Custom Sharing

Setting up Custom Sharing

Custom Sharing is an advanced feature of feedly Pro that allows you to create a custom instruction in feedly to share to a service that feedly does not yet support natively. This can be useful for things like, automatically creating a short link in Bit.ly or opening a page in Google Translate. This feature is advanced and requires knowledge of the URL architecture of the service you intend to share to.


Creating a Custom Sharing instruction:

  1. Go to the feedly Preferences page on the web
  2. Find the section called 'Custom Sharing'
  3. In the box, enter a URL path; feedly will open a popup to this URL when you click on the Custom Sharing icon
  4. You can use the following parameters for the Custom Sharing URL: ${url}, ${source}, ${title} and ${id} 
Sharing an article using Custom Sharing:
  1. Navigate to any article using feedly on the web
  2. Open any article and click the Custom Sharing button (  - the button is located at the top of the article)
  3. Feedly will open a popup using your Custom Sharing URL
  4. Follow any relevant onscreen instructions to complete the share
