More on my goof: Since we’re alerted via e-mail every time a new comment is posted, I was able to re-post almost every comment that has been submitted since late March. Comments added in the past week will be re-submitted on Friday, along with new comments from today.
At this point, I don’t know if there’s a way to back-date the comments to the time and date they were originally submitted. So while everything has been posted in correct chronological order, that order is limited to Aug. 23 (and soon, Aug. 24).
I have the original timestamp on each comment, but MovableType 3.2, to the best of my knowledge, doesn’t allow for comment date and time customization. If anyone knows how to do this, please e-mail me [christine AT ourbodiesourblog DOT org].
If you know of a better way to re-post previously submitted comments other than to go through the deleted e-mails, one by one, find the related entry and complete the name, e-mail and comment fields — well, please don’t tell me now : )
