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.Nicolas commented
Wow this issue is aggravating. Feedly has two uses for me:
• see in a single place which webcomics have updated;
• let some of them pile up for later binging.
One thing I don't care one lick for:
• running a search through my feeds.
So Feedly can't manage my unread comics, and I had to do an internet search to even know about it. Also, now I have to search through comics archives to determine where I was at.
I'm gone as soon as I find a replacement.
