akregator filter or other rss reader


I use akregator as it comes with full install of slackware.

I'd like to filter articles but doesn't appear akregator can filter and can't find where it stores articles to write delete script.

rssowl looks interesting, what rss app you use that filters?

What exactly do you mean by "filter"?

I believe that Akregator stores its archive in ~/.kde/share/apps/akregator/Archive.

As in not having retrieving articles that meet certain criteria, like a kill filter.

That's a feature I have not encountered in the RSS readers I've used with any regularity. That's not an extensive sampling: the built-in reader in the old Opera, then the built-in reader in Seamonkey, Akregator, and the "The RSS Aggregator" Chrome plugin in Vivaldi.

If they have such a feature, it's buried many fathoms deep.

Right now, I've settled on Akregator. It has a few quirks that I find irritating, but it has the best overall combination of the features that I'm interested in.

A web search for rss reader with filter turned up some results you may find helpful. This looks like the most useful place to start: http://readwrite.com/2008/03/04/6_wa...our_rss_feeds/

It is my personal quirk: I will not use a web-based RSS service. I am confidant that they will be aggregating me.

Thanks frankbell, your readwrite link, 4 links were dead, I don't want to fool with web based either, I'm going to stick with Akregator, not having filter is a minor nag.

What I've been doing in Akregator is put search term in Search, mark everything read, then remove search term and read leftover articles.
