The ability to clean up or avoid add duplicate feeds.
Hello, we have deduplication running via Leo in Feedly Teams subscription right now. We’ll be also adding Feedly Pro+ edition soon where deduplication should be available as well, more here: https://blog.feedly.com/leo/
There is a feedreader that already does this, took me a while to figure out how to setup my feeds. You can import OPML but then you have to make some adjustments manually, activate the grouping feature and set the language. English, German and French is supported. --> nooshub.com

This is very easy to accomplish with PHP/MySQL (and undoubtedly other programming environments), so I am mystified by how this long-overdue feature still hasn't been released. Feed duplication is especially common in science sites, which generally just repost content (often but not always verbatim) from press releases from original sources. Occasionally, their editors will tweak the title, so that alone is not sufficient to give ideal differentiation. I hope that Feedly's programmers realize how to best solve this problem. If they are up for a challenge, see if they can create a better duplicate-removing filter than mine.
Parenthetically, what amazes me in regard to this issue is the profusion of RSS aggregators engineered by programmers seemingly oblivious to this duplication issue, as if they don't fully grasp how users often subscribe to multiple similar feeds plagued by this problem. Therefore, IMHO, de-duplication should be designed in from the get-go.
Similarly, of all the many RSS aggregators I've seen, none included some of the advanced features I am developing to fill voids in utilization of the full potential of RSS. I get the feeling that most RSS programmers are overly complacent in that they are too easily satisfied by delivering basic functionality, and don't spend enough time pondering how to fully develop RSS. Because that wasn't done, it helps explain why RSS never took off as it should have, with it being one of the primary backbones of the Web instead of something more esoteric that appeals to only a small minority of users.
Any update on this?
Mute filter is nice however in noway shape of form a way to remove duplicates (need something to check the actual content regardless of the source and just only show the first one...)
The mute filter referenced below does not in any way accomplish this. For longtime Feedly users this is a real issue. What can be done?
Could you please atleast remove 2 posts that have the same titles?
I have write a userscript to filter the duplicate items - Feedly Duplicate Filter 2014
Work on Firefox and Chrome with tempermonkey.
This is chinese blog post, or you can download the userscript directly
+ 1 to this. Some blogs re-post an article written elsewhere and it would be nice if Feedly had the ability to recognize the same post from two different sources.
I have just changed de title of my site and feedly (my RSS site) don't recognice my new title. Only appears the original title for new subscribers.
If I write my domain in the add content button, then the two titles appear, I just want the new title appears. ¿Is it possible?
I definitely second this. This would be helpful!
I thought it used to tell me if I was already subscribed to a feed when I tried to add it again (maybe this was reader) but now it turns out I have the same feeds added 2 or 3 times. Please fix!
@Michael: Some sources just update previous released message (change word or add new paragraph to released article) and this is displayed as a new feed, but it isn't. I would appreciate to see only latest one.

@Michael I'd disagree, this is a request for a feature to identify multiple instances of the same feed, the one you link to is requesting an automatic merge of different feeds that display the same article.

This is a duplicate (sic) feature request. This version of the request has most votes: http://feedly.uservoice.com/forums/192636-suggestions/suggestions/3747506-merge-duplicate-posts-from-across-feeds-into-a-sin
