Tako Movable Comments


This plugin allows you to move comments from one post or page to another. You can also move comments across post types and custom post types.

By using this plugin in order to move comments, admins no longer need to manually insert the post ID number. Instead, admins can choose the post title through a drop down list. This allows admins to choose the post title that they want to move the comments to easily. Nested comments will also be automatically moved if the comment chosen to be moved has any nested comments under it. This plugin also allows admin to move WordPress comments in bulk. It has a bulk action that moves bulk comments automatically across posts, pages, and custom post types!

In order to use the plugin, just click on edit comments and move your comments through the ‘Move Comments with Tako’ metabox.

Notice: PHP5 is required since version 1.0.5!


  • Move comments across posts, pages, and posts under custom post types
  • Automatically move all the nested comments under the comment chosen to be moved
  • Manual insertion of post ID is not needed; post/page can be chosen under a dropdown list
  • No more ugly dropdowns! Autocomplete enabled; searching for post title becomes easier
  • Comments can be move in bulk! No more slaving around and moving only one comment at a time!

For quite some time, Tako Moveable Comments has been broken. It does appear to move comments, and it’s easy to use, all that. But the comments are then invisible. They can be seen in the editor for a post or page, but they do not display in the actual public page. If the comments are moved back to where they were, they display. There have been some comments on this but no apparent response. (To be fair, I have not tried emailing the provider.) It’s a shame. It could be very useful!

Allow moving replies ?

This plugin works perfectly; it would be great if it could also change nesting level of replies when using threaded comments.
