Move comments from one post to another

    It will be nice to have an "inbuilt" feature to move comments from one post to another. This will be helpful because, many users comment on wrong pages i.e they comment in the contact page, instead of the products own post page.

    Those comment are valuable but it will be irrelevant to the content. So having a "move" option by default will be helpful.

    This feature can turn WordPress into a mini support forum also..

    It would be nice to have the feature as part of the core WordPress install because people do tend to comment on random pages.

    Until that day, there's a plugin that does this which is a little tricky to use because you need to know the page ID numbers, but it does work: http://www.nkuttler.de/wordpress/nkmovecomments/

    I use the plugin Verysimple suggested as well, but it's easy to mess up. If you move a comment that's threaded and has comments later in the thread the thread is messed up! So you have to be very careful not to move the wrong comment.

    I've also used http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/move-comments/ on a site that had over 1,000 comments added to one page (lazy commenter's always used the same post to comment on no matter what the subject!) that needed moving to multiple different pages, took ages and again made multiple mistakes.

    Would be great to have a core feature that allowed us to safely move comments around, split threads, move entire threads from one post to another etc...

    It's an interesting point that the WP UI doesn't have this built in..there are two ways that can make this happen, by directly manipulating the WordPress database...the second way is not actually about moving the comments, but rather about moving the post itself out of its comments.

    This feature would be a good one, I think many people would appreciate it. I only get comments on some posts, it would therefore be great having an option of moving comments to other posts to even it out a little. For some reason visitors don't leave comments to a post that doesn't already have comments. I think many WordPress users have the same problem and it would therefore be great if this could be embedded into the core. The plugin for this is too messy.

    Recently, I wrote a plugin that deals with moving comments in WordPress. This post actually inspired me to work on the plugin.

    Inserting post or page ID manually on WordPress would be tedious to some people. So I decided to create something different for that. The idea of automatically moving nested comments intrigues me so I decided to include that as a feature in this plugin.

    A core WordPress feature for moving comments will be very helpful for some people as I have the same problem when it comes to moving comments as well. But until then, I hope my plugin will be useful to some people.

    Here is the link: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tako-movable-comments/

    Cheers, all!

    thanks #RenettaRenula, it really works very well, but I need help in other situation.. I've a web site with 2 languages (English & French) and it contain a Guestbook page in an English version and "Livre d’Or" in its French version, now is there something like the plugin you already did which allow me to show comments from one page to another without deleting it from the source automatically or mix comments of the two pages automatically, in order to it supposed to be one page which have all comments in two languages, thanks in advance
