I followed the upgrade guide, we just have a basic web dev blog. I saved my App_Data folder with the users.xml file and all the posts since we use Xml to store our posts. I moved over all the other folders and Web pages... after moving over all the new web pages, restarting the website. No one can login even though we are still in the users.xml file. All of our posts are there but only via the quicklinks the link to the detailed version of the post shows page cannot be found.....any ideas?

Hi rbellantoni,

We very recently had this discussion thread that laboriously worked through a similar issue:

http://blogengine.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=74271

If you fall back to the default users.xml file, can you login as an admin? Maybe checking the widgets xml file as was done in that thread cold help.

Best Wishes,
