Frequently asked questions
- How do newsletter subscriptions work?
You get a dedicated email address from LookingGlass for each newsletter you want to subscribe to. You subscribe to the newsletter with that email address, and all emails will show up in your LookingGlass inbox.
- What about double opt-in with newsletters?
If a newsletter uses double opt-in, the first email will quickly show up in your LookingGlass inbox, usually within 1min. To confirm the subscription, open it and click the 'Subscribe' link. Similar to subscribing with your personal email.
- I want to subscribe to a blog but it doesn't find an RSS feed. What can I do?
Automatically finding the RSS feed doesn't work on every website yet, and I'm working on more sophisticated ways to achieve that. For now, it's often possible to find RSS feeds by googling the name of the site and "RSS feed", e.g. "The Economist RSS feed". If you want to support me in making this feature better, send me the blogs that don't work on Twitter.
- Is it possible to subscribe to YouTube?
Yes, YouTube provides RSS feeds for each channel. You can subscribe to them like any other RSS feed. Dedicated support will come in the future.
- Is it possible to subscribe to podcasts?
Most podcasts provide an RSS feed as well. If it does, you can subscribe to it via the RSS feed. Dedicated support will come in the future.
