I'm in the middle of updating an EE 1.6.9 site to 2.5.2. Everything went smoothly up until I verified the content. For some reason any time there's a comma and/or an apostrophe the channel data and categories are all truncated from that point.

I've tried to research this as best I could but it's been tough to figure out. Has anyone else ran into this?

You may want to consider updating to the latest 1.x branch (1.7.3) before upgrading to 2.x. That's solved all issues for me in the past.

  • Yeah, that's what I was thinking it would be. Shame the docs make no mention of this though. Thanks Philip.

  • Yeah, I would actually expect the 2.x install to make all the appropriate 1.x upgrades... ah well :D Nov 27, 2012 at 0:19
  • Where can I download version 1.7 from? I can't find it anywhere on the ee site.
