I haven't been in the WordPress scheme of things for a long time, but was wondering if it's possible to delete posts, leaving behind their comments. Then import xml for wordpress into existing wordpress which has the same posts, if it would keep the post's comments from previous copy?
I have a copy on live site with wordpress currently, but before I had removed specific comments only. In the older copy of wordpress blog, I have same posts with same exact IDs for the posts, and comments / time / date etc.. I'm just looking to import only the "lost comments" or "deleted comments" again.
Or is there a way to "merge" duplicate posts with current posts? I was thinking if I could delete the duplicate comments from older copy, and the post itself .. it would leave behind only the comments that were missing from current/live wordpress copy.. Then make export / xml file.. and import just what's missing.
I hope this is perhaps possible? Thanks in advance. :)
