Migrating Ublogsy to Umbraco 6

February 07, 2014

Anthony Dang, from Umbraco Gold Partner: The Cogworks in the UK, and the man behind a ton of Umbraco packages, presented how he converted his uBlogsy package to Umbraco 6, from Umbraco 4. 

uBlogsy is simply a blog package/starter kit. Out of the box it gives you the type functionality that you expect from a blog: tagging, categorisation, comments (with spam detection), RSS, Date folders. It has widgets for showing latest posts, archive, latest comments, related posts (based on tag and category). It does filtering by author, tag, category, and of course keyword searching. And it all just works out of the box.

uBlogsy 3.0 is specifically built to work with Umbraco 6 MVC.

My session is about uBlogsy, and how I converted it to Umbraco 6. I'm going to give a step-by-step walk-through of what I did, and how you can convert V4 sites to V6.

What is the single most important point I want to get across? Porting to use one API to another is actually quite easy. Most of it just find and replace, with some clever ideas of course.
