We’d like to share with you how Search works and why the limitation is set on 30 days.
Basically the reason why we have to limit to 30 days for categories is because searching across a large number of feeds takes a long time to return results right now. This also explains why we can remove this limit when you search directly in a feed rather than a category, as that will return search results a lot faster.
You can still see all the older articles as unread in all your Collections/Categories. If you’ll click on the Gear icon on the top right and uncheck “Unread only” you’ll see all the articles, just marked as read.
Improving our search feature is one of our top priorities for feedly Pro, so we’re trying to up this limit soon. Unfortunately we don’t have an ETA to give you on that.ingvald commented
for me, this is not related to search, but as another said here, auto-marking my items as read when they reach 30 days. for me, this has led me to start using digg's reader more and more, which doesn't have that limit.

i've looked at a lot of competing tools and have not found this apart from the old google reader... this would really make feedly stand out among power users (curators of info)...
Sharing is an important aspect of the reading experience in feedly.
We are currently designing a new sharing experience to allow you to better share content from your feedly.
ETA Spring 2014.
