Moving from Evoq to Community

New Around Here

    Hello everyone,

    My company is looking to move away from paying for DNN Evoq version due to the lack of support and constantly slow to load Liquid Content editor.  From some research I've done, most of the Liquid Content functionality can be replaced with extension like 2sxc.  

    Does anyone here have any experience or insight regarding the process of moving all of our Liquid Contents to a something like 2sxc and switching version from Evoq to Community?  What are the approximate process and timeframe that we should plan for to complete this process?  

    Would we be better off creating a new installation and export our sites to it or is it manageable enough to just work with our existing installation?  Our site is hosted on Azure Webapps.

    Anything we need to be aware of before we move to the community edition? Like features that we may lose beside Liquid Contents that I may not be aware of?

    I believe our renewal is coming in 4 months and my manager is asking whether we should renew this for another year or if that's enough time to transition to community,

      First, there are a lot of us that have performed Evoq to DNN Platform migrations over the years.  Getting ahead of your renewal is key.  With 4 months left,  you don't have a lot of time left to select a vendor and/or plan the migration to avoid the renewal.  So, it's great that you're looking into this now.  I'd recommend following that link to find and interview the vendor(s) you think you may match up with.   (We're one of them, of course, but you should still go through the process to find the best fit for your organization.)  

      You're correct that there are various options in the DNN ecosystem that can replace features in Evoq.  Structured content is one of them.  Most agencies in the ecosystem can do this for you as well.  An evaluation should be done to fully determine how many of the Evoq features you need to replace and then get on the path toward migrating off of Evoq.  

      Outside of that, there are a ton of weird issues that occur during the migration process, but nothing that can't be resolved.  Those issues tend to be somewhat unique per website instance.
