The mojoportal feed manager module provides built in support for selective publishing of feed entries. You just have to scroll through the list of entries and choose those that deserve publication. So you could subscribe to a number of feeds but only post the best articles that come through. However, thats a manual process, if you want an automatic filter mechanism, you can use one of the several free services available on line and make it work for mojoportal.

There are essentially three categories of filters:

  • filtering by keyword, tag, author,title ecc
  • filtering by postrank
  • adaptative filtering


An example of the first category is FeedRinse, an example of second is AideRSS and, finally, a representative of third is FeedHub.

  1. Sign up at FeedRinse
  2. Click on “Add feeds” icon and add your feeds
  3. For each feed set one or more filters which block or allow the post depending on keywords found in title, author, body or tag
  4. Click on “Create a channel” icon and create your channels aggregating feeds
  5. Finally, click on “Get your rinsed feeds” icon, select “your channel” tab and click the small icon on the left of the channel’s title as shown in the picture below
