Just another site

    Hi Brad, I did confirm that this is the way it works. It does a compatibility check on the web between 14 and 15 and if it doesn’t match then it won’t replicate the content types. And vice versa for 15 to 14. The logic is a simply “equals” so you have pointed out a very good point for people that are thinking they won’t upgrade all their sites right away and use the content type hub.

    Thanks for pointing this out!

    Had a client run into this same issue. Thanks for the clerification and tip on a workaround. Thanks for pointing all of this out to everyone. I will be adding your site to my list of sharepoint resources on my blog. Thanks!!

    I think MS already know about it:

    Its actually documented in that article:

    Content type syndication uses the backup and restore mechanism in SharePoint Server to publish the content types across site collections. And backup and restore does not work across versions in the following scenarios:
    Between 2010 and 2013
    Between sites in 2010 mode on a 2013 farm and those in 2013 mode on a 2013 farm
