If you want to be able to say you're done with your Drupal-to-Drupal migration, first you have to be able to define "done". And part of that is doing a content analysis and inventory. Performing a content analysis and inventory will help you ensure that you don't miss any fields or important records. It also gives you an opportunity to spend some time thinking about the overall information architecture of your site. You're already going to be doing a lot of work to migrate your content, so deciding to shuffle things a bit now might not add any significant extra time. Additionally, the latest Drupal (as of Drupal 10) is a different platform than either Drupal 6 or 7, and as such, there are some new best practices and new ways of doing things that might not have been available before.
In this tutorial we'll:
- Provide a set of questions you can ask yourself about the content of your current site to kick-start your analysis.
- Give an example of how we create a content type inventory in a spreadsheet and use that to help define "done" for our projects.
By the end of this tutorial you should be able to get started analyzing the content and content types of your existing site in order to start planning for your Drupal-to-Drupal migration.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
