Importing del.icio.us bookmarks as OPML

    This is not a question, but a solution to a question I had. I use del.icio.us to manage my bookmarks. I wanted to import them as links into my sidebar, and I could not figure out how to do it. Del.icio.us does not export OPML, and apparently WordPress does not import RSS. So, I needed a script that would convert RSS to OPML. I found one, but it was designed to create OPML for podcasts, and that did not work for WordPress. I tweaked it, and it works now. If anyone wants the script, you can find it at my blog NeoArch

    Great man, nice find! And before I forget, Matt should add it to faq.wordpress.com and Mike to teh sticky as well!

    teh sticky

    You’re beginning to type like me. :)

    I’d add it but it’s a PHP script. That’s not something most people are going to be able to run. (Unless I’m missing something here.)

    drmike,

    That’s true. Probably most people are not. I have access to some server space, plus I have EasyPHP running on my computer. Most people using wordpress.com have neither.

    Perhaps I will set up a form on my server space where people can enter the their username and category as variables and it will generate the OPML for them. If I do I will add the link to this thread.

    Better yet, perhaps wordpress.com could take the script and do that. Perhaps they could even incorporate it into the blog.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
