Hi fellow Typo3-users!
I am building a TYPO3-site for a client, where I need to import data
from a custom made gallery/shop system. I will then use the page
structure as categories and records as image elements in TYPO3 to
display future uploaded images.
But the problem is that I need to preserve the old element ID's (or in
TYPO3 lingo UIDs) so I will not mess up any element data, while still
being able to add new ID's for any future images. How do I approach this
in TYPO3? Would I then be using for instance many-to-many relations?
I've been wondering if I should build the whole thing from the ground
and up, but as the old system contains hundreds of products all relating
to each other, I'm naturally trying to find the easiest solution.
