    Hi all,
    Getting the website re-done my only concern is, i have a facebook comment box (their own code) and a lot of comments on a lot of pages, i dont want to lose these comments in the process is there a way around this?

    I cant edit the existing code as its too complex and i have tried hiring people but they all failed and told me to re do the site.
    (and no im not posting links)

    I just want to know is there a way to save these comments somehow?

    Thanks guys!

    You need to check with the developers of the FB module for the API shite.

    Otherwise, and this is what I recommend: hardcode the comments in. Cheating, but we are on BHW. This is easy.

    If a website is coded badly and most people suggest making a new site and then replace the files, is it possible to actually recoded/repair the current code to new code without starting fresh?
    I know its the really hard way and takes longer but if i keep my comments its all good
