Drupal 9 Launches!

Start a Drupal 9 Readiness To-Do List using Upgrade Status

Upgrade status generates a report that serves as a sort of checklist to help you determine whether or not your site is ready to be upgraded to Drupal 9. It packs a lot of useful information into a single report. It's worth taking the time to install it on a copy of your Drupal 8 site and seeing what it has to say.

Drupal 8 Upgrade Path

All this excited talk of Drupal 8 has a lot of people dreaming of the day they get to start working with it. Some people get to build new sites from scratch all the time, but a lot of Drupal work out there is maintaining and upgrading existing sites. How will the Drupal 8 upgrade path work, and will it be as shiny as Drupal 8 itself? Well, upgrades will be radically different in Drupal 8, and I'd say it has all the shiny you could possibly want.

Adventures in Porting a D7 Form Module to Drupal 8

Got some Drupal 7 modules that use the Form API lying around? Want to learn how to port them to Drupal 8? The process could just be the crash course you've been looking for in Drupal 8, object-oriented, module development.

Our Approach to Data Migration for the Upgrade

In this post I'm going to give a little bit of insight in to how we are planning (and currently attempting) to migrate all the data from our current Drupal 6 site to our new Drupal 7 site using a couple of handy tools like Jenkins CI, bash shell, drush and the migrate module.

It has been a few months since we started our site upgrade, and I wanted to give an update on our progress. We are a small team of three, who manage the site and create most of the videos, so needless to say we've gotten a bit waylaid on our schedule. We've also had quite a bit of fun distraction with our Lullabot company retreat (which was sooo fun!) and DrupalCon Munich (which was amazing). So, while we're not as far as we wanted to be, we have gotten a good chunk of work started, and we're through Phases 1 and 2!

One of the best parts of doing an upgrade on an existing site is that it gives you the opportunity to fix things that need fixing.

Giving Drupalize.Me a New Coat of Paint

As some of you may know, we're in the process of upgrading the cuddly panda that we all know and love as Drupalize.Me to Drupal 7. There will be other blog posts giving a better insight into the actual upgrade but, I'll be talking about what that means for the design of the site.

Time to Upgrade!

This week our team got together and started to focus on a new project: upgrading our site to Drupal 7. Drupalize.Me was originally built on Drupal 6 back in 2010 and the site is running very well, but we’d love to move up to Drupal 7. Aside from just playing with the great new features in Drupal 7, we also want to take a fresh look at the site and clean up a few things.
