2002-06-24 SiteLite 3.0 released for betatesting.


SiteLite 3.0 offers an automatic upgrade of your site from version 2.0. When SiteLite reads a script without the line: SITEVERSION=3, it assumes that the script is a description of a site built with version 2. SiteLite inspects and attempts to update all templates and all blocks in the site, in addition to the script itself. SiteLite does not do anything with the style sheet file during update.

It is a good idea to make a backup copy of the site before you allow an automatic update.

Note the following:

  1. The C-type template is abandoned. P-type is used in stead. You may want to introduce the C-type template by a ATEMPLATE-line in the script, or put the FULLTOC-element in the block.

  2. Investigate the templates, and pay special attention to the SL_PREV,SL_NEXT,SL_HOME elements. The structure has changed and SiteLite does not convert this. Make a new site and inspect the "standard" templates to learn how to.

  3. Investigate the stylesheet, and make sure you have all the hardcoded styles present. Make a new site and inspect the "standard" def.css file to check.
