We need to "modernize" SharePoint pages after migrating from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2019. Which options do we have?

There is lots of documentation around modernization and respective tooling here in the Microsoft docs but this seems to apply only to SharePoint Online. Which is a pity.

Which options do we have on-premises?


The only current method to modernize is to recreate the pages.

  • My question explicitly targets pages but I assume the same applies to whole sites (on-premises), right? I can also ask this as a new question if the answer is "it's complicated". Mar 15 '19 at 15:39

    You're correct. As with any site, you cannot change the template from one to another -- this has always been true and continues to be true for classic -> modern. You'd need to use a content migration tool. Mar 15 '19 at 15:45
