    Migrated from v5 to v4

    Hello

    Just thought it would nice to share with the Umbraco community our progress over the last few months.

    A bit of info first - shropshire.gov.uk is the online home of a local authority in England (Shropshire Council). Since the start of 2012 we have been working to replace our existing CMS (and content) with a new fresh face and back in April we launched the prototype site http://new.shropshire.gov.uk/beta/libraries (still active)

    Umbraco was chosen as the replacement CMS, however being new to Umbraco, we dived straight into v5 and of course ran into the troubles that are now well known. But since then we have been working hard to rebuild the v5 prototype into a v4 release platform.

    This week we have been able make the new v4 site live (over time we will be adding more service areas as more content migrates from our old CMS), so please feel free to take a peek:

    http://new.shropshire.gov.uk/

    There is still plently to do on the new site but would also just like to take the opportunity to say thanks to the community for plugin resources we have used as well as general help in the forums.

     

    Cheers

    Hi SC,

    Which version is that now running on? And did you successfully migrate the MVC components across?

    Thanks

    Kev

    We are currently running on v4.9.0, but have plans to move to v4.11.1 ASAP.  With the roll-back from v5 we took the opportunity to revisit the site markup and develop some custom property editors to give us some more adaptable data types, so we essentially rebuilt the site rather than trying to migrate what we had.
