    Morning,

    I am having issues migrating from 3.7 to 5. I've done all the step, and everythign seems to migrate over properly except for my Templates. The error I get is that it cannot load master file. I've read that there's code issues going from 3.7 to 5, but I can 't seem to figure out why. I've attached the code for opinions. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Chris, are there any errors reported in the migration log or Sitefinity error log of either site (in the app_data folder)?

    Also, have you copied the actual files from the 3.7 website into your new Sitefinity 5 website? the files are not copied by the migration tool, and need to be manually copied over.

    The only other thing I can see perhaps is the Resources used for some of the text labels. Can you try removing these for the migration and adding them back again?

    hope this is helpful!

    The only error I get is that the related master page failed to load.

    I've moved over all the files properly, and I will try removing the resources here shortly and see where that gets me.

    *UPDATE*

    I've deleted all the resource lines and it migrates properly. The only problem is the page looks like junk and I need those resources to funtion properly.

    How can I fix this issue? Why does 3.7 allow these lines of code, but 5.0 doesn't?
