How to enable Safari Reader Mode only for specific websites

One of the new features in macOS High Sierra is the ability to force specific websites into Safari Reader Mode.

Reader Mode is a feature that allows you to read online articles in a continuous view without ads or distractions. Reader Mode also merges multi-page articles into a single window. You can enable Reader Mode for all websites, but I only do it for certain ones.

  1. To get started, launch Safari and click Safari > Preferences.
  2. Click the Websites tab.
  3. Click Reader in the General menu on the left side of the window. This screen shows you all the tabs you currently have open.
  4. For any sites that you want to enable Reader View on, just select the On option in the dropdown menu.

If you want, you can enable Safari Reader Mode on all websites at the bottom of this preferences screen. Just change the When visiting other websites option to On.
