I am copying the content from my old non-CMS (Weebly) website to my new Drupal website by manually filling in node forms and comment forms. I would like to recreate all the original authors and posting times on the new website. As a first step, I have created a user account for all the people who contributed to the old website.
Adding nodes works perfectly: as an administrator, I can post new nodes as another user and change the posting time before publishing.
Now, I would also like to add new comments, and change the author and date before posting. I know that one can administrate a comment after posting it, as shown in the screenshot below.
However, it is vital that the desired changes are made before posting comments, since publishing triggers multiple Rules, related to User Points, Flags etc. Otherwise, the wrong users are rewarded User Points, for example.
How can I do that?
