Moving Listing from 8.9.3 to 9.2.7 – Best Options

I have cut and pasted pages, blog posts but what would be the best way to move over all the listing from 8.9.3 to 9.2.7? Would it still be cutting and pasting or has a tool finally been developed and or some clear written (not video) documentation on how to do it?

    hi Joanna

    your pages, categories etc will be saved once you install version 9. Since you wont use a different database. So no need to cut and paste or migrate pages

    Marie please go into more detail because in past forum posts it was explained that you don’t take V9 and add it to your current site but set up a staging site (new fresh install of WP and DP) and move everything over. Now how is it working? As well I noticed Listing Details in V8 are not as many as in V9 where do we upload the extra photos, or where do we put full addresses?

    hi Joanna

    you can install Version 9 with your V8 installation , it wont overwrite version 8

    to add photos , you can add them via add listing page , you will see the option to add images , you can add as many as you allow to from there

    Full address, they can be created as a custom field or you can use the Map Location field for this

    @Premiumpress Team: What happened to the statement that we should not update v8 to v9 until Mark will deliver a migration tool/plugin?

    So there is no Migration tool coming out at all then? If we could at least get that confirmation so we know where to go from here.
