Usage :

  • Click a feed or feed folder in Feedly
  • Click the downward arrow on the top right of your feeds. It'll take a second or two to load likes/shares for all the articles and sort them in descending order.
  • Make sure you change layout to "Titles" from the cogwheel. It can be permanently set under "Preference > Default View" at the bottom of the left side navigation pane.
  • Additionally, next to each feed, there's a red upward/downward arrow. You can hit that to 'mark as read' all feeds above/below respectively.
  • When you click on a new feed, it automatically gets the unread count unless you have manually altered the number of feeds to sort.
  • Update : If sorting is not correct or articles are mixed up from previous feed, reload that particular feed.
