If you have subscribed to many communities on Reddits, some of the content you want to see may be lost in the mix. For easier browsing, you can create your own "multireddit" that combines messages from multiple subreddits into one feed.
What are multireddits?
At first glance, Reddit's front page can be a bit overwhelming to scroll through ̵
Multireddits or "multis" is a feature that allows Redditors to combine multiple subreddits on one page for easy reading. It works very similar to how RSS news aggregators work. For example, if you want to browse the headlines of the day, aggregated from multiple subreddits with different types of news, you can create a multireddit that combines r / News, r / WorldNews, r / Technology, r / Sports and r / Entertainment
Multireddits are also a great way to sort your favorite feeds into groups of similar subreddits. Instead of going to subreddits one by one, you'll see the latest and most up-to-date posts of them all. Multireddits are also a great way to see messages from subscribers you don't subscribe to.

Making a Multireddit
To create a multireddit, you must use the old version of the Reddit website. To do this, go to User Settings> Account and enable "Unsubscribe from the redesign", making the old version the default. You can also access the old Reddit at old.reddit.com.
On the left side of your home page, there will be an expanding menu where you will see a list of standard multireddits to which you have subscribed. Click on "Create" and enter the desired name for your multi. For this example, we'll call our multi & # 39; Technology & # 39 ;. You will be redirected to your multi's page. From here you can set the multi to public or private visibility.
Then you can type which subreddits will go into it. Just type the name of the subreddit in the text box and click the "+" button to add it to your multi. The following example shows that we have added r / Apple, r / Android, r / Technology and r / PCMasterRace to our multi. They will be immediately visible on the page when you add them.
There is another way to make a multi without having to use the old version of Reddit. The normal URL of a subreddit follows the format "reddit.com/r/" followed by the name of the sub. You can combine multiple subs into a link for a multireddit by adding "+" between each subreddit name. For example, "reddit.com/r/news+worldnews" will lead you to a multi with both r / News and r / WorldNews.
This way of making a multi, you can't give it a custom name. Also, there is no way to access it directly from your Reddit home page, so you will need to add the link as a bookmark to access it later.

Adding Other Multireddits
Like subreddits, you can also add multireddits that other users create and make publicly available. They appear in your left sidebar in the old Reddit, and you can customize them like the ones you made yourself.
If you are on old Reddit, to follow one, go to the profile page of the owner of the multireddit. On the left you will see a box that says & # 39; Public Multireddits & # 39 ;. When you open one of these, click on "Make a copy" and then you can browse or customize that multireddit. You can also read the multireddit directly from the user profile.
You can also share your multis with others in the same way. As long as a multireddit you create is public, other people can make their copies and have it appear in their left sidebar.
Great Ways To Use Multireddits
One of the best things about multireddits is that you can browse the content you want without overwhelming your subscription list. For example, there are thousands of subreddits dedicated to cats. That's why a Reddit cat-loving user has created several multireddits that put together many of the best so that you have an unlimited stream of cat photos without 100 cat-related subreddits that will overwhelm your house feeders.
