OPML import does not import uncategorized feeds

Tomáš Jacík 5 years ago • updated by Elle Sidell (Community Manager ) 5 years ago 0
Hi Tomas, 

Sorry for the inconvenience! Your uncategorized feeds should be importing as well, so I'm sending a report to the developers this morning. If it's not too much trouble, could I also ask you to send me a copy of your OPML subscriptions? My email is: elle@wikidi.com 

Thanks! ~Elle

Hi Royston, 

Sorry for the inconvenience. I have forwarded this issue to the developers and will speak with them this morning. I'll update you as soon as I know more. Thanks for your patience! 

UPDATE: Sign-in menu has been fixed - we apologize for the delay! We had some other pressing performance issues to deal with, but it has been fixed. Please let me know if you run into any trouble. Again, sorry for any inconvenience and thank you so much for your understanding. We really appreciate it! 


All news in one timeline from all sources

Martin Štekl 5 years ago • updated 5 years ago 5
It would be nice to have some view to see all news from all sources in one timeline. I like merging of Facebook and RSS timelines but I have to use separate panel for Twitter. It would be more useful if you will add some other service, Google+ for example.
Thanks for the great ideas, Martin! I'm definitely going to share them with the rest of the team and see what they think!

We'd love to add more services, especially Google+, but unfortunately their API is very limited at the moment. As soon as it changes, we hope to be able to offer this option in FlowReader.

Do you mind me asking if you find it confusing to have Twitter in a separate panel on the same screen? 

Also, in regards to merging all news together in one place from all the sources - do you mean removing stories that have nothing to do with content items? i.e. Posts from your friends about their social activities.

Merging of news from many sources

Martin Štekl 5 years ago • updated 5 years ago 4
Let's say I follow some account on Twitter and also on Facebook. Sometimes they differ but many posts are the same. The same article can be published on Facebook account and I can see it in RSS too.

I would like see only one entry in timeline with some possibility to show all variations. It would be useful within my other posted idea about one timeline for all news.
Thanks again for sharing your ideas! I'd like to ask you a couple more questions if you don't mind :). 

Do you mean that the news item would only be shown once with a note about other places it's been shared?

Or, would the item be shown on Facebook, Twitter, and RSS with the different source variations? 

I'm looking forward to hearing more! 

Can not add feeds individually?

Luiz Claudio Lins 5 years ago • updated by Elle Sidell (Community Manager ) 5 years ago 0

Hi Luiz! 

You can add single feeds through in your Settings page: 

1) Paste your RSS URL in the "Add subscription" box 

2) Select a category 

3) Click Add 

This is the only way to add single feeds currently. However, we are working on a faster way to add new content to your reader, which should be available very soon. 




Lost rss feed

Rafał Puka 3 years ago • updated by Diana Bocco 3 years ago 5

For some time rss feed natemat.pl missing. Flowreader displays the entries from the RSS feed, but does not show it on the list of feeds. Can you see the attached picture:

Link to the feeds: http://natemat.pl/rss/wszystkie

Thanks so much for you suggestion - that's a great idea!

At the moment, the spacebar is used to scroll down the page.

You can go to the next item using the keyboard shortcut J. To get started, just click on the item you'd like to start with and press J and you can view the next item. If you'd like to go back to the last item you viewed, use K.

These shortcuts work everywhere in FlowReader, not just the Reader tab.

Do these shortcuts work sufficiently for what you had in mind? And are there any other shortcuts that you'd like to see us add? I'm still definitely going to bring your request up with the team for discussion.


Hi Vickie, 

Let me start by apologizing for the problems, and I completely understand your frustration! We are currently experiencing an internal bug that is causing feeds to duplicate and push to the wrong accounts. So, the problem you are experiencing is most likely connected to this issue. Our developers have been working on this problem all morning and we hope to have it fixed soon. We realize the seriousness of the issue and have made it our number one priority! Thank you for your message and I apologize again. We appreciate your patience and understanding! 

UPDATE: This problem should be fixed now. Please contact me at elle@wikidi.com if you're still experiencing problems. Thanks again for your patience!


Keyboard shortcuts?

Lonnie Cherryholmes 6 years ago • updated by Elle Sidell (Community Manager ) 6 years ago 0

Where are the keyboard shortcuts?  Does it have any?  Need them with all the feeds.  Please


Hi Lonnie, Thanks for the question. We are expecting to have basic keyboard shortcuts ready some time this week! 

UPDATE: Keyboard shortcuts are now there. However, the function is currently backwards. We will be fixing it today! 


How to see in the reader which account I used for login ?

Frantisek Polach 5 years ago • updated by Elle Sidell (Community Manager ) 5 years ago 2
This would help me to choose the right account to login into the mobile version.
Hi Frantisek, 

Hopefully I can help you figure this out! Whichever account you chose to log in with should be automatically connected to FlowReader. 

You can visit your Settings page in order to see what account has been connected. You can also connect additional accounts in the same page, and also import your OPML file here. 

To access your Settings page you can: 

  • Click your account tab in the top-right corner and select Settings
  • Click Add content in the left column. 

Here's a screenshot of the Settings page: 

I hope this helps answer your question. Let me know if this wasn't what you were looking for and I'll do my best to help you figure it out. 

Thanks so much for your patience! I really appreciate it.
