Moving comments

You can’t move comments between posts in Movable Type, right? Wrong. You can.
If you’re running it through MySQL and have phpMyAdmin, then log in to it, select the ‘mt_comment’ table and then click ‘Browse’. Find the comment you want to move and change the comment_entry_id to the entry ID of the entry you want to move it to. Then rebuild, and Bob’s your uncle.

  1. hehe sorry I made you muck through your SQL tables. I’m sure MT would have a nice interface for moving comments, if only they could have foreseen such a clumsy user as myself.
    Good tip, though, I hope it helps someone.
