This has been "Planned" for two years now. Still no sign of it being delivered.
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.
Sad, but true. They only had the unlimited unread items for the first couple of months. They have had the 30 limit in effect for literally years now.
I too would buy a subscription if they took the limit off, even if it was only for premium members. However their continued silence on the issue suggests that they don't care and it isn't worth our money for them.
So, does anyone know of any alternatives that DO allow unlimited unread items?
This is absolutely the only reason that I am *not* a paid subscriber. If they made it unlimited, even if it was only unlimited for premium users, I would pay in a heartbeat.
Hey guys, this suggestion is almost up to the top of the second page! If we can push it to the front page then we are more likely to get a response. So if anyone has more votes that you can add to this, let's switch over as many as we can to help push us the rest of the way up!
I would also upgrade to Pro if this cap was removed entirely and guaranteed to be kept away forever. I would probably switch to a lifetime account even.TheMog supported this idea ·
