Blog migration to SharePoint 2013 - Part 1


I’ve been working during my spare time on upgrading our environments (intranet, extranet, blogs) to a brand new SharePoint 2013 platform. For the blogs this means I have to DBATTACH my content from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010, and then from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013. I’m also running CKS:EBE, a really cool community addon for SharePoint to give you just that extra (pretty urls, CAPTCHA, Modular Theme Framework, and the likes).

First I want to see how my content migrates between the different environments.

Note that the above screens were taken using a backup of my blog data from a few weeks ago, so some newer comments and posts aren’t showing.

Result

The result is what you might expect from a DBATTACH upgrade, a full fidelity upgrade.

Next step will be to upgrade the CKS:EBE code. I might decide to create a light version with just the functionality that I’m using on my blog.

Stay tuned!

The interface in SharePoint 2013 is obviously a lot neater. The upgrade process can be a challenge, but it is worth it in the end as SharePoint 2013 has some great features that are very useful when creating/sharing content.
