    Just been trying out a blogroll export/import and noted two minor issues:

    1. The export doesn’t include link descriptions. Any suggestions on creating a hacked version of wp-links-opml.php that includes this data would be very welcome.

    2. The Blogroll Import via URL doesn’t accept a query string, so it’s currently not possible to run, say, http://domain.com/wp-links-opml.php?link_cat=3. The only current option to use run the script plus query via the browser, save the page and then import from the local machine – which could be 2 steps too much for many users.

  • Hi Esmi,

    Did you ever get an answer for this? I’m creating an OPML file to import links I have and need to include the description. Since WP doesn’t export the description, I’m unsure of how to format the file for importing.

    Nothing – sorry 🙁

    This has been bugging me for a while too, so I sat down and hacked out a solution. Adding a single block of code into the /wordpress/wp-links-opml.php file will fix the problem and add descriptions to your OPML files. You can find the solution at my website:
