Subscribing to a Website/RSS Url

Once you have created an account with MultiPLX, adding websites and/or feed URLs should not take much time. This guide should help you get started with the process.

Basically there are two ways to add a subscription:

  1. Using the +PLX button
  2. Adding it manually via URL

 

Adding manually via URL

To add a website/feed URL, click on the +PLX blue button in top navigation bar.

In the modal dialog that opens, type in the URL in the box and click Submit. 

After a few moments, you should be viewing the latest entries from your favorite website.

Using the +PLX Button

To use the +PLX button, click on the +PLX blue button in top navigation bar. In the modal dialog that opens, look for the +PLX button. Drag (left-click and hold) on the button and take it to your browser’s bookmark bar.

Now to add content, just visit your website in the browser. Once there, just click the +PLX button icon from your browser’s bookmark bar. You would then be directed to MultiPLX website where you would be shown the latest entries from the website.

MultiPLX, a visual  RSS Reader designed from ground-up to be as scalable and fast as Google Reader emerges from stealth mode.

WALNUT CREEK, CA – April 17, 2013

MultiPLX  a tech startup out of Walnut Creek, CA emerges from stealth mode as an alternative to closing Google Reader.

MultiPLX is a visual RSS Reader and works as a full web service, designed from ground-up to be as scalable and fast as Google Reader.

"Although there are many variants that are trying to imitate Google Reader at the moment, most of them are desktop clients or mobile apps that depend on Google Reader engine. MultiPLX is a full web based service with a back-end that can scale-up to serve millions of users, and billions of feed posts each day with a speed that is unmatched even in desktop clients.” said Emre Kosmaz founder of MultiPLX.

"The speed and scalability of  Google Reader is not something you can deliver overnight and we have been working on this project to be par with Google Reader for the last 8 months” he added.

MultiPLX already supports seamless migration from Google Reader with capability to import OPML files through Google Takeout.

MultiPLX is now in private beta and invite only mode and Google Reader users can use promotion code GOOGLEREADER to get their invitation e-mails right away.
