What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

Before wordpress.stackexchange.com/ was created, a lot of WordPress questions were asked on SO. Are these going to be migrated, or are they going to stay in SO?

A good example is this question:

Make *ALL* Wordpress Categories use their Parent Category Template

Also, if a question is migrated to another site, what happens to the reputation gained from it?

I can't comment for the specific issue of Wordpress alone, but in general take some precautions when migrating old questions to the Stack Exchange 2.0 sites. You don't want to overwhelm all of their new content with a whole bunch of old, solved content. To address your final point, "Reputation is not migrated between sites". –  Grace Note Feb 2 '11 at 14:55
    
Ok. Do migrated questions still keep the old timestamp, or do they jump to the front of the queue? If they keep the original timestamp, I don't see why there would be a large problem. –  danixd Feb 2 '11 at 15:04

Just to reiterate what @Grace said. They will appear on the front page of recent questions. Plus there's very little point migrating old content - there's a good chance you'll be creating a duplicate on the target site. –  ChrisF Feb 2 '11 at 15:27

Stack Overflow and the TeX SE site went through this exact debate not too long ago. See this question from after TeX SE got on its feet, and this one from before TeX SE was up and running that got updated recently. –  Pops Feb 2 '11 at 15:35
