What about working on a website built in FP2000 in FP2003?
Just looking for bugs. I've read many threads about the improvements, which is why I'm migrating.
Thanks for any help.
OBTW - Kudos to pageoneresults. Having spent time discussing MSFP with him at the recent PubCon LV I have to say WOW. I mean that. WOW. So very kind of you to take the time to share your depth of knowledge.
In terms of compatibility issues I can't say that I've witnessed many that stick out as being major. I'm able to open backup archive webs of projects I made with FP2K and I don't seem to have any problems with basic functionality. I think you would have more problems working with webs created in FP2003 and trying to open them in FP2K. Backward compatibility shouldn't be a major issue.
The only significant issue I had was converting Shared Borders to Dynamic Web Templates. Not difficult, just a bit awkward and required some cleaning up. But it was well worth the trouble, the DWT is much more flexible (allows multiple templates per site, something that Shared Borders didn't do well).
All in all, I'd make the change again.
