    The new site will have a recovery journals system. Journals will no longer be in the forums. More information here:
    What's Coming For Drugs-Forum part 3: Recovery Journals

    In short: your thread will be imported as a Journal, with Journal Entries and comments to the entries.
    If you want the posts in your recovery journal thread imported to the new system, then you need to do the following:
    Check your posts in your Journal thread and mark specific posts as a new entry. You can do this by either:

    1. Attach an image to the post. minimum size: 200x130px.
    2. Or make sure the the post is more than 500 characters.
    If you do either of this for each post that resembles a new entry then your blog will be correctly imported.
    The first method is best and easiest.

    Are there any questions?

    Do we need to mark out the replies that we would like to be added in as comments or will this happen automatically?

    Apologies if this sounds like a dumb question I would just hope to keep all the supportive comments for reference. Thank you Alfa for keeping us informed with the new website - as a member who is very fond of DF, I look forward to it.

    Any reply by you that has less than 500 characters and does not have an attachment will be imported as a comment to your Journal Entry.

    Does it have to have 'Journal' as a prefix?

    No, but it does need to be in one of the recovery journals forums.

    If anyone is wondering, this was much easier to do than i expected.I only added one picture, and it automatically went into each post, so i didnt have to do anything else.
    sounds kind of complicated, but it wasnt at all.

    took like 3 clicks to accomplish.

    The new site demo has data imported from may 2016. I will import the latest data from your journal.

    The following posts are your journal status updates without replies to other member and will not be imported as a journal entry but as a comment to one of your journal entries:

    These will not be imported as entries while they should be. This is is because these have no image and less than 500 characters. You should add an image to these posts. Even if its just the same image as in the first post of the thread.

    Please do the above ASAP. I do not know how soon I will get to the final import. You have at least one day.
