I've been migrating a site to a new domain. The site itself is pretty straightforward (it uses Jekyll), and everything has gone fine -- except migration of Disqus threads.

I've had partial success -- some of the threads have migrated successfully, but not all.

I've tried the domain migration wizard (which caught a few), the URL mapper (which caught a few), and the 301 redirect crawler (which caught a few). But the remaining threads just won't move, no matter which method I use.

So, I suppose I suppose I'm asking if there are any "gotchas" I should know about with this. When you execute any of these migration tools, it says it will "take awhile." Does that mean hours? Days? I can't tell if it's working, and there's no logging or error reporting that I can see.

The URL mapper you used, is that the CSV export of the comment treads to map to the new URLs? –  Anagio Oct 21 '12 at 9:48

I've used the domain migration wizard a few times. The process went smoothly. What got me the first time was that the data didn't transfer immediately, and I assumed it didn't work. Give it a few minutes. Also, make sure you have your data backed up first!
