To add an RSS feed as a content source, you need to copy/paste the URL of the feed in the search bar (in "sources"). If the RSS feed is valid, the source will show up in the sources results and can now be added.
If the feed is not valid, you will get an empty error message. Please note: A space in front of the search input will cause a search fail.
Helpful hint: When you enter your RSS URL it should begin with http://....
Please note: We only pick up new articles posted the past 24 hours or 7 days (depending on whether your paper is updated daily or weekly). Please check that your RSS source has fresh content for these time frames.
You can add up to 25 RSS feeds for each Paper.li (the maximum number of sources). The feeds can be filtered for keywords and prioritized (if you place RSS in the number 1 spot, your RSS will feed your headlines and featured articles. If there is no RSS for that day, we will move to your second priority)
Currently we support the following content-types for RSS feeds:
For Facebook and Twitter RSS feeds: Our system currently does not process these feeds. We apologize for the inconvenience!
Just as with HTML, not all RSS are created equal. If you see that your favorite RSS is not being picked up by us, please contact us with the RSS type and we will add it to the verification list. You can contact us on Twitter.
