Moving site/list data from templates to definitions

  Asked By: Devika    Date: Nov 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1439

On our SharePoint server, we had created several sites based on
site/list templates. Later on, we decided to use customized site/list
definitions (using the onet.xml, schema.xml, ...) for all new sites and

Now we would like to move the old sites (created with templates) to new
sites (using definitions). Is there any way to do this? We basically
need to copy all the data from the old sites to the new sites, and
ensure the new sites were created from the definitions.

Crete the new site using your definition/template. Create the appropriate libraries and lists. Open both sites  in searate browsers. Go to each library on each site and use Explorer View. Then you should be able to drag and drop. As for the lists, AFAIK you'll have to open each item and copy  and pasted into the new list.
