How do I change my news feed sources?

  • There's one particular rag publication masquerading as a news source that comes up in the feed on my Speed Dial page that I want so badly to banish from my sight forever. Is this possible? I can't seem to find any fine-grained feed source selections. Is there a secret page I can go to, to edit the sources list?

    Perhaps there's an extension someone might know of to accomplish this?

  • I want to remove the smut from my feed section on opera.mobile. how do I do that?

  • I'd also appreciate knowing how to customize (delete some) of the source feeds. These defaults can't be permanent, can they?

    It's not possible. However, you can just ignore the 'pre-defined' ones and add your own as long as they have a rss feed.

  • i keep getting conservative leaning articles in my feed, i'm as far from conservative as i can get. i don't want to read that crap.

    You can add your own feed sources.

  • The answer doesn't address the problem. I don't want those conspiracy and alt right links to be there at all. How can I delete them from the feed, or better yet just delete feed altogether. If there isn't a way to do one of those things, I will uninstall Opera.

  • Exactly. Adding feed sources is not the issue. However, if a user has the option add them, they should have the option to remove them as well. There should be an option to permanently deselect individual providers.

    Just don't add them. You can use yours news feed only if you want.

    How can I delete them from the feed

    If you are talking about the default/suggested feeds, you can't remove them from mthe list but you can ignore them as I said.

  • However, if a user has the option add them, they should have the option to remove them as well.

    You can remove any news feed that you have added. Just select it and click on 'remove from my sources'.

  • Current as of 3/29/2017 - Personal News Feeds - Removal - Goto "Add sources" and put in the feed you want to remove, wait for it to resolve, uncheck the box. Hope this helps

  • Screen shot? Because I can't find Add sources - new user and frankly HORRIFIED at what shows up in the feed - why in the world would the assumption be I want to see explicit porn and alt right propaganda? I REALLY want to like your browser, I REALLY want to get the rest of my family to use it because of the privacy features. Yes, I can just shut off the feed...but I have teenagers (who I'm sure already know how to access porn, blah blah blah) but I don't need to point them at something like that and then just say "hey, turn it off" when they might want to use some of the other features that go away when it is turned off. So. Is there a clear cut explanation for how to remove the degrading pornography from the feed or not? It takes me awhile to get used to a new app and I would like step by step instructions, with screen shots, please. Or just clearly state that Opera is ok with some truly awful stuff being the default of their organization. (as I will do when I review the mobile app)

  • Screen shot? Because I can't find Add sources

    Of course you shouldn't be seeing something like this and you can report it.

  • I will report it ("Teen getting f*&^%ed in hot tub" was one...and yes, it was explicit. I hope she isn't actually a teen. And then multiple others scrolling through from the same blog about sex.) I will look at what you've shown above and see if it will let me remove things that were there when I install the app - I've not selected ANY of my own content so it isn't as if I can remove something I put there.

  • Also, I'm only seeing questionable content in my FEED. And stuff that frankly I don't care about - like how to be a better kisser, etc. Is there a way to say "not interested, don't show me stuff from that site" (as is possible in other social media) or am I stuck with whatever it is Opera thinks I'd be interested in? (I could do without the feed at all but like I said, I'm not going to recommend it to the rest of the family if it can't be edited.)

    Well, both this and the other issue are something to be discussed in another topic as they are kinda Off-topic here.
