The RSS Blog

News and commentary from the RSS and OPML community.

Judging from my subscriber reporting, a lot of people have been checking out NewsAlloy, an ajax-based RSS reader. So today, I checked it out too. It was pretty awesome. So good, that I decided to switch from Google Reader to NewsAlloy for awhile to give it a real test.

  • Step 1, export my subscriptions as OPML from Google Reader.


    That wasn't supposed to happen.
  • Step 2, grimace at the error message above presented to me by Google Reader when I tried to export my subscriptions as OPML.
  • Step 3, think about making the switch permanent!

Also, NewsAlloy has a blog. Subscribed

Wow, you are correct Randy. It's not working for me either. I'll get on that.

Randy, how do you import OPML into NewsAlloy?  I left a feedback question, no response yet.

Click Manage, then Import OPML.


Ooops! Sorry about that typo. It's Sterling, not Sterline.


Thanks, Randy -- I guess I need new glasses or vitamin A.  I had visited the manage tab, but failed to see the additional tabs across the top.  Looks pretty cool so far.
