Switching from PS2 to PS3

I've followed all the instructions on how to switch. I uploaded the PS3 directory and did all of the switching of the database and stuff. Is there an efficient way to get all of the old pages into the new directory without messing up all the links and such? I know that it says to copy and paste the images folder into the new directory, but what about all the old .php pages and templates? Any help would be appreciated...thanks

We don't really recommend replacing the PowerStore 2 files with the PowerStore 3 files because you will lose a great deal of new functionality added in PowerStore 3.

For example, all the front-end pages for PowerStore 3 have some degree of content management added to them and the Home page contains a great deal more dynamic functionality than before.

If you added a lot of your own custom code to the PowerStore 2 pages, you may be better off simply copying the custom content to the new pages manually. That way, you can retain the new features.

With that said, the file names for the front-end pages are pretty much all the same, so you could simply replace those as well, and the links should still work in most cases. However, for the Admin pages, there are probably too many changes and additions for this to really work properly.

Makes sense...so if I copy over forms from one php to another will that cause problems. I just want to make sure that all the links to files like CSSMenuWriter and FormBuilder aren't corrupted or missing. Do I need to create all new forms for contact and submission pages? ...thanks for the help

yes, you would be better of re creating the forms than trying to copy them over.
