    Calendar Announcements Link to this post

    I'm gingerly re-creating my website from ver 2.3.8 to ver 2.4.2. Mostly it's going well (I tried a straight upgrade but ran into too many things that didn't work right, so now I'm doing it little by little so I can identify what I need to correct), and I installed the svn event_calendar and the dataobject_manager, so now the event calendar works, but I'm now wondering, is there a way to import all of our Announcements from the ver 2.3.8 site into the calendar on the 2.4.2 site (they're pointed to different databases, if I need to mention that). I'm not thrilled with the thought of re-entering all of the announcements.

    Thank you!

    Do you have a database tool you can use to export and import those records? Shouldn't be too complicated.

    Yes, I've actually imported some data from a few tables exporting and importing using PhPMyAdmin, such as my users and the security items. I just don't know which table/records the Announcements are found in.

    Pretty straightforward.. They're all in the CalendarDateTime table with "is_announcement" set to 1, and CalendarID = the calendar page id.

    It's the Calendar ID. It's different from one database to the other. Thanks!
