Is there a way to know if code written in the old CCS plugin will work properly in L&L? I have some complicated sites, some that use external template files that are included in posts, and I want to make sure everything will work.
Hi Philip, thank you for the question.
Unfortunately, all CCS shortcodes will need to be converted to equivalent L&L tags, and placed in a template post. The only shortcode that L&L implements is
[template] to load a template post.
It was a necessary design decision, to create the new template system free from the limitations of shortcodes - but it’s too bad that the migration will require manual effort.
The two plugins can co-exist, so I would recommend installing L&L and gradually convert existing use of shortcodes. If you need any help or have questions, I’ll be happy to help in the forums.
Perhaps a guide to transitioning from CCS to L&L would be helpful?
The question for me now is how to identify all the pages containing CCS code to be converted in a site…
Have a look at this plugin, it found all my CCS shortcodes when I tested it out.
Yes, great, thanks for sharing!
