Best way to convert LinkItemCollection to ContentArea?



There are several block types where I need to convert a LinkItemCollection property to a ContentArea property, what would be the easiest way to do this?

I have tried to just change the type from LinkItemCollection to ContentArea, but then the LinkItems only show as null objects in edit view.

Should I build a conversion job, or does anyone else have a better idea?

I think the best way is -

  1. Create a new ContentArea property
  2. Create A new BlockType with Link Property
  3. Create a scheduled Job to pull the data from the existing LinkItemCollection property and then create a new block and put it into the new ContentArea and publish it

Yes I guess that is the only way to do this. Thanks!
