I suggest you ...

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.

        negative filters (excluding stories with a specific term) are nice. But I'd LOVE positive filters: highlighting stories that include a specific terms or phrases, perhaps as a board, or as part of the must read section.

        When you asked if I'd use this filter, I quickly said no. But after thinking about it, I'm pretty sure I would. Thanks!

        I just signed up to pro because the pro list of features said it included filters. Now I find it doesn't include any proper filters. Not very happy about this!

        So true. This would be the best feature ever. I really, really need to filter out all the dumb articles about "Trump".

        I chose not to renew my Pro membership almost entirely because this feature is lacking.

      • JordanJordan commented  · 

        As a pro user, I'm actually becoming quite frustrated about the lack of this as a feature.

        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"

      • KirkKirk commented  · 

        Hahaha to the last comment.. surprised as well this isn't a thing :/

        How many votes are needed before Feedly decides to implement?

      • DFBMDFBM commented  · 

        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?

      • Robin ZlatićRobin Zlatić commented  · 

        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-BegunAndre 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 WardJohnathan 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.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        why this is not a feature yet? it would be so easy to implement it!

      • Andy ShinnAndy Shinn commented  · 

        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.
