I follow multiple networks in Stack Exchange where I select Hot/Week/Month to see what I missed.

This is a bit time consuming since I have to switch and click to each one instead of having it delivered to me.

I tried my RSS reader of choice to add the feeds but it defaults to Recent instead of the time period I chose.

Can anyone recommend a better way?

There are separate RSS feeds for Hot/Week/Month, etc. EG:

The API /questions route offers equivalent sorting options for Hot/Week/Month. EG:


Important: There appears to be a bug in the feed <link>s for such pages, so your feed discoverer/reader may not work correctly.

But the hidden-ish feed icon, in the bottom right column, does have the correct RSS/Atom URL:

  • Interesting, thanks for the tip. My RSS reader did not identify those feeds when the URL for the period was entered.
