I understand the rationale about the complications of moving huge numbers of comments from Wordpress, however - in my case, I’m a bit stuck.
I’m currently testing my existing site with a Discourse instance. It works great for new posts. No problems.
But I have lots of old posts that regularly get commented on. These are useful, value adding comments, not spam or any old nonsense.
I don’t want to just switch off comments, or keep Disqus running for the old posts. This would devalue the site and the community.
So what do you suggest I do?
I noticed that your partner Boing Boing have transferred all of their old Wordpress comments into Discourse. 2011 Japan Tsunami video / Boing Boing
How can I do something similar for my Wordpress site?
Many thanks in advance.
