Text Database to q2a

asked Jan 13, 2017 in Q2A Core by ArresT

It is a complicated problem. Now, i am using a single guestbook (100.000 questions) on text database with php. Then decided that i can use q2a. So i convert datas from text-mysql to q2a database (qa_posts table) on phpmyadmin. i transfered with mysql database account (similar to q2a database). There is no problem here. I loaded. My datas are shown but i have some issues on that point.

- if i want to search any wordd on q2a's pages. It dont find anything. (I tested google search plugins. it isnt find anything too)

Thanks a lot.

Best answer

I don't exactly get what you did but most likely going to admin/stats and recalculating and reindexing stuff should solve the issue.

It is still unclear what you have done in detail. However, I don't think there is any problem with Q2A's database. It is perfectly fine to have the same table to store questions and answers it is basically a "kill the parent and keep the children" strategy resolution of the Posts, Questions, Answers and Comments hierarchy.

i guess, it is clearly that. i had a guest book with text database. i transformed it to q2a. i added the content directly into database and i added it with mysql navi.

but i worried that, what can we do to select table both Q's content and A's content "at same time" with a loop? maybe i want to use mysql database a external php without q2a pages?  

AND i learned new thing. especially thank u with ur patient. my main wish only that teaching.

thanks for all.
