Upgrade: Coming Sooner Than I Thought
Well, it's been a couple of hours since I said I might get the upgrade to CS 2.1 done over the next couple of weeks.
Then I started looking at what I'd need to do to merge in my old changes with the new code base. Luckily, I've already been documenting my changes under my Community Server category.
Working backwards through the list, it seems I won't have much to do :)
- How I Managed To Stay Logged In. This one has already been taken care of out of the box.
- Listing All The Blogs On The Main Page. While the skin mod was still necessary (and done on my local site), the code-behind fixes that I needed to do to make it work were already done for me. Back when I made this mod, my wife asked if I could also show that control on the default front page to the site - I've done that too. A slight code change was needed in the Page_Load event of the root Default.aspx file, but that's because I remove the forum controls that were there (I don't even have forums enabled anyway :)
- Remembering Your Comments. This I had to apply again - but really, no big deal to do - I documented it well enough that I followed it and had it done in about 30 seconds.
- Searching The Goblin. Since this info was stored in the database, it's still there post-upgrade. You can discover the search provider in IE7 without me doing anything new :)
- Maintenance Updates. Fixed out of the box.
- Another CS Module Added. Now provided out of the box.
- Adding an Image to a Community Server RSS Feed. This was a custom change, and it needed to be done again. The only different is that I added the textbox to a different page in the control panel (the syndication options).
- In-Line File Uploads (and Update). This one will need a little bit of work. They've redone how the tabs work (they've made it simpler) - so I need to redefine how my tab gets added, and check if the array indexes will still cause things to screw up.
So that last one is the only one I need to worry about now. Maybe tomorrow - it's time for bed. But things are looking hopeful :)
