Can I change exported .sl files to .txt files so I can read them.

Can I change exported .sl files to .txt files so I can read them.  I'm having troubles verifying what my articles and website content look like when posted to a website.
I think maybe a .txt file would allow me to surf to them pretty easily.
Unless there is a better way.


  • just open the .sl files with your texteditor??!

    OK but, all I get is this:

    PK   ù›>B†lÁI    "   sitelist_Article-Article Beach.txtÍU]kƒ0}ìoôM¥ÒŽ2AÿÄG–\M &!¹Ãõ߯siÁikTú¤rϹžÜŽh^“¤ªª˜XT‚‹:/1Õe"ƒïØpófH™müóC°,Ý»ç'þ—2Š(

    So a text editor is something different than what Windows gives me to make .txt files with.  I tried
    this editor from but it gave me machine language too.
    What should I do to fix this.
    Thanks for your consideration of this problem
  • I must be blind cause I don't see any .sl files when exported

    *.sl files are created when you export site lists into one file. That sl file is nothing else but a ZIP file.
