We hosted a technical community which uses discourse system. Currently, we’re using Discourse 1.5.3 which is 2 years old version. We want to upgrade to the newest 2.0 discourse version, so as to access to discourse app.
But we did too many custom page before by directly forking the code. So we have to make our customed page into a plugin, and it can compatible with our old system1.5.3. But we found we still can’t connect to discourse app. We also found we can’t use easy one-click upgrade function to upgrade to the latest version. It’s always failed because the plugin didn’t compatible with 2.0 version.
So my question is:
Is there a way I can use to 1.5.3 discourse system and it’s compatible plugin to connect discourse app?
Our main goal is to adapt to discourse app, is the app only support the newest discourse version to connect?
If we need to upgrade the community to the 2.0 version, we need to make our plugin also compatible with the 2.0 version right? So it means we need to change our plugin code in each time when we want to upgrade the community, isn’t it?
