Migrating comments from Blogsome to WordPress

I’ve made an import rss comments for wordpress. This is useful if you want to import your comments from a system that is not handled by a custom import tool.

Here below the steps to import your posts and comments from blogsome to wordpress :

1. Read my previous post and my previous comments.
2. Login to the blogsome dashboard and see how many comments you have? (ie: 679 comments).
3. Set rss options on Option >> Reading to 679 or set to 700. Save it.
4. Open http://XXX.blogsome.com/comments/feed and save it (ie: rss-comments.xml). Upload rss-comments.xml and put that file on wp-admin directory.
5. Download import-comment-rss.php and then edit import-comment-rss.php. Replace define('RSSFILE', ''); with define('RSSFILE', 'rss-comments.xml');
6. Upload import-comment-rss.php and put that file on wp-admin directory.
7. Open http://yourdomain.com/wp-admin/import-comment-rss.php and follow the steps on your screen.
8. Voila!


* This scripts is modified from import-rss.php
* There’s no URI, IP, Email and User Agent commenter on rss comments, so you can’t import them to the new database.
