Widget studio widgets that replace widgets that existed in 5.6 are designed to output the exact same markup as the 5.6 version with the following exceptions:
- Search Result List
This widget was significantly redesigned to support the improved searching features in 6.0. The markup associated to this widget has been changed and should be reviewed when upgrading from 5.6 to 6.0.
- User - Login / Create User
The User - Login and Create User widgets have been merged into a single User - Create and Login widget. This combined widget renders different markup than either of the associated 5.6 widgets.
- Headers / Footers
Headers and footers in 6.0 are implemented using the same widget set as page content widgets. Within the content of the header and footer widgets, the output markup is the same as in 5.6, but the wrapping markup/class names are adjusted to reflect the editable nature of headers and footers in 6.0.
- Variations for Fiji/Evolution2
When the scripted versions of widgets that were theme-versioned in 5.6 for the Fiji or Evolution2 themes were created, a superset of the Fiji and Evolution2 markup was used instead of the generic version of the widget. If custom themes were created based on the Fiji or Evolution2 themes, changes should be minimized, but CSS in custom themes targeting theme-prefixed CSS classes should be reviewed. The following widgets were theme-versioned in 5.6:
- Blog - Post
- Blog - Post List
- Featured Content
- Forum - Thread
- Media Gallery - File
- Conversation List
- Wikis - Page
If further adjustments are required to support the new theme for 6.0, the existing widget set (supporting Fiji and Evolution2) will be exported to enable a more seamless upgrade from 5.6 to 6.0 for users of the Fiji and Evolution2 themes.
