The old site will still be running. We run all our intranet landing pages from it so as we migrate intranets over to the new site, the old ones will still be being used. We have a feature set up where a user can create a list of links that they use frequently and we show them on the home page. My thought was, the easiest way show them would be to just connect to the old DB for the time being and let that feature live on the old site, once the new intranet is up and going fully, we would migrate that feature over. Hope that makes sense.
