Upgraded fine, and so far everything seems to be working, including the mentioned plugins NavEE, SwitchEE, SEO Lite
However, all of these projects seem dead now… I wondered if people have replacements they suggest, or anything with data migration?
It is not a big site, so manually changing can be done, but would prefer not to! Any advice appreciated.
Thanks for getting in touch about this.
It looks like NavEE has been updated to support EE 6.x https://devot-ee.com/add-ons/navee
SwitchEE looks like it was updated in the repo to support EE 5.x after a quick peek at the code I don’t see anything that would stop it from working in version 6.
On SEO Lite, you can import that data into SEEO https://eeharbor.com/seeo
Theres also a new version of sorts for SEO Lite. https://expressionengine.com/add-ons/seo-lite-v2 My understanding is that you can’t upgrade directly to it, however I believe there was some discussion around this in slack earlier this week, and it sounds like it can be done with a fairly minimal lift. https://eecms.slack.com/archives/C04CUNNR9/p1641854496036600
I hope this is helpful!
Thanks for update. Their (the outfit, Navee) site only states EE3 support! Weird!
SeoLite I just saw a post on github for SEOlite V2 that stats upgrades / imports will be coming soon. That was Dec 2021. I’ll look at the other.
Minor plugin like switchee I am not too concerned about. They were minimally used, so might remove. But yes they appear to still work.
Thanks for the reply. N
So many new posts in the past months from people that want to upgrade or are upgrading from older versions makes me very happy. It means EE is growing again 😍
As for previous older add-ons, if they are working in the latest release, I would not be too worried about them in case some are left to die by the original developers. The new owners, Packet Tide made the right decision by releasing version 6 as a Long Term Release, which means it will be supported for many years to come, and you don’t need to find a replacement for the outdated add-ons anytime soon as long.
