    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:
    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';

    wow! thank you very much! It works fine 🙂

    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?

    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.

    Nice! 😀

    Sorry for being uninformed but what do you mean by run this SQL query?

    Ok I fgured that out bit for some reason when a comment is left on an entry that was part of my MT import I don’t get the notification e-mail.
