Feedly and Opera 12 (remembering login)

  • As many of you have no doubt noticed, for the last week or two Feedly requires you to re-authenticate every single time you visit the site, even if you switch away from the page and go back to it 5 seconds later.

    There used to be a one-time workaround for this: copy a certain cookie from another browser (no others show the problem), but that no longer helps.

    Is anyone aware of a current workaround?

    Note: I'm using the Google authentication method.

  • Me too. Searching the web didn't help.

  • Getting sick of this, I tried it again using the same old method, and it works again!

    -Right-click the page, Edit Site Prefs, Cookies tab, delete all cookies for the site.
    -Visit and login via Google as usual.
    -Right-click the page, Edit Site Prefs, Cookies tab.
    -Select an unimportant cookie that will just be recreated anyway, such as: feedly.leftnav.pinned.
    -Edit that cookie and change Name to "session@cloud"; change Value to the very long string that begins with "{"plan":"standard","provider":"GooglePlus"" that you've copied out of Firefox's session@cloud cookie for Feedly.
    -OK out of the dialogs, refresh the site, and you should be done.
  • Feedly upgraded their login system this week to support more types of logins. The above procedure will need to be redone, but it all still applies with the exception of one thing: the cookie's name is now "feedly.session" instead of "session@cloud," though YMMV if you're using some of the new types of logins, in which case take note of the name when you're retrieving the cookie from another browser.
