    Here's my question - How can I transfer many, roughly 100, rss feeds from the same page into a rss reader?

    Problem: I would like to add all of the feeds from the Globe and Mail ( http://www.theglobeandmail.com/rss/ ) into RSSOwl (http://www.rssowl.org/)

    Right now I can add one at a time by just dragging and dropping - but I would like to do this with a few online news papers.

    There is a file on the G&M rss site that will allow me to add all the feeds, but it doesn't break them down into separate categories, i.e., Business, Sports...

    So, can someone help me to find an automated way to add each of them so it appears as if I added them separately?

    Thank you!

    I'm guessing it's an RSSOwl issue.

    I downloaded the OPML file from that site, imported it into Google Reader, and it created folders for all the categories.

    Got it!

    Thanks for your help and suggestions.

    I actually figured it out through trial & error.

    It turns out the dragging the OPML file into OWL will return one large rss feed, as I did... but if you download the file, and then import that text file, it works very well.

    I hope this helps others.

    Thanks again!:)
