Count me in the group that can’t get their hands around this updated news aggregator. I can’t stand it. Any company that wants to tell me what I should be interested in can go fuck themselves. 75% of my custom news searches disappeared and are no longer available.
You were probably grandfathered in. If you try creating a new account, you’ll see they now have a hard limit and attempts at adding any more prompt you to upgrade to pro - at an annual rate! I can’t even try it for a month.
Not sure I understand why they’d grandfather in free users. It’s one thing to move someone from a lower fee to a higher one, or a one-off payment to a subscription, but what have they got to lose by cutting off the freeloaders?
Is this the source of your confusion - sources vs feeds?
Still, Feedly has plenty to offer casual users. It has a clean user interface, and the free version of its service lets you follow 100 sources, categorized into up to three feeds—think News, Sports, Humor, or wherever your interests lie.
That seems more likely. It does seem like I’m now capped at the current number of feeds, ie folders, I have. You may have luck organising your feeds in another reader and then importing into Feedly. Worth trying, anyway. Worst that can happen is that it ignores your folders.
Edit: Actually, no, I can still add a “feed” (folder) when I add a new RSS feed.
