The Sunset for Classic Google Sites Has Been Extended to 2021!

Last year Google announced a timeline for the shutdown of the classic version of Google Sites. That announcement called for the classic version of Google Sites to come to an end at then end of this year. It appears that Google has listened to user feedback because this week they announced that support for the classic version of Google Sites will continue until the end of 2021!

In the same announcement about support for classic Google Sites there was information about new features being added to the new (current) version of Google Sites. Those new features include tables, image carousels, and greater control over font styling.

If you're wondering about the key differences between the classic version of Google Sites and the new version of Google Sites, I wrote an overview of them here.

And for those who want to convert their old Google Sites to the new version, I created this video tutorial for you.

Google Sites Conversion Tool Now Available to More Users

A couple of months ago Google introduced an easy way to convert old Google Sites to the new version of Google Sites. Availability of that tool has been mixed with some domains having access to it and others not seeing it at all. That's changing this week as Google has announced a full deployment of the Google Sites automatic conversion tool. The conversion tool lets you quickly recreate your existing classic (AKA old version) Google Site in the new version of Google Sites. Watch my video to see how you can convert your classic Google Site to the new version of Google Sites.


Just a reminder, the old version of Google Sites is going away. The new version does have some great features that the old version lacked.
