Upgrading content from 5.7 to 6.x


We’ve upgraded a few clients from 5.7 to 6.x without also updating the templates to velocity.

Now obviously when creating a new template in velocity it will have a new ID. Is there any way I can update the relationships so that it points at the new variant/template id without having to manually do this? This is both manual slot relationships and ephox inline links.


There 2 variant / template conversion tools.

The first one creates new Velocity template registrations to replace your old XSL variants. You then have to build the templates ourself, but at least the new templates carry forward the correct attributes.

The second tool replaces the variant ids, etc.

The process is documented in the manuals.


Specifically, see Converting to Version 6.5 Features.
