Frequently Asked Questions

Readeck usually can save the vast majority of news or blog articles but it sometimes fails to do so. The most common reasons are:

  • The page is behind a paywall,
  • The page needs JavaScript to render its content,
  • Your server is blocked,
  • The content extractor fails.

The most common solution to these problems is to install and use the Browser Extension. The extension sends the page's full content to Readeck, so anything can be saved. Moreover, it lets you select the exact content you want to save.

If a page really doesn't work at all, please open an issue.

Yes you can, for a limited time. On each article you can generate a link that'll be valid for 24 hours. You can generate a new link as many times as you want but it will always expire. You can also export or print an article to a PDF file.

Is there a system to store my (paywall) website credentials?

There isn't, for several reasons:

  • It's borderline illegal,
  • To safely store credentials without giving access to anyone but the user is next to impossible,
  • Such a system relies on web scrapping and is prone to break too often.

Again, the Browser Extension will let you save any content you can access from your web browser.

Is there a roadmap?

There are milestones, where you can see what's planned for the future releases.

For longer term goals, there are projects

Is there a Readeck twitter account?

There isn't but you can follow on Mastodon.
