i've got problems importing comments from JComments into !joomlacomment.
I can get some stuff imported, but as soon as i set the "Commented component column" to "object_group" the preview doesn't import anything anymore...
Isn't there a default import filter for JComments??
I'm sorry for the delay! It is really a busy week.... So, the problem comes from the fact that the name of the plugin in jcomment is
com_hwdvideoshare_p and in compojoomComment the name of the component is com_hwdvideoshare or com_hwdvideoshareGroup(if you want to comment in your groups) or com_hwdphotoshare and com_hwdphotoshareGroup... Anyway because of this the query that the component creates is wrong. It has a WHERE clause object_name="com_hwdvideoshare" and none of your entries in jcomment has an object_name of com_hwdvideoshare. That is why nothing is shown in the preview and nothing gets imported. To go around this you will need to manually execute the following queries (in phpmyadmin)
INSERT INTO `vpo_comment`(`importid`,`contentid`,`ip`,`userid`,`date`,`name`,`email`,`website`,`notify`,`title`,`comment`,`published`,`voting_yes`,`voting_no`,`importparentid`,`component`,`importtable`)
SELECT `id`,`object_id`,`ip`,`userid`,`date`,`name`,`email`,`homepage`,`subscribe`,`title`,`comment`,`published`,`isgood`,`ispoor`,`parent`,'com_hwdvideoshare','jos_jcomments' FROM `vpo_jcomments` AS f WHERE f.object_group='com_hwdphotoshare_p';
UPDATE `vpo_comment` AS `cupdate` JOIN `vpo_comment` AS `cselect` ON cselect.importtable = cupdate.importtable AND cselect.importid = cupdate.importparentid SET cupdate.parentid = cselect.id WHERE cupdate.parentid <= 0 AND cupdate.importparentid > 0;
UPDATE `vpo_comment` SET `parentid`=-1 WHERE `parentid` = 0;
Do you have comments on com_content? I'm wondering if they can be properly imported with the mapping tool
