The buttons are inoperational and disabled. It seems you wanted to allow them only on the .isServer item in the list (the account name), but that one does return item=undefined. Please check it. Also the status line could be shown more prominently, or even highlighted when its content (a message) changes. It took me a while to notice where did my alert dialogs go. I thought they are not working.
please don't mix multiple unrelated issues in the same bug. 1. the import/export buttons are intentionally meant to be enabled only upon selection of a root account folder, to make clear to the user the imported tree is a child of that folder (and not a selected subfolder) and that the entire account opml is exported (and not a subfolder subset). 2. i'm not clear on the issue. an action (via button) shows the info message directly above the button so i don't know how it can be missed. anyway, unrelated. closing; if there is an actual error, please reopen with detailed steps to reproduce.
I have clicked everywhere in the tree of folders and the buttons were never enabled. Please attach a screenshot where I should click to enable Import and Export buttons.
aha. the problem is a bad check; if you select the very first tree item, it will be the 0 index and incorrectly fail.. if you add a second feed account and select it, the check will pass. a fix will be forthcoming. thanks for the catch.
