I have a work subscription to IHS.com who's news website gives an option to create a filtered RSS feed that works in the Google RSS extension but not in NewsBlur.

I have a feed already from this site that works in NB and comparing the links I noticed the 'RSS' is reversed so I changed that and it works, sort of, it gives me the entire 'news' output without filtering for the specific type of news I'm requesting.

A. Feed link given: works in G-RSS but does not work in NB
"...address does not point to an RSS feed"
http://www.supplierbusiness.com/news/rss 

B. Feed link altered: works in NB and gives ALL news:
http://www.supplierbusiness.com/rss/news

C. Filtered Feed link given: works in G-RSS does not work in NB.
"...address does not point to an RSS feed".
http://www.ihssupplierinsight.com/news/rss?fs_keywords%5B0%5D=&fs_tags%5B3%5D%5B0%5D=328

D. Filtered Feed link altered: works in NB, however, it is NOT filtered and just gives the same output as option B.

Any ideas on how to make this work?

It's the feeds themselves. 

http://www.ihssupplierinsight.com/news/rss?fs_keywords%5B0%5D=&fs_tags%5B3%5D%5B0%5D=328 gives a 404.

And if you look at https://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ihssupplierinsight.com%2Frss%2Fnews%3Ff... then you should see the stories coming through. I believe the filtered RSS feeds just aren't configured properly, as NewsBlur isn't going to do anything but show you exactly the stories that are found in the feed.
