#22994 closed enhancement (fixed)

Remove 'blogroll' from the import options

Now that we've dropped links (#21307), we shouldn't encourage importing them. It'll just confuse the newbies.

This will require a change to, so while we can clean up /wp-admin/includes/import.php (attached) it won't matter till that's scrubbed. Maybe upgrade that to 1.1 so people who are on older WP are left alone?

  • Keywords ux-feedback added

Seems sensible to me. I'd be tempted took hook display to whether they have the plugin enabled or are still running the legacy version though.

Replying to Ipstenu:

I planned ahead. The endpoint receives the version number. :)

  • Keywords needs-testing added
  • Milestone changed from 5.3 to Future Release

With 5.3 Beta 1 shipping today, I'm punting this to Future Release so as not to clog up the 5.4 milestone. However, @hareesh-pillai as the ticket owner feel free to move to 5.4 if you feel comfortable committing to resolving this fully then... thanks!

#12 @dd32
5 years ago

I've committed the change on to not show it in 5.3+. The list in Core is only used as a fallback in the event the API is unreachable (and to allow translations of the importer names/descriptions)

What's the opinion here - Should I leave it as-is, revert, or bump it to not show for 5.4+ instead?

(edit: I had the tabs open and hadn't refreshed the Core ticket, so I wasn't aware it had been bumped at the time)

  • Keywords commit added; needs-testing removed

Testing this applies cleanly and the unit tests run. The Blogroll entry already isn't showing due to the api change so remove this will have no visual affect. Marking for commit to clean this up in core.

#16 @SergeyBiryukov

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

In 47227:

Import: Remove "Blogroll" import option (for links in OPML format) from the list of popular importer plugins.

Link Manager is disabled for new installations since WordPress 3.5, so core should not encourage importing links.

See #meta4706 for the corresponding API change.

Props Ipstenu, hareesh-pillai, DrewAPicture, nacin, karmatosed, dd32, garrett-eclipse.
Fixes #22994. See #21307.
