I already submitted a support ticket, but I thought I'd post here as well, in hopes of getting responses faster. I was really hoping to get through migration this week, because there isn't a lot of website use due to holidays.
So, I'm trying to migrate from 3.7 SP4 ASP.NET 4.0 to version 4.4, using Migration Tool. I'm following instructions found on http://www.sitefinity.com/blogs/joshmorales/posts/11-11-22/migrating_sitefinity_3_to_4_deep_dive_preparation.aspx
Having trouble with master pages. Getting errors such as this one:
""Registering template "MyTemplate"...
Error: template MyTemplate failed to
migrate. The related master page ~\/App_Master\/MyTemplate.master failed to
This happens for each master page, except for one. We have nested
master pages in the 3.7 site. The problem seems to be related to the
nesting, since the only master page that doesn't error out is the one
that IS NOT tied to any other master page. The structure of the 3.7
site is like this:
- Basic.master (standalone master page - does not inherit from anything)
- MyTemplate.master (inherits from Site.master)
- etc. (other master pages inheriting from Site.master)
When migrating to 4.4, i copied the Site.master file and the App_Master
folder into the root of the 4.4 site (same relation to root as in 3.7
site). When running migration tool, I get the errors described above.
I tried moving the Site.master into the App_Master subfolder and changed
the relative path in child master pages to reflect this. I also
removed the code-behind from the Site.master page, just to eliminate it
for troubleshooting. No luck.
Any thoughts? Anybody have issues with nested master pages?
