    Hi -

    I'm working on upgradiung our site from DNN 9.1.1 to 9.2.2 (and eventually to 9.3.2) (using a test website)

    I have several pages using the Links module version 4.0.1 . I made a successful DNN Upgrade to 9.2.2, but Links failed. I removed the Links folder from Desktop Modules, browsed the website, and installed Links version 6.02.03, but Links still doesn't work on the site.

    Does anyone know whether Links version 6.02.03 works with DNN 9.2.2 and above

      Update - I found there is a newer version of Links 7.0.1. I installed it, but my instances of Links are still not working

        Another update -
        It looks as though I can re-make new instances of Links module - using version 7.0.1 on DNN 9.2.2
        Is it possible to keep the old instances?

          You would need to install the upgraded module BEFORE doing the upgrade. Removing data or the module before doing the upgrade won't preserve data.

            I upgraded to Links 7.0.1 before upgrading DNN, but I still get the errors (running on a test website). Same issue. I can make new instances, but all my existing instances are broken. (They are all in dropdown mode) Would be nice not to have to re-create them all after upgrading the module

            Here's the error log - there are two errors thrown for each instance of Links
