To change search keyword or change the search services that are used to provide the search select "Edit search feed" from selected search feed popupmenu. Search feed edit form will be displayed.



Adding search feed services

Search feed service definitions are based on Opensearch standard. This makes it possible for you to add your own search services to Feedreader. Search feed definition file must comply to following rules:

  • Search feed service must be defined in Opensearch standard
  • Search feed service definition must include Url tag with type "application/rss+xml" or "application/atom+xml". Currently Feedreader does not allow HTML search results
  • Search feed service definition must be copied to "opensearch" folder under Feedreader program files folder.
