New HowTos

Sunday, August 10, 2008 by Dave Winer.

As part of the process I'm rewriting the HowTos for the OPML Editor. They're starting to show up in Google, which is good. I'm going to point to them here as they are ready for review. There's a place to leave comments at the bottom of each of the documents. Permalink to this paragraph

Here's the first new howto, it explains how to edit subscription lists with the OPML Editor. Permalink to this paragraph
