I have been quoted an exorbitant price to upgrade from 1.9.5 to 2.5. I am particularly interested in Mozilla Open Badges which, I understand 2.5 supports (do previous versions?)
In any case due to financial reasons and because the content of the site is relatively small I am toying with the idea of downloading 2.5 and starting from scratch i.e. download 2.5, transfer the content that is currently on 1.9.5 onto it and use 2.5 in the future. Is this possible, and is it possible without hours of painstaking work? If there is an easier and cost effective way of doing what I want to do I would be grateful to hear it. Thanks.
