This question already has an answer here:

I had posted a question on https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/ about a wordpress question.I I did't get answer for that. Because the users are less compare to Stack Overflow.

If I put my question on Stack Overflow I think I will get better answers within less time. I think its good idea to ask the question again on Stack Overflow. So I want to import that question to Stack Overflow. Anyway to do that ? Any Ideas?

  • @Yannis Whatever be the question I need to import to stackoverflow – Vinod VT Oct 24 '13 at 7:20
  • @VinodVT Well, if the question is off topic for Stack Overflow, you won't get any answers there either. – yannis Oct 24 '13 at 7:21
  • @Yannis Leave that question. If I ask a good question on any of the stockexchange site like wordpress questions how to import that? – Vinod VT Oct 24 '13 at 7:23

    @VinodVT If it was closed without answers, you can simply delete it and then re-post it on Stack Overflow. If it got any answers, then you can flag it for moderation attention and ask the moderators to move it for you. – yannis Oct 24 '13 at 7:24
  • @Yannis A moderator can move that questions? – Vinod VT Oct 24 '13 at 7:25

    If they agree with you that the question is on topic on the site you want it moved, sure. – yannis Oct 24 '13 at 7:27

    @Yannis Post an answer containing the substance of your comments? – Duncan Jones Oct 24 '13 at 7:30
  • @Yannis hurry up if you plan to post answer, this one going to get closed soon. – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Oct 24 '13 at 8:09
  • @DuncanJones Go for it, I'm on my phone and can't really type a full answer in my tiny screen (tiny in comparison with my fat fingers). – yannis Oct 24 '13 at 8:15

As explained by Yannis in the comments, if you think your question is a candidate for migration you can approach this in two ways:

  1. You can delete the question and post the same question on Stack Overflow. There are rules determining when you can delete your own question, which are discussed here.

  2. If you cannot delete your question, you can flag the question for moderator attention and they might migrate the question for you, depending upon whether they agree it is a good candidate for the other site.
