    I'm trying to migrate a simple 3.7 website that has master page templates and it doesn't move over image controls, the search control or my navigation controls.

    The following errors appear when I view the pages:

    Here is the Search box error:
    Error migrating control of type Telerik.Search.WebControls.SearchBox, Telerik.Search, Version=3.7.2057.2, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=dfeaee0e3978ac79 - not supported

    Here is the Navigation error:
    Error adding ~/Sitefinity/UserControls/Navigation35/SiteMenu.ascx to placeholder navigationLinks
    Error message: c:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Sitefinity 4.0\Projects\\Sitefinity\UserControls\Navigation35\SiteMenu.ascx(7): error CS1061: 'ASP.sitefinity_usercontrols_navigation35_sitemenu_ascx' does not contain a definition for 'RadMenu1_ItemDataBound' and no extension method 'RadMenu1_ItemDataBound' accepting a first argument of type 'ASP.sitefinity_usercontrols_navigation35_sitemenu_ascx' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

    Here is the Image Control Error:
    Error migrating control of type Telerik.Cms.Engine.WebControls.SitefinityImage, Telerik.Cms.Engine, Version=3.7.2096.2, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=dfeaee0e3978ac79 - not supported

    I followed the migration steps carefully and even just redid everything with the latest.

    Do I really need to fix every page or did I do something wrong.

    Hello Greg Woodard,

    Unfortunately Sitefinity 4.0 does not support search controls out of the box, so there is no way to migrate it. The navigation control appears to have some custom code that uses old Sitefinity 3.7 API, that is completely incompatible with 4.0, so you should rewrite it and add it manually.

    As for the SitefinityImage support for it will be added in the next version of the migration tool (0.7).
