Merge Global Lists?

edited October 2012 in Need Help
What is the best way to merge all the global list files from 1 installation to another one. I dont want to overwrite or replace the files where i import to, i want to add to the data.. thx

    Easiest way might be to write a batch for this: 

    If you want to do this by hand:
    -> delete duplicates on both lists first
    -> open list with editor and copy/paste URLs from ProjectListA to ProjectListB.
    -> delete duplicates

    You could also use scrapebox for this but it is limited to 1m URLs per file.
  • Thanks Ozz, well if it was one file for identified, submitted and verifieds it would not be problem for me to clean urls and append to the other files. However theres countless files under each of these, means i would have to copy the files list manually into each file..

    I do have sbox, maybe i can try to use it on this..

    if you don't want to do this by hand than write a batch. maybe there are tools that do exactly this.

    Or you can just use the Import/Export function for site lists. On Import it appends the list to the present one (adding not overwriting).

    The writers of Scrapebox provide a FREE utility to do both these functions (merge & dedupe) very easily. Get it here.
