Remark42

Migration

Remark42 supports importing comments from Disqus, WordPress, or native backup format. All imported comments have an Imported field set to true.

Import from Disqus

  1. Disqus provides an export of all comments on your site in a gzipped file. This option is available in your Moderation panel at Disqus Admin > Setup > Export. The export will be sent into a queue and then emailed to the address associated with your account once it's ready. Direct link to export will be something like https://<siteud>.disqus.com/admin/discussions/export/. See importing-exporting for more details
  2. Move this file to your Remark42 host within ./var and extract, i.e. gunzip <disqus-export-name>.xml.gz
  3. Run import command - docker exec -it remark42 import -p disqus -f /srv/var/{disqus-export-name}.xml -s {your site ID}

Import from WordPress

  1. Use that instruction to export comments to file using standard WordPress functionality
  2. Move this file to your Remark42 host within ./var
  3. Run import command - docker exec -it remark42 import -p wordpress -f /srv/var/{wordpress-export-name}.xml -s {your site ID}
