Post OPML too sparse? Winer's list
Over at Scripting News http://archive.scripting.com/2004/01/02#When:6:10:02AM, Dave is collecting OPML files. Awasu users are having a hard time contributing. It's not clear if the OPML file is missing required elements, or Dave's application is asking too much. More info at http://feeds.scripting.com/discuss/msgReader$4#25.

Post Re: OPML too sparse? Winer's list
Maybe he fixed it :? I just submitted a file and it was accepted OK. For reference, this is my template file (it's just the default one):

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

<opml version="1.1">

<head>
    <title>OPML Export</title>
</head>

<body>
{%REPEAT% Channels}
    <outline xmlUrl="{%ENCODED-CHANNEL-URL%}" title="{%ENCODED-CHANNEL-NAME%}"/>
{%/REPEAT%}
</body>

</opml>

Hmmm. Just upgraded to 1.2 (free), and it doesn't like the generated OPML, using the standard template.
Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<opml version="1.1">

<head>
    <title>OPML Export</title>
</head>

<body>

The 1.2 upgrader doesn't touch any of your template files (since you might have changed them). If you look at the template file I posted, the <outline> elements have a title attribute which is missing from your OPML so it looks like you're still using an old template file.

Modify the ExportOpml.template file in your Users directory e.g. C:\Program Files\Awasu\Users\YOUR-NAME\Report Templates\ExportOpml.template. There is also a ExportOpml.template in C:\Program Files\Awasu\Resources\Report Templates but this is what is used when creating the necessary files the first time someone uses Awasu.

If it still doesn't work, you might want to send the generated OPML to Dave Winer. The generated OPML is OK so if it's not being accepted, it's probably something at his end :-)

Post Fixed
You are correct. Using the new template file contained in your earlier post has corrected the problem.

Thanks!
