#6393 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Export & import blogroll with categories

Reported by: jayminkapish Owned by:

Component: Import Keywords: needs-patch
Focuses: Cc:


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. :)

This ticket has not seen any activity in over *two* years, so I'm closing it as "wontfix".

The ticket may lack decisiveness, may have become irrelevant, or may not have gathered enough interest.

If you think this ticket does deserve some attention again, feel free to reopen.

For bugs, it would be great if you could provide updated steps to reproduce against the latest version of WordPress (5.0.2 at the time of writing). Remember images or a video can be superior to explain a problem. At the very least, quickly test again to make sure the bug still exists.

If it’s an enhancement or feature, some extra motivation may help.

Thank you for your contributions to WordPress! <3
