DotNetNuke 5 upgradeBy Benjamin Howarth on
SO I finally took the plunge and upgraded to DotNetNuke 5.00.01 beta on my live website.
Having create a staging site and then tested the upgrade in a protected environment, I discovered a few things had changed since version 4.9:
- New container/skin architecture that inherits from the improved and re-organised DotNetNuke.UI namespace;
- Successfully breaking the administrative SolPartMenus for the blog module... lol.
Apart from that, upgrade went fairly smoothly There were some major hiccups, but these were caused by my failure to realise that I needed to upgrade Bruce Chapman’s iFinity Friendly URL Provider to the latest version. Skins have been updated too and a minimum of two sites will be going live this week!
