Beside writing new content for P4, some pages will be migrated from P3 to P4, according to the content audit. The migration script cannot do everything, some bits will still have to be manually corrected in production.
This is what will happen step-by-step:
Here’s a few things to be checked in the various iterations of the migration script:
The development team will focus on fixing bugs only related to content not being migrated completely (this including text, images, and pdfs) but not styling. As mentioned, the script can automate up to a certain point, after which a few inconsistencies will need manually fixing. Below, you will find help for manual fixes which might be needed.
|KEY INFO >> the migration of content does not create content exactly the same as in P3. P4 is a different system with a different theme, CSS classes and styling, therefore it is impossible with the current script to match every single piece of content of different type, for every NRO to the P4 styling.|
|KEY INFO >> FIXING migrated content will take place after the LAST script has been run, so in Planet 4 PRODUCTION|

If the migrated videos are not the recommended size, then they have to be manually removed and re-added. As a reminder, we use 16:9 aspect ratio in our video format. Try wherever possible to keep the resolution high. These are the sizes we recommend.

<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>The fundamental business model of social media companies like Facebook poses some serious concerns. Their goal is to collect as much personal information on individuals as possible and then use this information to sell highly targeted advertising to companies. Worldwide there is very little understanding of what exactly they collected, little regulation and little known about the consequences on democracy.</span>
Alongside checking the migrated content, you should start to prepare the content to be reviewed and migrated.
In the “Content Review and Migration” file (here a template), the “P4 NEW PAGES” tab will help you organize the new content you have to create.
