I am writing because I am trying to populate my forum with posts made by a set of users on another old forum.
What I would like to do is to create these threads - and the subsequent posts they may have - keeping the original creation date.
Altering the “created_at” field at POST time does not work. I am working via the API.
TL;DR If a thread made on the old forum was posted on Oct 14, '11, at 07:45 am, how do I keep the original posting date&time when importing it into a new Discourse forum?
Thank you all for your help!
