Filters to hide or highlight items – based on keywords and phrases
For example: I want to hide all items containing the word "pope". Now I just need to create a filter and all items with the word "pope" in headline and/or content will be hidden from my news stream. Same for highlighting certain words or phrases.
There are often subjects that multiple publications will write about and you see it repeatedly in your feed. Tag a subject such as "Trump" and hide or push the article with that tag to the bottom of the feed.
I suggest that Feedly add a profanity filter where the individual user could choose what words to filter out on his/her feeds. I have a profanity filter extension (Simple Profanity Filter -Google Chrome) that works on the particular websites (The Verge, Lifehacker - Kinja Roundup) that i subscribe to on Feedly, but not on feedly itself. Please allow profanity filtering on Feedly, as your individual users see fit. I deleted both Lifehacker and The Verge from my feeds. Not trying to tell anyone else what to allow or prohibit, just for myself. Thank you.
We need the ability to filter keywords so certain stories don't always crop up like Trump stories.
It would be super useful to be able mute a noisy topic.
Example: Once I've read an article about TrumpScript or Scarlett Johansson got a new "Kid" I don't want to read any more articles that are repeating the story.
So filter anything "trumpscript". maybe for the next 7 days.
I hate sports, and they litter my feedly, esp on weekends. Is there a way to filter sports out of all my feeds?
Hi. Can you add filter for each feed? For example, I subscribed on the source, which represents torrents tracker. I want to filter the articles in my feed by keyword "high quality" or some other.
Add option to filter articles based on text in title.
Some websites that I read with Feedly have multiple types of articles from multiple categories of the site, like CNN or geek.com. Not all of them have separate feeds for each category, so I suggest that you create an ability to apply filters to these feeds, to either allow or block certain feeds by keyword.
I'd like the ability to mute posts based on keywords (similar to how you can mute tweets in various twitter clients).
I get hundreds of articles every day and many of them I have no interest in reading. It is very tedious and time consuming to sort through all the junk to find articles of interest every day. Content Filters would greatly simplify reading and would work in two ways...
1) I can create a separate list of words for each feed category and all articles with those words would never show up in my feed.
2) I can create a list of important words and articles with those words would also show up in my Must Read list.
I was excited to see the new premium Feedly subscription option but was disappointed by the minimal features provided, so will not sign up. Content Filters, if done right, is something I would definitely pay a monthly fee to have.
I suggest you to support filter for every feed. In example: filter keywords "Bayern Munich" "Real Madrid" in a Transfer-News-Feed.
Only the feeds with the Keywords will be displayed.
I need a filter, sometimes i subscribe a feed from a website but i'm only comcerned with some specific items which contain specific key words.
I have lots of different feeds that gives me daily between 50 and 100 articles a day. That's because I need to see information from the various sources I've got. But the feeds themselves are unfortunately badly written and they give me ALL the news they have, including uninteresting topics.
I thought that maybe a filter can be added to mark automatically these things as read upon receiving, in that way slimming effectively the sheer amount of scrolling I have to make.
I think, it would be a great idea to include filters, so we can get rid of redundant or unwanted news, getting a cleaner and accurate feed
I'm following many RSS feeds but my span of interest change's. I'd like to be able to mute some feeds when i'm not interest over a certain period.
Enable keyword list to prevent items from being shown
e.g. if you want to all news containing a specific word. similar to spam filters in email accounts.
If you follow a ton of different feeds, you'll end up seeing the same news articles dozens of times as they're reposted by various sources. If you could detect posts that were a re-share of the same link, or the majority of content was the same, and merge these into one post, this would drastically cut down on the amount of time spent skipping over things you've already seen elsewhere. Show the content for most popular (or most relevant to the user, maybe) post, along with a list of links to duplicate/reshared posts at the end.
Before Google broke Reader's social functionality (see http://bit.ly/Yv3c2k), this was the one feature I felt they needed to be nearly perfect. If Feedly gets these two features, it'll be ready to take over the world.
I've always wanted a simple way to filter out certain content in feeds. For example, I'd love to be able to filter out videos because I'd rather use RSS for reading (could be accomplished by looking for media types within an article or through URL string searches). It would be nice to be able to subscribe to a source but filter out particular authors that bore me.
Yahoo Pipes offers feed processing tools but it's overly complicated and doesn't work very well. It would be great if Feedly could provide the capability in a way that's simple.
Add regular expressions way of hide feed headline/content based on regular expressions or even keywords/
Feedly: This is a high-value enhancement request; please consider it.
In the mean time, check out Feed Rinse: http://www.feedrinse.com/index-old.php
You give it your RSS URL, configure your filters, and they give you a replacement RSS URL to call that is ... rinsed! Use that rinsed URL in Feedly.
The only reason why I don't open Feedly anymore. All sources inject politics of a foreign state into their content which makes them unreadable. I have perfectly enough of local problems!!
Just a few keywords, it has solved even Twitter for me.

i wanna filter "trump"
Hahaha to the last comment.. surprised as well this isn't a thing :/
How many votes are needed before Feedly decides to implement?
Eric P. Alvaro commented
4 freaking years!!!
This is a popular request since the beginning, why has this such a low priority and gets delayed?
For the time being, I found a Userscript/Chrome extension.
Scroll down to the bottom of this page https://github.com/soufianesakhi/feedly-filtering-and-sorting and follow the links to the Chrome Extension or if you use Firefox, the Userscripts.
How is this still not a thing?

This very feature is the only reason why i use 3rd party rss reader over Feedly and gReader.
Won't advertise but yes, there are apps that does support filter-out articles based on keywords. To me this is absolutely essential feature.

Search is good (would be nice to be able to store searches in .. RSS feeds), but filter (IN and OUT!) would be excellent!
Andre Bovee-Begun commented
Yes, PLEASE. A simple switch to "mark as read" all posts to a feed or collection until further notice would be immensely helpful. A vacation scheduler even more so.
Johnathan Ward commented
This feature would come in handy. For example, I have to support public forums on a rotation. I added all the feeds to feedly so I can answer new questions. I'd like to be able to mute this collection until I am on call again.
why this is not a feature yet? it would be so easy to implement it!

I wanted to filter out some stuff from my feed and though to myself "this must the killer feature you get when you pay for Feedly". So, I went to pay for it, and couldn't find this feature listed! Kind of surprising as it is the only feature I would pay for above all the current paid features.
I have a bunch of feeds that I need to hide temporarily while I focus on other things, in order to reduce the amount of noise. Having to remove them would be such a loss and it did take me a while to find these feeds to begin with. Only being able to remove them is a bit like having to sell your house just because you're going on a 2w holiday.

That would be my "random" example too ;-) The inspiration for my 3 votes for this feature.
PLEASE - filter to hide headlines with (as a random example) the word 'Trump'
Phil Genera commented
desperately needed to avoid suicide by politics :'(
Adam J commented
I'm actively looking for a different service that does this. If it's being worked on or on the roadmap somewhere reasonable I would love to stay with Feedly because I'm very happy with it otherwise, but I really need this feature.
I've had Premium for 3 years now. I'm considering switching to a reader that can hide articles based on keywords, tags, or authors.

This feature is sorely needed.
