User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0 Build ID: 2013010500 Steps to reproduce: Import OPML file from Opera browser. This file contain sub-elements/ subfolder, for example: <outline text="text" title="title" > <outline text="text1" title="title1" type="rss" xmlUrl="url1" /> <outline text="text2" title="title2" type="rss" xmlUrl="url2" /> </outline> (Thunderbird 17.0.2 Linux) Actual results: Sub-elements (subfolders) have not been imported and imported entries not have source url.
I think I've seen comments in the Feed reader code this is not yet supported. Alta88, is this still the case? Is this a dupe of something?
opml import was fixed in Tb15 to support sub outlines, for Tb imports/exports. if it's not working, the entire opml should be attached, though that snippet looks like it should work.
Created attachment 702359 [details] example (complete opml file) This is a little example (opera-newsfeeds.opml): one newsfeed and one folder with two newsfeed. In Thunderbird I get only two entries and 0 folder.
this works exactly as intended, for me, using Tools->Import into a new feeds account. the result is 2 folders in the new account (in folderpane); the first has 1 feed, the second has 2 feeds. you can see this in Subscribe..
ls <profile dir>/Mail/Feeds/ feeditems.rdf Liferea - News msgFilterRules.dat OS.msf Trash.msf feeds.rdf Liferea - News.msf OS Trash
as i said, that is all as expected. what is the bug?
0 folders in folders panel after import source with subfolders is Ok?? Hmm.. this behavior is not typical for any RSS aggregator.
you don't seem to understand that the rss icon in a folderpane feed account indicates a folder. a feed folder may have 0, 1, or many feed subscriptions attached to it, which structure is better shown in the Subscribe dialog. if there were a 2 level nesting in the opml, the folderpane item would have an a twisty, indicating subfolders.
It's a feature? Sorry, but this is just bad design.
