Test DN8 before upgrading all sites?

Does anyone know if there is a way to test the functionality of DN8 on one site before clicking the upgrade button for all sites?

Not within your own system but you can create an affiliate store on our demo system demo.deconetwork.com/ This will allow you to play with the new page editor. You can then upgrade your system and apply that knowledge and experience when building out your own sites.

How long do we have to transition to DN8 (i.e. will our current 7.x site be auto switched to 8 at some point?)

Hey Mark that was a typo, no site will change functionality unless you select a new DN8 template...

At some point we will upgrade all systems to DecoNetwork 8 but the same will apply, no site will change functionality unless manually switched to a DecoNetwork 8 template. The process is manual as it requires re-doing the website layout using new tools so not something that will be made automatic.

So when you upgrade all systems to DN8 then we will not be able to change our 7.x sites - only upgrade to 8? If so, do you know about how long that will be until that happens?

Hey Mark, you will still be able to change your sites using a 7.5 theme. Process will look something like.

Your system is upgraded to DN8

Nothing changes, you can still use the old Website Pages editor on all your sites
If you choose, you can change any of your sites to a new 8 theme
Once a site is changed to the new theme and the new site is published it will replace the old site

The process of changing to a new 8 theme would be done on a site by site basis.

Our video does a walkthrough on how it works:


I hope this clarifies it for you.

Thanks Cris. I guess I was confused by the post linked below, which made it sound like once we upgrade to DN8, all editing functionality for all of our 7.5 sites stops.
