Wiki and Blog Migration to SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

     

    We're planning to migrate our company wiki and blog to MS-SharePoint 2010.  Currently we're using Liferay, which is a MediaWiki platform and uses the Creole markup language.

     

    Does anyone know of any good migration tools that can migrate the above?

    Currently trying Metalogix, not having any luck.

    Thanks,

    Theo

  • I looked into this question a bit.

    LifeRay does not currently support the MetaWebLog API--that's why the Blog and Wiki migration tool does not work. None of the content is actually retrieveable because it is generated by the server-side script and that's why a website migration tool doesn't work either.

  • Hi, I already tried thr Metalogix.  Was ion the phone with thteir support for over an hour, couldn't get it to work.  The problem was that our Liferay wiki is all server-side php scripts, whcih their web tool can't crawl.

    Too bad, it otherwise looks like cool tool.  Going to try the AvePoint product next, hopefully some success with that.

    Thanks,

    Theo

  • You'll find the same problem. If a UI requires human interaction (e.g., clicking a link that then dynamically assembles the URL server-side), migration tools will not work. This is commonly associated with websites that use Java interfaces to run server-side code instead of displaying links when the page is assembled.

    Blogs and wikis built using standard interfaces should work.
