Re: A project I've been putting off - ICMS 1.2.x to 1.3.x

I'll have a look if I can find the migration script we had for the imblogging module, I think it could be useful for moving over the original news to the new news module by @madfish.

The permissions in the IPF modules until now have been handled exclusively in the 'groups' section of the system module, and there is no permissions handling done anymore in the module itself. That is a part that would be missing right now.

I did a similar move more or less a year ago when we migrated the ImpressCMS site from multiple versions to 1.3. Some modules were no longer available in 1.3, so we had to reconfigure everything from scratch, and we also did a few SQL-based custom written migrations. 

As far as I know, no module out there has 'import' functionality so you might need to write your converters on your own. Having a framework (à la Drupal Migrate) that offers a standard way of doing this would be a major positive point for a future version I believe.

Moving from CBB to iForum is easy : the table structure is the same, and the URL structure is the same. If you move the attachment files into the iForum upload folder, you should be OK.


A project I've been putting off - ICMS 1.2.x to 1.3.x

Key modules

  • News (original InstantZero module)
  • Forum (CBB vintage)

I do use group permissions for news categories - not everyone can see every category of news. The same is true of the forum, as well. Being able to assign permissions based on group and category is pretty crucial in a lot of sites, IMO.

Modules that were built on the newer code base of ImpressCMS don't seem to have this feature - or am I wrong? I am also wondering about migrating data - do the modules account for the move from old code base to the new code base, or will I be working out my own data migration?

Also - has anyone gone from 1.2.x to the latest 1.3.x? Are there midpoints that are best handled in steps?
