In the first two posts, we'll explain analysis and planning, both necessary theoretical groundwork. After that, we will cover the practical part with configurations and migration of records.
Different solutions to migrate existing content element records.
We'll show you how to assign new backend fields purposefully and how to extend container elements for our needs.
You can work with the Gridelements extension in very different ways. Therefore, you first need an overview of the elements present in the project, as well as their configuration. But also a clear plan for the migration of existing data sets is helpful.
This is the first part of a small blog series in which we want to show you our switch from Gridelements to containers and custom content elements. It's not about badmouthing a long proven extension, but about learning from past mistakes when using it.
