Some time back, Livejournal stealthily added the ability to export comments, but I don't think they ever included this functionality in their own export to xml tool.
Someone else has, though.
ljArchive recently made a big splash with some people, and I think its popularity will only increase. (I'm not connected with the designer in any way other than as a satisfied user.)
The big problem I've discovered is that import-livejournal.php doesn't recognize the comments. (The small problem is that even though ljArchive can export as one large xml file, I still have to export as monthlies or the import tool doesn't know what to do with it.)
How do I, who know basically nothing about PHP, hack the import file so that it will recognize, and properly import, my lj comments?
Is it possible that I'm missing a plug in that would do what I want?
I hope I've explained things properly and that someone can help. I never thought I'd get the comments from livejournal onto my computer, and now that I have, I'd really like to be able to do something with them.
