    Hi
    I've gotten import my MT database succesfully :-) But there is a problem: all post have closed the comments and trackback options! (and I have 350 posts. Too much for changing manually)
    I've checked my exported file with all my posts and comments and all of them have switch "ALLOW COMMENTS" on, with:
    ALLOW COMMENTS: 1
    Why I have all posts "closed"? Could you help me?
    Thanks and bye!

    You can run this SQL query:
    UPDATE wp_posts SET comment_status = 'open';

    Sorry but... What about trackbacks? :-) I need to open trackbacks for all my posts but i don't found which variable, like comment_status, I have to use.
    How I can activate the trackback (and pingback :)) option to my imported posts?
    Thanks!

    You could do a

    UPDATE wp_posts SET ping_status = 'open';

    to open the pingbacks for all the posts. Trackbacks are just handled as comments and thus when comments are on, trackbacks will also be allowed.
    Peace
