OPML Import

Posted June 1, 2003 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Development.

I just put the finishing touches on Mike’s OPML import for WordPress Links. I’ll admit that personally I hadn’t moved over to using Links yet because I have about a hundred in the Blogrolling system I didn’t want to enter all over again. Luckily they make your blogroll available in a format called OPML (here’s an example of mine) that we can parse easily. All you have to do is choose a category you want the links in, enter the OPML URL, and go. It’s as easy as the rest of the WordPress experience. This will be available officially in the .71 release.

  1. hey, cool stuff, thanks for picking it up. A few things. First, I wrote a coupla quickie functions to add to wp-links/links.php that help me easily show links how I like to. Where can I submit them or do you care? 😉 Also, do you plan for this site to take on (some of?) the functionality of the old cafelog…with updateds, randoms, and such?

  2. Email it to me and I’ll look at getting it included. I have contemplated some centralized services for wordpress.org, and we’ll see how that develops when the product is more mature.
