I am trying to see if I can get an external website's user comments into a WP one. It's not an external WP site!

So I figured if I can add it manually, then I might be able to tally up the SKU codes.

I've added a row in wp_comments using the same info as other test comments. With IP and other similar info.
I've got into wp_comments_meta and put in the verified line and rating line.
But it doesn't show on the product page.

Then I go into Comments, Tap edit, and Update (no changes), and somehow that makes it live.

So is there a third area where it gets added into Wordpress's database??

Love PHP. Love CSS. Love learning new tricks too.
All the best from the United Kingdom.

Out of the box, all you need is the entry in wp_comments. It's possible you have caching that's preventing things from immediately being displayed. It's also possible that plugins you have installed have altered that behaviour.
