    Migrating Nested Content to 7.7


    I'm upgrading a project that is running on an older version of Umbraco and I was using Nested Content from the 3rd party package. Now that Umbraco 7.7 ships with a "core" version of Nested Content what is the best way to migrate?

    • shall I just change property editor in my data types?
    • or shall I upgrade the nuget package of our.umbraco.nestedcontent to the latest version and keep it as external assembly?

    Thx Simone

    Hi Simone,

    By changing the property-editor in your data-types will wipe out the prevalue data for that data-type - this is by design in Umbraco core - as typically changing a property-editor wouldn't have the same required prevalues, I digress.

    Ultimately the main difference between the package and Umbraco core version is the property-editor alias, so if you wanted to brave a direct SQL update, you could try this...

        propertyEditorAlias = 'Umbraco.NestedContent'
        propertyEditorAlias = 'Our.Umbraco.NestedContent'

    Of course, usual database backups apply, etc.

    I'd posted that SQL statement on another topic, a while back;

    Once it's swapped over, you're okay to remove the package version of NC (DLL and App_Plugins files).

    - Lee

    Thanks for this Lee, renaming worked. Just ran into this with an upgrade from the mid-7 range. Note that you need to also touch the web.config file as well (or at least I did) to close the loop.
