Understanding how legacy navbars and themes are migrated
Legacy themes are navbar templates created prior to Learning Environment 9.0. Legacy themes appear similar to current themes, but legacy themes were built on an older technology still supported by the current Learning Environment.
The new Navigation & Themes tool allows greater design flexibility, and supports a variety of layouts you can use to style navbars. Your navbars and legacy themes are automatically migrated when you upgrade from a pre-Learning Environment 9.0 release to Learning Environment 9.0 or later. You can still edit and share legacy themes, however, your ability to copy these items is restricted.
Legacy themes are still supported in Learning Environment 10, and they are listed in the same location as the new themes.
All your existing navbars are migrated to the new Navigation & Themes tool. Your theme, name, description, links, and title are maintained.
The following applies to migrated navbars:
- The navbar set as the active navbar for a course or My Home before an upgrade is maintained as the active navbar for the course or My Home in the upgraded site.
- The navbar set as the Course Default at the organization level before an upgrade is maintained as the course default in the upgraded site.
Your navbars will be fully migrated and should work seamlessly in the new Navigation & Themes tool.
