Finished, just a few minutes ago! That is, I just finished manually copying over all of FF2F’s previous comments that it garnered via Commentics. And by “manually” I mean creating dozens of faux user accounts and copying and pasting over each comment one by one. A bit of a pain in the arse to do, but with this blog having only garnered a couple-hundred or so comments so far it was just “small” enough to warrant the effort. You, of course, would never want to do that with the Diner, supposing you had any desire to migrate things over to a Ghost/Discourse setup.
Because yes, it can technically be done, although I’m not familiar with how the connections would be maintained between posts and their associated “topics” (the SMF-cum-Discourse comment thread). Because while there is an importer to migrate an SMF system to Discourse, and a plugin to migrate Wordpress to Ghost, there is of course nothing to maintain the connections between WordPress posts and SMF threads, which if anything would have to be done manually. <-- FYI, that’s not Dr. Pooper.
Otherwise, yes, they’re both very clean looking on the front-end and just as pleasant looking and functioning on the back-end.
Glad you like it so far!
Ask away if you’ve got any questions. I’m very well versed with Ghost and so-so versed with Discourse.
