[Hippo-cms7-user] Regarding change in data type.

"update all content" can indeed be used to convert the content to the
new version.  You should make sure that the cnd that is generated is
indeed what you want it to be, i.e. your templates are correct.  You
can verify this in a development environment by using
update-all-content and then exporting the cnd from the console.

In the latest release of the CMS (2.09.xx), the update is saved in a
single step; so this procedure only works when there is not too much
content.  We are working on a multi-save solution that does not have
content size limitations, this should be available in the next release

In the mean time, for large amounts of content, you can make export
the content to XML and re-import it in a repository with the new
nodetype definitions.

cheers, Frank

We are planning to upgrade this field to HTML. Is it possible once the datamodel is changed update all site content will automatically resolve this datatype conversion? Can someone give us guidelines as to how we can proceed.
