I may not be searching the right terms, but I can't seem to find any information on the proper way to deploy development changes from one environment to another. We have dev / qa / acceptance / production environments and we need a solid process for move layouts, widget updates, etc... from one environment to another without affecting the content (so simply copying the whole database is not an option)
The "Theme" exports do not include layouts, headers and footers, and other random things are missing. Is there a way to tag items so they are included in the Site / Groups / Blogs Export?
I'm not looking to do any sort of merge. I'm looking for a process that will overwrite all the:
1) all the widgets and resources
2) all the page layouts and configuration
as we push from environment to environment.
Is there a guide or documentation that I perhaps missed?
Thanks in advance or any insight.
Does this documentation help you?
telligent.com/.../24724.customize-with-themes.aspx and more specifically telligent.com/.../24737.export-or-import-a-site-group-or-blog-theme.aspx
We export the theme (control panel), Widgets (widget studio), however layouts and config, we go page by page, group by group and export those as separate XML files, and then import them separately - not sure if there is another way.
