Converting Flexinode to CCK

Using Flexinode to CCK Coverter module

We just have flexinode-1 with fields:

mysql> select * from flexinode_field;
+----------+----------+---------------+---------------+--------+----------+-------------+------------+------+------------+-------------------+-------------------------------------------------+
| field_id | ctype_id | label         | default_value | weight | required | show_teaser | show_table | rows | field_type | options           | description                                     |
+----------+----------+---------------+---------------+--------+----------+-------------+------------+------+------------+-------------------+-------------------------------------------------+
|        1 |        1 | Details       |               |      0 |        1 |           0 |          0 |    5 | textarea   | a:1:{i:1;s:0:"";} | Details of event                                |
|        2 |        1 | Event website |               |      0 |        0 |           0 |          0 |    0 | url        | a:1:{i:1;s:0:"";} |                                                 |
|        3 |        1 | Location      |               |      0 |        0 |           1 |          0 |    0 | address    | a:1:{i:1;s:0:"";} |                                                 |
|        4 |        1 | Report        |               |      0 |        0 |           0 |          0 |    0 | url        | a:1:{i:1;s:0:"";} | add this after the event, when you report on it |

Seems flexiconvert may not handle address field, there is no CCK type for this either. Converting this into a text area with newlines seems like the best option. The Report url can be lost as it was hardly, if ever, used. CCK gives much better link to other node option anyway.

  • Switch off flexinode before you can create CCK type with matching field names
  • First test, without the address field worked, and didn't copy the address - as predicted. Errors for each node
