Dear testers,
in case you want to inform me about not working feeds, please include the following information into your post:
  • Does the feed not showing any text or descriptions?
  • Does the feed not showing images?
  • Does the feed working when the option "Show images is active/inactive?
Please provide the URL here, otherwise I do not have the chance to debug efficiently.

Thanks and regards,
Micropolis

    Hi micropolis,
    thank you very much for this. As I am kind of addicted to reading news feeds I am excited to try your plugin. I was hoping to see some additional functionality though and would like to ask you if it might be possible to add it. Since I get my news on several devices I use feedly as a central service for my feeds. So what I've read or saved is synced and kept in one place. Have you thought about providing support for services like this one? Would be great!

    Dear community,
    please find a new release candidate version on the first post of this thread. Please report any issues or bugs to publish a stable version in the next few weeks.

    @catavolt: Could you please be so kind to create/publish appropriate DefaultWide skin files?
    @Luca Brasi: I'll try to integrate Feedly support into a next version. Hopefully a API is in place and feasible to integrate it into the current plugin architecture.

    Cheers, Micropolis

    I think both services deliver the same features. I've been using feedly since google reader died and never had a problem (also with greader pro). As it is quiet easy to switch from one service to the other via opml I'd say Micropolis might wanna have a look which api he likes more...
