Recovering Opera Newsfeed from Older Version

  • This morning I was prompted to update opera to Opera 25. I know I am awfully late in joining the game.

    However, this newer version doesn't include email/newsfeed (RSS) feed support. I did not realize that upgrading a piece of software would remove "features" without notifying me. Maybe it did and I did not realize it. If I had known, I would have exported my newsfeed. However, I did not. I have located what looks to be my old news feed in
    C:\Users...\AppData\Local\Opera\Opera\mail\newsfeed . Is there a way to use this to recover my feeds and import them into one of the extensions I have to now use with Opera?

    1. Start old Opera 12
    2. Opera menu Settings -> Import and Export -> Export Feed list
    3. Export as OPML file
    4. Start Opera 26
    5. Install RSS Detector and Smart RSS from http://blog.martinkadlec.eu/post/501-smart-rss-final-v10
    6. In Smart RSS open settings
    7. Import Feeds from OPML file
  • Oh Geez. That is embarrassing. I thought it had un-installed my older version of Opera. Thank you for patiently responding. -.-;

  • You can reinstall old Opera 12 and export, no problem.

    PS: You cant export already received feed articles, only the feed adresses (URLs) and feed folders.
