Help with Opera 12 Data

  • To all you old timers out there....

    Wow, didn't know MyOpera was closed. There was probably something about this subject on there.

    I would like to know if anyone has any idea how to convert all the data in the "adr" file to text, csv, sql or some other format so that I can save all the data. I'm NOT just trying to save the links.

    The "adr" file is composed of five fields:

    <ul>
    <li>Title</li>
    <li>Folder</li>
    <li>Address</li>
    <li>Nickname</li>
    <li>Description</li>
    <li></li>
    </ul>
    I have well over ten years of data saved in the adr file using all five fields.  The links are the least of my worries since a large percentage don't even exist anymore. But all the notes I made are important to me.
    

    I need to save this data into some kind of database or spreadsheet format so when Opera 12 is finally killed of I don't lose the data.

    Thanks for any help.

    Yeah, well the instructions aren't so hot. I don't get it and there is no edit key. sorry.

  • If you install Opera 23+ it'll install alongside the current Opera 12 install and leave its data intact. It'll then save a copy of your current notes in the desktop in a HTML page file. You'll also be able to import your bookmarks to (SQLite) Speed Dial (favorites.db) or bookmarks bar/file (Bookmarks - no file ext) if you wish - the Bookmarks one is compatible with Chromium-based browsers.

    Other browsers might be able to import Opera's ADR for some time in the future still... You also have the option to go into the tools menu in Opera 12 → Import/Export and export them in another format...

  • Thanks rafaelluik. I'm running 23, Next and Developer as well as 12. I'm not trying to save notes. I'm also not really trying to save the bookmarks for the "links" which is what happens with Opera 23 or Iron/Chrome/Dragon. I've imported the bookmarks into Opera 24 Developer for example. I've also imported my active working bookmarks into 23 and Next. That doesn't save the data however.

    I'm trying to save the "Description" field in the adr file as will as the nickname, title, address and folder fields. There are also other fields including created and visited date fields. I have a utf 8 Operate adr viewer that will pull the data but I don't have a way to convert the date code to a real date.

    I have something that will pull the data, now I just need to convert the dates.

    In Opera 12 bookmarks manager, the tooltip window shows that:

    CREATED=1222679295 converts to 9/29/2008 at 02:08:15

    Anybody have any idea how to convert the date code?

    Thanks for the help.

  • ok, it is the UNIX Epoch timestamp.

    Now that I can convert the data I just have to figure out how to store it.... ???

    Any suggestions?
