Rules and filters that search all of RSS XML

Recommended Posts

I love using filters and rules to limit the content in feeds. It seems like the "Title or content" search option limits the searching to certain parts of a feed rather than all of the XML in the file. I wish it were possible to search *all* the XML. That might make it possible to search for XML tag content with these types of strings to limit feed items by author or day-of-week:

<author>Mary Smith</author>

<pubDate>Sunday

Thanks for such a great feed reader!

Totally agree!

A bunch of months ago I also suggested a feature like the one proposed by Yahoo! Pipes at its time.

The filter feature was able to detect automatically all the tags in the RSS/Atom file. So you could choose <category>, <author>, <source>, even some specific tags like Dublin Core (<dc:author>, <dc:subject>....)
