    Hi

    Is it possible for me to move (or at least duplicate) a comment made by someone else on my blog. They have left a comment asking a question, but I think they left it on the wrong post? So I would like to answer it, but also copy the whole thing to the post where I think they intended to leave the comment so that they can find it if they come back to look for an answer?

    If that makes any sense?

    TIA

    The blog I need help with is goatsandgardens.wordpress.com.

    Yes. It’s amanual copy and paste job and the correct gravatar/avatar will not be there. Scroll down to “Moving Comments” for the instructions found in this article.

    Keep in mind that they may have subscribed to comments on that post, so you may want to answer it there where they originally left the comment and simply duplicate the question and answer where you think they meant to put it.

    Excellent point! That could be addressed by editing the comment stating it has been moved and providing a link to the comment after moving it to the post it was meant to be on.
