(resolved) Support for folders in OPML
« on: March 06, 2011, 06:55:53 PM »
NetNewsWire for the Mac can write "groups" to OPML. feedHopper imported that fine, but flattened the hierarchy. Creating "categories" instead would be nice.

Do you mean folders within folders?  Or just categories in general?

Folders can be created thusly using the nested outline tag:
Code: [Select]
        <outline title="Health" text="Health">
            <outline text="CNN.com - Health" title="CNN.com - Health"
                type="rss"
                xmlUrl="http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_health.rss" htmlUrl="http://www.cnn.com/HEALTH/?eref=rss_health"/>
            <outline text="Diet Blog" title="Diet Blog" type="rss"
                xmlUrl="http://feeds.feedburner.com/diet-blog" htmlUrl="http://www.diet-blog.com/"/>
        </outline>

I have uploaded a fully specified opml file for you to test with:

However at this time we do not support nested folders and will make a note of your request.  Let me know if I misunderstood what you are asking for.

Thanks, your test worked fine. So I tried NNW again, whose OPML is different only in that it says version 1.1, and it worked as well! Maybe I did something wrong yesterday.

I don't need nested folders, so just disregard this thread...

BTW nice touch that feeds I already added are filtered out of the import panel.

simplon,

No problem.  I am glad it was a false alarm :) 

Let us know if you have any questions or problems.  Im going to start posting tutorials once 4.0 is released and that should help out some.

regards
