OwnNote Not Importing


#1

Not sure if this is posted in the right place, but here goes...

I just activated the OwnNote app, but I am unable to import my Evernote .html export files. The instructions say to 'upload' the files into the /notes folder and they will be imported, but that directory does not appear in my folder structure. I have also tried to deposit content directly into the /apps/ownnote folder, again with no success. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

I suppose you checked all the guides on the app's repo https://github.com/Fmstrat/ownnote. Have you errors in your log? Best is probably to report it to the developer. Though, the development of this app seems not very active.
At Nextcloud, they started a new notes app with more developers, it seems to be compatible with oC as well: https://github.com/nextcloud/notes

Hi,

I'm using ownNote and do "importing" simple HTML-Files as note from time to time.

I have configured - within the administration sector - ownNote to use database and directory for the notes.
Than I have configured the note-directory with /Notes.

After that you will find the directory defined within your file structure.

Placing a .html file to that directory will import that "as note" and shows the file "exported" as .htm.

Sometimes the import takes time to start. If you access the notes-app via Web-Interface it will trigger the importer.

Hope that helps.
