Blog post migration to Community

Hi,

After migration to Community some blog posts have the correct title but the content is replaced with other document.

eg: https://blogs.sap.com/2016/06/01/sap-effective-interest-rate-vs-ms-excel-irr-xirr/

vs

scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-73472

I have reported to moderator but 7 out of 8 blog content is wrong

Kind Regards

Hello,

Team is working on this problem. All affected content will be re-migrated in the next days and the issue should be fixed.

Please, don't remove the posts for now.

Thank you,

Volha

Yes, attachments are lost making some of my blog post useless. I had txt files attached with VBA code. Now I see nothing.

Hello,

The problem has been fixed. Your content should be in place.

Hi Volha,

Documents are in place now 🙂 Good work !!!!!!

Now attached files to documents are missing :'( . In the link of my question, the original document had 2 xml files but they are gone. it happened also in other blog with txt file ( https://blogs.sap.com/2015/07/28/additional-fields-in-liquidity-planner/ )

I've read help and says there is a add media button, but I can't find it. Could you help me ?

Kind Regards

Gustavo Vazquez,

Unfortunately, attachments are not supported for the migration to Blogs so the absence is expected.

Your document was migrated to archives where attachements are supported and attached files are saved: http://archive.sap.com/documents/docs/DOC-73472

Sorry, but my blogs without attachments are simply useless! And no information was distributed that attachments will be lost!

Ok, just understand that current blogs do not support any attachments at all! Absolutely frustrating.

What was the reason to remove attachment feature?

What was the idea of migrating documents to blogs without attachments?

I am lost!

Vadim,

Current state is not ideal. We are still on improving the community and your feedback will help in it.

If you have suggestions you can submit it here:

Sorry, but I am not talking about suggestions, it's a bug report!

"Not ideal" means that something is not perfect - font size, colors, extra button press to get something....

But the blog describing VBA code to perform complex things without attached code is something useless! In order to correct it I will have to paste a lot of code lines directly into blog? Or what?

Hi Volha,

For the moment, could you this be put on "Get started" on how to access old documents.

For the moment, I go to google.com and search for a title (ie: "NPV Analysis") and author (Gustavo Vazquez). Get link scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-73558, then replace scn for archive (http://archive.sap.com/docs/DOC-73558 ) and get my document with attachments.

Any better idea ?

Kind Regards

Hi

I checked document "DME Tips & Tricks" in the archive but couldn't find it, searching by title or by author. I had to go through google.

Hi Vadim,

As blogs are not the appropriate place for documents (such as help guides) going forward, I would recommend creating future such documents in the wiki. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Sorry, but today wiki is not related to new Community... Not sure it's a good idea to post in wiki (may be it will be upgraded/migrated etc...)

It will be eventually, but for now, this is the appropriate place.

I decided to add the link to the archive document at the end of the blog - to get attachments!
