Bug: Import Function does not import comments properly

Postby ainkami » Wed Apr 15, 2009 7:50 pm

After exporting a filter list and then importing it into ABP, the comments in the filter list does not retain their proper position. However, the comments retain their proper position in the exported filter .txt file.

And you are sure your list is not sorted.

My list is unsorted. This is a bug with the rarely used import function. Most people use subscriptions, so it doesn't come up for most of them.

The problem is probably that your comments aren't in the "My Ad Blocking Rules" group. However, right now comments are always added to this group (before Adblock Plus 1.0 it wasn't even possible to have comments elsewhere). Unfortunately, the exported filters don't contain any information on the group in which comments should be put. I guess putting comments in the same group as the filter that follows them will be the right thing to do.
