Despite my best efforts, neither disqus nor blogger wish to cough up any comments written before May 5, from any source, on any post.
And this makes me annoyed because I know that you all spent time and energy on those comments… but no, no dice. I only succeeded in importing all my posts twice and having to delete half of them.
So onward and upward and may I never switch platforms again or comments systems, or any of that junk. I fired Disqus because it wouldn’t play nice in showing comment counts. I fired Intensedebate because my pingbacks weren’t showing up. So for now… ye olde wordpress & commentluv is what I’m doing. I’ll try to get a “subscribe by e-mail” widget in there.
Edit: Har har… har har… cry…
I managed to muscle in all the comments, minus the ones I lost in the Disqus transfer (less than a week’s worth). Unfortunately it meant deleting and reimporting most of my posts, republishing them and… spamming everyone’s feed reader. Moar cry.
Also, they imported with tags, not categories, which means I have to either move tags to categories OR learn to use tags… I’m thinking L2use tags.
Off to reorganize tags, categories, and other such nonsense.
