Portal theme Migration from Ep 6.0 to EP 7.0

Hi Guys,

We have upgraded a server from EP 6.0 to EP 7.0.

Now there are some themes in EP6.0 environment that i need in EP 7.0.

Can you suggest how can i import these themes in EP 7.0?

Can i use normal Import export approach?

System administration ->potal display-> theme editor-> import/export

or should i use theme archieve import export approach.

system administration -> Portal Display -> Theme archieve -> import / export?

By the way my EP 6.0 version is : 6.40 SP16

and EP 7.0 version is : 7.00 SP14

Regards,

Ashish Shah

    try with theme editor -> import and export

    This would have happened because of version mismatch. The standard themes will be automatically updated but the custom theme is of older version. It is better to recreate the theme.

    you have to export themes to a zip file and then import this exported theme into the target portal.

    I hope you should redesign the old custom themes as they may not work peoperly due to version mismatch.

    Hi,

    Export your theme from EP6.0 using System administration -> Portal Display -> Theme archieve -> Export Theme. After migration, import your theme in EP7.0 using System administration -> Portal Display -> Theme Transport -> Import Theme.

    • Thanks guys,

      I have imported the theme in EP 7.0 now,

      as pointed out by you guys some of the UI elements do not have the same look and feel.

      i guess i need to recreate the theme.

      I guess many of the things are same , only minor changes required.

      can i use the downloaded zip file from EP6.0 to change the theme in EP 7.0?
