Removing the previous version of social rendering

You can remove the Social Lists 1.0 library and its configuration to remove it from the toolbar after you deploy the Social Lists 1.1 Library. Once you have removed the library, remove the drag and drop configuration with a separate command.

About this task

The difference between the deprecated Social Lists 1.0 library and the Social lists 1.1 library is the use of OneUI styles. The latest versions of the social rendering uses the Social Lists 1.1 library and does not depend on the OneUI styles.
