NOTICE: This is solely NOT a WordPress.com Question, but related to WordPress Migration and Export-Import.
I started blogging in WordPress.com and then shifted my blog to a self-hosted site. But even after that, I din't shut down my .com blog for some internal reasons. Though I stopped updating the .com blog, users are still commenting there. But after a long time, I now determined to shut down the .com site. But before that, I want to import some of the new comments, those posted after the migration.
Suppose, post#5 had 3 comments, when I migrated, now it has 5 comments — so, 2 new comments are in post#5.
As because I have to Export
.xml data from the .com site, and the
.xml contains all the post comments etc. in it. So, I've to find out a way that only import and add, but doesn't duplicate and/or delete and/or overwrite any of my site's present post content or comments or any other settings.
Is that really possible?
What I got so far is the
.xml, and I got that the comment resides under
<wp:comment> under each
<item> with the
$post_id and others:
<item> <wp:post_id>$post_id</wp:post_id> <wp:comment>$comment</wp:comment> </item>
I've actually no idea about how to proceed with WordPress
.xml data file.
