Description

I have attached a patch which will export Blogroll OPML file having a category attribute in it. It is valid to have a category attribute in outline tag. Generated OPML file by wp-links-opml.php has been validated by http://validator.opml.org/.

I have also updated link-import.php and link-parse-opml.php files in wp-admin to parse category attribute and create link_category in database if it does not exist and assign link to that category.

This enhancement will automatically export and import link-categories with links.

  • Keywords has patch export-import blogroll added

I forgot to add description and target in OPML file. So exporter exports description and target as well. Importer imports description right now but does not import targets.

attached a new patch.

Is this still being looked at?

I know I can export my links by going to http://YOURBLOGSADDRESS/wp-links-opml.php and viewing source, but there should be a GUI for this too. After all, we have Blogroll IMPORT on the import tab. :)
