Moving links in WordPress

WordPress never fails to astound me with its brilliance.

I still haven’t finished putting this blog together properly yet, but today thought I ought to at least cobble together a mini blogroll of some of my favourite fellow bloggers. I’d already got a blogroll at my old blog, and the thought of copying and pasting them across was not, to be honest, a pleasing one.

A quick Google later though, and I had been alerted to the page residing on every WP blog, at http://yourblog.com/wp-links-opml.php. All you have to do is chuck this into the "import" option on your control panel, and you’re away.

OK, this could be made easier by allowing you to download the OPML file straight from your originating control panel, but I expect it’s not there to avoid cluttering things up with rarely used functions. But it is at least still there, and pretty easy to use.
