Feedly and RSS Subscription Extension

If you use the RSS Subscription Extension for Chrome and want Feedly support, here's how. As some may know, this extension adds a feed icon to any page that offers up RSS feeds. This allows you to easily click to subscribe.

When you click on the icon, there is a drop-down list of available news readers. Right now, only a couple are listed, after the announced death of Google Reader. You can, however, add a new one. To do this, you'll simply need the URL that is used to add feeds to the reader. Chrome inserts the RSS feed URL via a variable replacement (%s). If you don't see this list, you may have selected a default reader, and can access the list via the Options for this extension.

The URL you need is:[action.subscribe

Just paste it in when you click 'Add', and name the reader whatever (e.g. feedly). From that point forward, you have easy access to RSS feeds.


  1. Doesn't seem to work for me when trying to subscribe to Blogger RSS/Atom feeds using the RSS Subscription extension for Chrome.

    1. You're right. It does work with other sites, I've used it many times at a wide array of places. But, blogger sites do indeed malfunction. I will look into it if I get the impetus and time.
