Liferay 7.2 introduced the possibility of creating custom column layouts within Content Pages and adding widgets to them. Thanks to these functionalities, the large majority of cases where widget pages were being used is now better served by Content Pages. Furthermore Content Pages have powerful new capabilities including the use of fragments and personalization capabilities.
However, for customers upgrading from older versions of Liferay will already have many sites with pages created as Widget Pages. In order to benefit from some of the new features they need to manually convert the pages.
In this Epic, we aim to provide a set of tools and features that will aid site administrators to convert existing widget pages into Content Pages and other Fragment based pages such as Display Pages and Page templates.
