Let me edit the feed URL via 'organize'
I can't find a way to edit a feed's URL.
Andy Borne commented
This is a basic, mandatory feature for RSS. I have a feed that was added as http even though the site (now?) supports https, so the feed contents are showing up corrupted by injection attacks from my ISP. Deleting and re-adding a feed means losing all of the starred articles. This needs to be fixed.
To discover a feed's original URL, find the feed in https://feedly.com/i/organize, click on the feed's title to bring up the feed's overlay. Click on the feed's title in that overlay, and it'll take you to a feedly.com/i/subscription/feed URL with the feed's URL URL-encoded in it, like this: https://feedly.com/i/subscription/feed%2Fhttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.jwz.org%2Fblog%2Ffeed%2F, then you can URL decode the feed's URL with any old online URL decoder. The one above would be: http://www.jwz.org/blog/feed/ . Even so, I can't vote for this request hard enough. Feedly, PLEASE let us just see and edit the feed URL directly.
The link is even in the html document. It's makes no sense to simply show it under https://feedly.com/i/organize.
We should leave Feedly which doesn't provide editing source, a basic service for users!
That you can't edit or, at least, view the URL for a feed is ridiculous -- so much so that I'm seriously considering cancelling my Pro subscription.
Is it simply possible to see the URL of the feed?
Why can't we edit feed?
Feeds title data-feedid property has been removed,
I can't find any about feed original url now.
I can hardly believe it. This suggestion was started in 2013 and it is still not implemented.
Viewing and editing feed URLs should part of Feedly's basic feature set from day one.
This is needed and wanted.

My main use case is because if you give Feedly a URL, it likes to find the feed on its own based on that URL. But some cases, for example some blogs that allow you to put tags in the URL to filter the feed, feedly strips those out because it finds a main feed URL on the site threw some other means. (Meta tags to a canonical root site feed, etc.)
- Instead, I either want to edit the feed URL in Feedly after I create the feed, so I can put those filter tags back in the URL of the feed,
- Or just stop modifying the URL supplied to the Add Feed process in the first place. I understand why sometimes replacing it with a better known good URL is appropriate in some cases; but when you give it an explicit full URL with a valid feed, even if it isn't the main/popular feed URL for that domain, it should not force it to be reset on you.

This should be fixed

To say lack of this feature is frustrating is an understatement. To see it has been requested so many times and not addressed is a real shame.
I was expecting a text box to edit the URL right next to (below) the edit field for the name of the feed.

This has to be a joke, I thought I was overlooking something when I wasn't able to find where to change a URL.
seriously. please. fix this.
Just now, I was trying to figure out which feed url I was using for Basic Instructions, because the author mentioned that in the future, different versions might contain different content. There is no obvious way to do this. (It sounds like page element inspection and export are the only ways, which is silly.) And editing it is even worse!

Workaround: (tested with chrome)
1. Click on the link feed with right mouse button.
2. select "inspect element"
3. feed is in the "data-feedid" property
SOLUTION (for some)
If you are using an iOS device, download Newsify. Like Reeder it lets you add your Feedly account. With it you can FULLY edit your feeds (move/rename... title, URL, tags). Congratulations to them for being the only post-Google Reader service to offer full RSS feeds edibility (that I've tried).
Even my man Silvio who makes beloved Reeder, who has quickly replied to my emails on other issues twice, says this isn't a high priority feature for him.
For me, this is about as frustrating as the time when iPhones didn't have any copy and paste functionality.

- Go to the "Organize" page (one of the links at the bottom of the sidebar)
- Click "Save as OPML"
- Open the downloaded XML file
- Look for your URL there
- If you want to update, delete the header and all the "outline" entries except the ones you want to update.
- Edit those entries
- Import the new OPML file using the link at the top of the "Organize" page.

So, it's now 2015 and this is still not resolved?
