Feeder 3.3

Feeder IconFeeder 3.3 is now available. This version includes support for tabs on macOS Sierra, along with improvements for split screen mode, editing, sharing to Facebook, publishing, drafts and more.

macOS Sierra

Sierra has introduced tabs for windows, and Feeder 3.3 has been updated to work well with these. In version 3.3 library and editing windows can be tabbed together, if desired, and there’s a new setting in General preferences to control that. Feeder respects the setting for tabs in Dock System Preferences, but you can reverse that default by holding on Option when you create or edit items.

Editing & Drafts

Drafts were added in Feeder 3.2, but it wasn’t always clear when something not in the feed had been saved as a draft. Now Feeder shows a count next to the Drafts button, along with a count of unpublished items next to the Items button.

It’s now possible to set defaults for when pasting or inserting HTML links into the description for the “target” and “rel” attributes. People who have Feeder set up to post to their blogs may set the target to “_blank”, for example, to open the link in a new window. The “rel” attribute can be used for a number of purposes, including to thwart “tab nabbing” in some browsers.


Occasionally people need to upload everything in a feed again, such as when moving to a new server. Feeder 3.3 normally only uploads files once, but you can now set all files to be uploaded again in the Publishing section of a feed’s Settings. This can also flag any missing files, so you can be sure everything will be uploaded.

Facebook Sharing

Feeder 3.3 can now share links to Facebook groups you administer, and when sharing manually by choosing Post to Facebook from the Share button in the toolbar or Item > Share menu, you can now choose a page or group from all the ones available to your Facebook account.


Feeder 3.3 costs $49.99, is a free upgrade for all Feeder 3.x users and requires El Capitan 10.11 or later. An upgrade from Feeder 2 is $24.99. A fully functional 15-day trial can be downloaded from Reinvented Software. See the release notes for a full list of changes.
