I see in the information about moving from 7.0 to 7.1 that pages and content like blog posts aren't transferable. Did you find a solution to this?

If you take a look at Squarewebsites you'll find a great product called the Tools Extension PRO that can take of this.

just adding a comment here in case someone comes up with and posts a solution to this in the future. I have a couple thousand blog posts, so for now am just staying with Squarespace 7 in hopes of a way being worked out in the future.

@sharongpastore¬†If it helps, I've used the tool¬†since Michael first developed it, and I've migrated many, many blogs from 7.0 to 7.1 without difficulty¬†ūüôā

The challenge with 7.0 to 7.1 migrations is that you won't be able to migrate the backend data, like Customers, Accounts, Subscriptions and so on.

Thanks so much, @paul2009.  When do you usually advise a client to move to 7.1?  Or when do you suggest they stay with 7.0?  It seems with Fluid Engine here, it's a good idea for a client that is looking to really update the visual aspect as well as be positioned for future updates.

In summary, there's no need for a client to move away from their v7.0 site until the day that they want to use one of the new features that are only available on v7.1. 

Brine templates on the v7.0 platform provide a rock-solid solution and will continue to do so for years to come, but the underlying v7.0 framework is becoming dated and so isn't capable of supporting many of the newer features that clients ask about.

For example, on Squarespace 7.1 you can:

  • sell up to¬†10,000¬†products on one page. You are not limited to 200 products per page.¬†
  • categorise products in¬†nested¬†categories. You are not limited to simple categories.
  • host videos natively on Squarespace and show them on video pages
  • have page sections with individual styling options
  • create a colour palette to match a brand identity and then apply it to the whole site
  • have a separate Member Area navigation
