OPML link not working · Issue #898 · PressForward/pressforward

## What I tried/expected:
From the page `/wp-admin/admin.php?page=pf-tools` under the `OPML Link` tab, the instructions indicate:
You can share your subscription list as an OPML file by linking people to

## What happened:
Visiting the indicated link throws the following error:
`Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /htdocs/example/wp-content/plugins/pressforward-4.2.2/includes/opml/object.php on line 48

## Additional information:
I've got a handful of feeds, so I should expect something to appear. Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere? I know that there's a setting for the /feedforward RSS functionality/plugin, is there a similar one for OPML that I'm missing?

Running GitHub version 4.2.2, WordPress 4.7.2

@MailChimp @MailChimpStatus @MailChimp_API @MailChimpUX Can you help WordPress community out here with a response?


Text Before Links text should have stylable class · Issue #47 · dshanske/syndication-links

In tweaking/changing the CSS for the multiple sizes (around v3.1.1), you removed the class from the "Text Before Links" portion, so it's not easily accessible for theming.

It might also be worth putting the entire output into a div with a class as well for better CSS control.

@kevinmarks @benwerd 20 years ago sources were easier because it was painfully expensive to create physical media and distribute


@kevinmarks @benwerd Source evaluation is harder now for web as design is subjective and unevenly applied on the internet.


@kansandhaus Can you nudge someone to fix: Why can't I highlight text on NYT when using Chrome?


Replied to a post on :

I tested this quickly with 4.2.2 patch Release Candidate 1 and it does seemed to have fixed the issue.
Thanks AramZS!
