Support » Everything else WordPress » Drupal 2008. Update it or switch to WP ?

  • I have installed a client on Drupal in 2008. Now their site is due to a major update so I am wondering what would be the best choice, really ? Is it moving everything to WordPress, or updating 2008 Drupal to the latest one available (which would probably ask for plugins to update too).

    Your anwser ?

    It depends on why you picked Drupal in the first place. Drupal’s a fine product, and if you need its functionality, you should totally use it. But if you don’t, or if WordPress’ are more what you want, you should use that.

    I have chosen drupal at the time as I was testing both CMSs, so this project was a drupal one. But yeah, it could have been a wordpress one too. It is for an organisation.

    the site as:
    -pages whit more permanent content
    -news for ongoing stuff
    -calendar for events
    -login for users, some can access/modify the site more than the others

    Sure, you can totally do that with WordPress. Works fine.

    thanks guys

    any quick hint on how that could be worth $ in work for transfering all to wordpress ? I might do it or might hired an wordpress expert insted… (the site contains 50 news)

    …or any redirection to a good link/site maybe ?

    It’s not that hard to write a php script that pulls the records from a Drupal site and inserts them into a WordPress site, as long as you know were everything is located in the two databases. I’ve done it twice… once from Drupal and once from a CMS I helped build.

    This site has a lot of good info on Drupal to WordPress migration:
