How to export OPML file from Feedly?
need opml file as a backup
We just added OPML export to feedly. To do so please visit: http://cloud.feedly.com/#opml
Cut and paste the content of this file into a local file and name it feedly.opml.
That way you will have all your feeds on your computer.
Bumling this thread, in hope of a fix. Running this from iOS Safari do not work. Period.
What software can I use to download my opml file? For example like a PDF file I would need Adobe Reader. I am using Vista and a pop up comes up saying I do not have the right file type and now it defaults to Word.
Thanks in advance, any advice would be much appreciated.

This is not going to work. Like others have mentioned I, too, am unable to use the file provided with any reader.

Please fix the OPML export. The current version is no good because it's not valid XML (for example " and & are not being escaped)

I've done all that but it still won't happen for me. I must be thick and have done something wrong.
Further clarification to the procedures would be most welcome.
Well yeah - it works. But you have to do some changes to your file.
Once you've created the file using a text editor search for all the "&" in the text and replace them with "&". I used TextEdit where you find a useful 'replace-function'. Save the file. Be sure your text editor is encoding in UTF-8.
Thanks for your advices anonymous poster (July 7) :)
Step 1: From the Feedly sidebar, select Organize,
then click on the link called, "EXPORT OPML(Organize your feedly to your liking: remove the categories and websites you are not interested in. Import OPML | Export OPML)." You can also go directly to the Feedly OPML export page at http://cloud.feedly.com/#opml.
Step 2: Once your subscriptions appear, copy the text and paste it into your favorite text editor. Save the file as, "feedly.opml." IN UNICODE FORMAT THEN IMPORT WHERE EVER YOU WANT IT
Not working for me, either. Clarification on procedure would be appreciated. I get to the stage where I'm supposed to copy the text, but can't manage to create a workable 'local file' in opml format.
What do you mean by a "local file"? Like into a text editor? Which text editors have worked for you?
(I've been attempting this all afternoon and I think I'm doing something wrong...)
It is working? I am not able to use the opml file. It is not importing to digg reader for example.
Won't work :(
Exported feedly opml won't import into Feedly! I want to split my feeds into two separate accounts.

The export is broken - you don't escape special XML characters like " or &.
"Completed" are you kidding? evenly feedly won't import its own exported opml content!
I am really disappointed with you guys. Your export doesn't work, so I'm stuck with feedly. If you want me to stay on, you'll fix the export feature, otherwise, If I go to the trouble of manually re-entering my feeds to another reader, you can be sure I won't be coming back :(

I want to update the exported OPML to delete some "broken" feeds, then import the new feed file to OVERWRITE all existing feeds in Feedly. Ideas...anyone??
Concur on converting & to & and also duplicating xmlUrl tags with htmlUrl tags. That fixed most of the issues I had with importing to WP.
