Deleting a Page - Can I transfer the comments?

    Hi,

    I'm deleting a page about my blog (http://ariannasrandomthoughts.com/about/) and made a new one page - about me (http://ariannasrandomthoughts.com/about-me/). Right now I have two pages. If I delete one of the pages - the comments are deleted as well. Is there any way I can transfer the comments from the one page to the other?

    Thanks for your help.

    The blog I need help with is ariannasrandomthoughts.com.

  2. There is no automatic way to do this. We used to be able to do this by using a manual copy and paste workaround. The instructions are found under "Moving Comments" in this article > WordPress.com Comments and Discussion Settings but a recent change to the commenting system may mean that we cannot do this now. I haven't tried so I can't say for sure http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/when-a-comment-thread-reaches-the-last-tier-no-reply-link-is-provided?replies=23#post-886510

    Thanks! I may just do it manually. I think I may try deleting them and copying them onto the the new page.

  4. Don't delete them first. If you delete them they are gone forever.
