    Update Obsolete Property Editors

    Umbraco 7.15.5

    I have noticed that a number of our DataTypes are using obsolete Property Editors. While the editors still work and the site functions OK, the obsolete versions, or some of them at least, appear to be causing problems with Courier.

    I am still investigating but it appears as though the data stored has changed for the new editor versions, so I assume I somehow need to update the existing content. I assume just changing the Property Editor of a DataType will NOT update the data stored?

    This is the list of obsolete Property Editors we are using:

    • (Obsolete) Nested Content
    • (Obsolete) Media Picker
    • (Obsolete) Content Picker
    • (Obsolete) Member Picker
    • (Obsolete) Multinode Treepicker
    • (Obsolete) Related Links

    Any comments regarding these editors? Has anyone gone through this process already and if so, how did you do it?

    I've seen this which is all about the change made to these editors, however it doesn't deal with the conversion / upgrade process or options at all :-(

    I've searched this forum (and Google) but can't find anything helpful.

    I know this is close to a year old - but I have a large website that uses all of these obsolete editors. I tested changing them to their non-obsolete counterparts but it doesn't look like the data is automatically adjusted.

    I'm wondering if someone has an Umbraco package or sql script or anything to help transpose these property values?

    Hi Mark

    You can use Proworks' Our.Umbraco.Migration package ( for this, usage is described in their v8 migration blog post Look for the step by step section, and then the description is in step 4.
