She cant remember specifically as it was a few weeks ago, but certain things did not covert over to the SS4 equivalents and thus the namespaces did not get added for the new classes that were needed. She thinks maybe the Director class but ant be sure.
I have not started on the shop yet but il see if my colleague can find where it didnt work for another site.
can you give an example of where the upgrader tool fails to make changes?
well the conversion module doesnt change over everything itself so it still involves manually checking everything still works. I think most of the pain is with the shop code. It was built on an old version of the shop and im pretty sure the shop has changed since then, so I fear it will be a complete rebuild in order to use the SS4 version of the shop and then modify it to do what we want.
Are you able to elaborate on any specific pain?
that is pain enough
I still have to go from 3.7 -> 4 on 2 shop sites.....that are customised heavily 😞
Think of the poor souls who had to go from e.g. 3.1 => 4.4
