I have a new version of a site we're finishing, and we're transferring content to it now from the previous (old) version of the site.. So, I made sure both the old and new sites are running ChronoComments 1.2 and made a backup of the comments on the old site,.. and 'restored' them into the new site.. the comments show in the admin of the new site,.. but not the front end.!! I can post a new comment and it shows..

Max.. Help...

Hi revive,

I know zilch about ChronoComments :-( and Max hasn't been here for a week or three. Try contacting him directly through the Contact Us form.

Hey Bob,.

Thanks for the reply.. where's Max hiding? It's not typical, at least when I was frequenting the forum, to see him absent for very long at all... I will email him again and see what comes up..
thanks again and take care.

Hi revive,

As far as I know he's been working on a big client project - but he's been very quiet.

Well, I know how those can go Over this last year we have shifted our business/development focus from developing/designing a mass of websites for our clients,. to developing SaaS apps and the like. Talk about time intensive lol.. very good, and thanks once again for your reply

I'm not an expert, but have you tried doing a backup/restore in myPHPadmin instead of the Joomla backend? Worth a shot...

@warriorgov79,

yes, tried that also.. direct import to phpmyadmin from old site to new site.. no dice.. I can still view all the comments in the admin page, but nothing displays on the front page.
I can also create a new comment, which DOES display... lol, but none of the imported ones.

Thanks for the recommendation though.,. it was right on to check that!

Hi Jesse,

It sounds as though there must be some field or flag set in the database that isn't matched up. If you compare the one that shows with one that doesn't is there any obvious mismatch?

Bob, you're genius... !! I didn't even think to look for an 'off' field setting..

It was the pageid from the old site to the new..

thanks again!
