Instructions & Examples of Personal vs. Community Blogs & Documents

If your blog or document was created in a Community area and appears under the "blogs" or "documents" heading from that area:

example2.PNG

You don't have to do anything. Those blogs and documents will be converted to discussions.

If your blog or document was created as part of your profile and appears under the "blogs" or "documents" section of your profile:

You must recreate them as documents in this area as blogs or documents that were created as part of a profile WILL NOT be included in our migration.

To create a new document:

Click here:

Click "start a new discussion" and copy your blog or document to that new discussion.

For multiple blog entries or documents, we suggest creating a new discussion for EACH entry or each document.

Once this is complete, those blog entries and documents will be included in the migration.

Best,

Jim

    Yes, since your blog was posted in a profile area and not a part of a dedicated community, in order to preserve the data, you must either:

    1) Create a new message in this area ( and click "Start a New Discussion") for the first entry of your blog and put the rest of the entries as replies to that post.

    or:

    2) Create a new message in this area ( and click "Start a New Discussion") for each individual blog post. Each entry will receive an individual URL this way.

    Best,

    For me it is surely a time consuming task as i have 36 blog posts

    But will do it to avoid loosing them.

    Found this "Instructions" only today.

    Thank you for publishing.

    Followed the steps.

    Tags could not be simply copy-pasted.

    Tags could not be copied in as a comma separated line.

    Had to edit them separate and then paste one by one.

    It looks like an attached file needs to be downloaded first and then uploaded to its new location.
