Link List Module for EE

Yoshi has released the Link List Module for EE for beta testing. Sweet!

Most of my links to other sites I already have set up in a Blogroll that was made from a tutorial by LisaJill which is now at the EEWiki. The thought of manually copying over all those sites into the new module had me thinking that I would definitely not be getting anything else done this weekend. But LisaJill suggested that I could set up a template to output the Blogroll into an OPML file and then import that into the Linklist Module.

And so I did. Even though I am completely clueless about OPML, I somehow muddled through. I downloaded the OPML from my old Blogrolling.com account, and used that as a guideline. After a couple of fits and starts, I got it done. The only thing is that it doesn't import the description field, and I will have to manually add the RSS and Favicon links. But at least I can get the site links up. So, for a start, here is my Link List. I can already see that I need to do some serious updating. But with the handy bookmarklet included in the module, that should be quick and easy to do.

Great job, Yoshi!
