Consider Drupal Website Migration Services

Are you thinking about Drupal 7 to 8? Do you still use Drupal 7 or Drupal 6 for your website? It is time to move to Drupal 8. If you are still using Drupal 7 or 6, we have extensive information on why you should migrate Drupal 8 to your computer. 

However, Drupal 9 is on its way! This is one of our favorite reasons to migrate to Drupal 8. It is highly recommended that you migrate Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 if you wish to reap the benefits of Drupal site migration services. You could argue that Drupal 8 should be installed now, as there is not enough time after Drupal 9's release (June 2020) or Drupal 7's EOL (Nov 2021). 


You could also opt for LTS (long-term support) instead. It's fair enough. You are losing out on Drupal 8's rich benefits, not only will you spend more money to engage an LTS provider. While some things might seem hard, they are essential for a better and simpler future.

You don't need to "migrate" once you have Drupal 8 installed. A simple upgrade from Drupal 8.9 or 9 to 10, then 9.9 or 10 will suffice. It is not always simple and straightforward to migrate from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. While it is helpful to follow a process, you may still face challenges during the migration. 

This is especially true if your Drupal 7 site's content model can be quite complex. Let's walk you through migrating from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8, and what challenges you might encounter. Our recommendations for how to overcome them.

To ensure a smooth Drupal content migration, you must first identify the content types and structure of the site. Then document your observations. This includes content types, block types, taxonomies, and field types. 

Based on your observations, create a plan for what you want to migrate and what should be merged. To make it easier to duplicate them in Drupal 8, analyze the views and other configurations.
