Why aren’t Bloglines or Newsgator OPML Editor compatible?

I kept trying to open my OPML file in the OPML Editor and it wouldn’t open. I had a few complaints about that as well. I tried both the OPML file that NewsGator exported as well as the one that Bloglines exported. Newsgator’s OPML file wouldn’t even open (gave me an error) but Bloglines opened with blank titles.

So, I did some cleaning and uploaded an OPML-compatible OPML file.

I wish everyone would make their files compatible with the OPML editor, though. I’m using that a lot lately.

UPDATE: I can’t upload this as an OPML file cause Radio Userland keeps converting it to HTML when it uploads and WordPress.com doesn’t support file uploads yet. If someone could put that on a server somewhere that’d be most helpful. The ZIP file linked from here contains the OPML file.

  1. Can someone please explain what the heck OPML is meant to give me? I’m quite prepared to be called clueless, but isn’t this a crude online outliner? I’ve yet to see a convincing argument as to why I should be interested yet Robert punts it at readers pretty regularly. Doesn’t Furl offer something similar only more elegant?

  7. Robert, drop your outline in a folder inside the Radio UserLand www folder instead of at the top level. Inside that sub-folder, create a #prefs.txt file with this line: #flRender false.

    Then your outline should not render and you can upload your outline as it was meant to be to the world.
