    Use sync from Umbraco 6.1 in Umbraco 7.1

    Hi!


    Will i be able to just place my files from Umbraco 6.1 in the same folder in a Umbraco 7-install? Will that work?

    Cheers!

    you can bring the usync files from v6.1 install into v7 .except custom data types (and hence doctypes that use them) may not always work - because

    1. datatypes are diffrent in 7
    2. the IDs for anything that isn't 'standard' will not be mapped across during the import

    also - 7 does some clever caching to speed things up, so i would

    1. copy the files over from 6 to 7
    2. run the sync see if it works properly
    3. if it does, then do a full "export" (from the dashboard or by deleting the usync folder) to let v7 usync create the files.

    Hi Kevin! 

    Great! Thanks! Just tested and as you said the custom data types failed but I just removed them =D

    Great stuff!
