    I think the best approach is to write a php script that inserts the new rows of data above the existing ones for each table but with the index values increased so they stack up on top of the existing data rows.

    If you don't know what I am talking about you probably need to visit rent a coder or a similar site.

    Of course back up your existing data before trying any of this.

    Just some ideas off the top of my head.

  3. yayks! i dont have much to pay for a coder how much would it cost?

    i'm thinking if i''ll just install another wp and insert the database to it, then manually copy-paste its content to the wp site i'm concentrating. what dyou think?

    I'm not sure that I completely understand your requirement?

    I've merged a lot of Wordpress blogs.

    In your Wordpress Admin Control Panel, go to the Tools Menu and choose the Import option.

    You will need a Wordpress WXR database dump from the old site. If you have only a MySQL database dump, you will need to install it into a Wordpress blog so you can export it as a WXR file.

    I just learned something new. I didn't know that this feature was built into WordPress. Thank you, oh wise one!
