Currently, over 700,000 websites are still using Drupal 7. Our last webinar explored how Drupal 7 and 8 will no longer get updates, bug fixes or security patches from November 2022 and 2021 respectively.
Drupal 9 was released in June 2020. It will become the standard platform all organisations must use. An audit is the best way to get started on your move to Drupal 9 – but what are the best steps?
- Content Audit – analysing whether the content on your site is on-brand, still relevant, and how it is structured in the CMS (content types and taxonomy).
- Features Audit – understanding what features are important to administrators; how the workflow, CRM and user permissions are structured; and whether users have the front-end features they need.
- Modules Audit – discovering whether the modules you’re using are compatible with Drupal 8, with a focus on the custom ones.
- Theme/Template Audit – if you’re not using a default theme, understanding whether it’s more cost-effective to recode existing templates or refresh them.
- DevOps Audit – taking the opportunity to review any performance, scalability and redundancy issues at the server level.
