      Description

      SUMMARY

      Testing link migration involves all 4 methods of re-using content: 1) Re-using materials during site creation; 2) Duplicating a site; 3) creating a new site, then using Import from Site > Merge; and 4) creating a new site, then using Import from Site > Replace.

      When testing link migration in the Forums tool, the following problems with the 2 Importing from Site options were identified:

      • Import > Merge: LINKS WITHIN FORUMS DO NOT MIGRATE - STILL POINT TO ITEMS IN ORIGINATING SITE
      • Import > Replace: LINKS WITHIN FORUMS DO NOT MIGRATE - STILL POINT TO ITEMS IN ORIGINATING SITE

      Links migrated as expected when Re-using materials or Duplicating a site (test results details below).

      TESTING DETAILS

      "Applies to links to assignments, forums, resources, and quizzes embedded in forum/topic long descriptions in originating site and assumes linked assn/forum has been posted in new site(s), i.e., it is no longer in Draft mode; conversations are not copied forward:
