View Full Version : Large *.OPML truncated

03-24-2016, 03:38 AM
Hi. I exported my feed list (it has about 180 feeds), but I get a truncated file.

What can cause this? Can I export it some other way?

The generated *.opml file is in attachment, and you can confirm the file is not completed.670

I'm not aware of any limits, but I'll check.

Seems the file is truncated at 16020 characters, which is a strange limit

No news. It's a bank holiday weekend.

Thank you for the reply.

I just remembered to say that free storage was not a problem, before someone asks that :)

Latest Beta includes this bub.

Is there any alternate way to export the feeds?

Hi. Here is an update.

I have added and removed some podcast, so exported opml is not the same.

But its now truncated at 19995 characters, so characters number should not be the problem.

New truncated file is in attachment.


Maybe it's a time limit?

There are some special characters in feednames, but it was not truncated there.

Any help would be appreciated.

As a data point, my OPML is 14725 long, and (apparently) complete.

I can't think of a reason for it to be truncated - we've exported a test including about 300 feeds, and it is 34k (about twice the size of yours) and had no issues. Unfortunately, there is no way to export a subset of your feeds.

The only thing I can suggest is to email a backup of your BeyondPod setup to support [at] beyondpod.mobi (IMPORTANT - please include a link to this thread and a brief description of the problem) so that we can see whether there is anything special in your feeds that may cause an issue.
