I have installed a fresh copy of BE 3.3.0.0 and then upgraded it to 3.3.5.0. When I follow the instructions to move the content of my existing (2.7) AppData folder to the new site I can't see the old posts. They are in the folder but I don't see them within my blog. I am using the XML datastore, not SQL. Any idea why the posts from my 2.7 site aren't being displayed in my new 3.3.5 site?

Thanks,

J.

Although I have experienced issues with authentication, and the issue that the admin user has "View Dashboard" unchecked, things seems to be working pretty well now. I've migrated all old posts (AppData), setup the missing widgets, chosen a new theme (The theme I was using from Mads Kristensen doesn't appear to be available any longer) and all seems ok expect one thing; the Dashboard fails to populate. A long running script never completes. I'll start a separate thread for this though.
