UPGRADING FROM VERSION 1.0
We've tried to make the upgrading
process as painless as possible but that's not an easy task so there
is a bit of work involved. The good news is that you don't have to
touch the database. The best way to accomplish this is to rebuild
the site using as many old pages as possible. I'll try to
walk you through the process step by step but you can use your own judgment
when you know what you want to do.
1. Lets start by unzipping
the app into a fresh new directory. Then lets take your old database
and replace the new one with it.
2. The structure of the default pages has not changed but all
the second level pages that display categories and links must have
the word 'default' in their names. If they don't have 'default' in
the names then aleza will consider the directory to be a link. If
you have display pages with different names you will have to change
them and also change the display page fields in the navigator.
3. The link templates have changed a bit but if it would be
difficult to reproduce the template then you can open the new and
old side by side and just apply the new code at the top and
variables to your new design.
4. Don't try to keep the old catlist.asp or aleza windows
files because they use the language files extensively which means
that you will have to redesign them in different ways but on the
other hand updates will be a snap when the time comes.
- You can add the catlist-b.asp
include file to your second level display pages, it will display
all the sibling categories.
If you have any major upgrade issues please post them at myAleza.com.
