan. Saya tidak akan membayar untuk Feedly hanya untuk mendapatkan sesuatu yang biasanya gratis di setiap feed reader lain di luar sana.
I haven't paid for the upgrade to Feedly Pro, but I don't begrudge them their attempt to make money. I don't think that search *must* be a free feature. I also don't think I'll pay $45 a year for it. Looking over their other "pro" features, I think that by far the biggest incentive to upgrade is search capability. If they reduce their price, I would definitely be tempted - but I really don't know how many people there are like me out there. I think that some people see making search a paid feature is user-unfriendly, and I get that, but Feedly is treading some new ground here with Google out of the RSS field, and my take is that I'm willing to cut them a little slack while they try to work out a feasible business model. I may not pay $45 a year at this point for what Pro offers, but I'm not writing them off, either.

This is outrageous! Arthur (co-founder and designer of feedly), you said "Enabling searching within your feedly is a very difficult thing to do. But we definitely understand the value of such a feature so we will be working hard on that one to make sure we can add it to feedly" on JUn 3!
Then, when this feature is ready ...OH OH, I'M SORRY BUT THIS IS ONLY HAPPENING WITH FEEDLY PRO!! Article Search in Feedly should NOT be a Premium Paid feature!!!! Shame on you, feedly!

Feedly Article Search is a premium feature? Who made that decision? Feedly is really looking for every possible way to make revenue. I will not pay for Feedly just to obtain something that normally free in every other feed reader out there.

Search is a pro feature? Time to find a new reader.

Note: This seems to be similar to the more popular suggestion, http://feedly.uservoice.com/forums/192636-suggestions/suggestions/3744380-search-within-my-feedly , If they were combined, then the total vote would be 17,119 + 604 = 17,723, increasing its popularity.
I agree !
INOREADER IS FANTASTIC !!!
Completely agree !!
i absolutely agree...

Search should definitely be a free feature. I can understand the others being PRO features, but Search is an essential function. Very disappointed in how Feedly is handling the transition from Google Reader.
I'm not the kind of person that thinks that everything should be free but I didn't like the fact that the didn't say that search was gonna be a "pro" feature but that "they were working" at it... and then i found out about 35$ bucks a year, after I've waited for months.
I think they should have beem honest about it from the start... switching to the old reader...
ps: the app sucks...

I agree, the search was a free feature when I moved everything over and got used to how feedly was set up. Bait and switch BS makes me want to go elsewhere, no matter how pretty feedly is.
