How To Upgrade ArticleMs 1.3 Skin to ArticleMs 2.0

I know, you want upgrade your articlems 1.3 directory to the new and much more performing articlems 2.0. So you are thinking how i can do that without loosing everything. I suggest you to create another folder and upload there the new articlems 2.0 script. So you'll be able to test and look at all the differences between the old and the new.

Now you have your new installation and have seen all the differences. So you want to know how you can use your 1.3 skin to the new 2.0 . You think , it'll be easy... i can upgrade the old skin using the upgrade feature that i have found in the new release. Well... the upgrade feature work only to upgrade the Default skin. If you have another skin purchased somewhere or created by you, you cannot upgrade it. Or at least not yet. Maybe in the future....

The way i suggest is the following.

First create a new skin based on the default skin.

In the new articlems 2 installation go to Manage Skins -- andgt; Create New Skins

Put a name in the field and click the button. You'll see something like this below:

Create Skin

Create new skin named BlueSky based on Default and click CREATE

After that go to Templates -- and select the new skin

At this point you must copy and past the code from each block from your 1.3 skin to the same block in the new 2.0 skin.

This will take a while and you must pay attention becouse the new code is different and you must not ovewrite all but only the layout part.

When you have completed, you can see if all the site with the new skin work fine.

Then you must EXPORT the skin and save it to your PC.

Now you can upgrade your articlems 1.3 to 2.0. Simply follow the instruction you have found in the folder. When you have your site upgraded to ams 2.0 you can upload your skin and install it.

I know, it sounds a lot of work to do. But if you want , we can do that for you for a small fee.andnbsp; Only Euro 15 .
