    Data Import V8

    Hi!

    We have a fairly simple database with news item linked to authors in SQL. We want to fill our new umbraco(v8) project with this data. To the appropriate doctypes ofcourse.(News/Authors)

    How would we go about it to migrate this data?

    Thanks!

    What I have done before, is to just fill in some code (maybe in a surface controller), and just do the import by calling the content service.

    Depending on the size of your source, it may be good to be able to do the import in steps/chunks to enable you to restart / continue the import if something fails.

    Think summer-ish It's a rewrite since it still used webforms

    Hi Richard

    Just want to know if the update for Umbraco 8 is near? I have a larger site that I need to move from another CMS to Umbraco, so if the update is just around the corner I might as well wait. :)

    Best regards Jonas

    Hi Jonas,

    Working hard on this version. Must be done soon. Umbraco Dataprovider is the most difficult provider to convert so could be a little bit after the initial release.

    Best,

    Richard
