    • Error CS0115  'PropertyForumAssociation.CreatePropertyControl()': no suitable method found to override EPiServer.Templates.RelatePlus
    • Remove CreatePropertyControl () functions and replace RelateInitializationModule.cs with the attached file.

    • Replace the following methods and properties:

    • In RouteTable.Routes.GetVirtualPathForNonContent, change
var currentLanguage = Globalization.ContentLanguage.PreferredCulture.Name;

to

var virtualPath = UrlResolver.Current.GetVirtualPathForNonContent(entry, currentLanguage, null);
    •   In Configuration.Settings.Instance.SiteDisplayName, update EPiServer.Web.SiteDefinition.Current.Name.
    •   In StripHtmlFilterRules, update using EPiServer.HtmlParsing.Internal;.

    • Change
      PermanentContentLinkMap pplm = PermanentLinkMapStore.Find(pageEntity.PageGuid) as PermanentContentLinkMap; 
      to
      PermanentLinkMap pplm = ServiceLocator.Current.GetInstance<IPermanentLinkMapper>().Find(pageEntity.PageGuid);
    • Regarding the function VersioningFileSystemSearchHandler: temporarily ignore it. To do so, comment it and return zero (0).
