Move Legacy Local to New Local?

  • Hello,

    So do we have to recreate the local libraries we had from before, or somehow import them to the new library? I see no checkbox for Local Library under “Manage Libraries” and so are these to be created in the Appearance > Patterns or what is equal to GenerateBlocks > Local Patters?

    It would seem that a way to migrate these would be in the instructions for this before going live. I may have missed that, but see no documentation on this, just a guessing game.

  • Hi there,

    There is no need to re-create your existing local patterns, and you can still access them in GenerateBlocks > Patterns > Legacy Patterns.

    Users can continue to use them and access them in the same way for the foreseeable future.

  • Hello,

    Yes, it is true that it can be accessed, so to be clear what I am needing is to add the older Patterns to the New Pattern Library as “local” patterns.

    The only way I see it is possible to do is to manually copy the block or older pattern elements, then create a new pattern in the New Pattern Library. Is that the only way, or is there a way to export and then import to the new?

  • Yes, you will need to manually do the transfer work, unforturnaly.

    The new patterns are using WP patterns, while the legacy one is another custom post type.

  • Thanks for the answer. Makes sense to go with the native system and piggy back on that.

  • You are welcome   🙂
