How to Guide: Content Transfer has a new tool that copies content from your old Sportsground or Schoolground site to your new Sporty site.  Sporty is the official upgrade path for Sportsground and Schoolground.

PLEASE NOTE: When you action the content transfer it will REPLACE any content on your Sporty site. If you have started editing and adding information to your Sporty site then action the content transfer it will REPLACE this content.

Step 1:

Log in to your Sporty website.

Step 2:

If you're not at your Dashboard, click on the Dashboard button.

Step 3:

If you have access to more than one Sporty site, check that the correct organisation name is showing.  If not click the drop-down arrow to select the organisation you wish to copy content for.

Step 4:

In your address bar, you will see the URL:

Replace the word dashboard with contenttransfer so it reads:

and press Enter on your keyboard.

Note that the URL may display differently in different browsers, (Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome, Safari etc) - for example the www. may be omitted - this is not an issue.

Step 5:

Click on Transfer Content.

Step 6:

Type UPGRADE in the text box, and click Transfer Content to confirm you want to go ahead.

This screen also tells you the approximate time it will take to copy across your website.  The time depends on the size of the site and how many other sites are in the queue to copy content.

Step 7:

Click Done.

Your site will now be in the queue to copy content.  A message will display on your website saying that it is temporarily unavailable while the copying is taking place.

When the copying is complete, your Sporty site will become available and you will receive a confirmation email.

Step 8:

Please contact and we will set an auto redirect so if anyone goes to your site at they will automatically be redirected to and your old site will disappear.
