North West Drupal Usergroup Meetup October 2013

  • Oct 2, 2013 · 7:00 PM

The October NWDUG meetup will take place on 2nd October at MadLab on Edge Street from 7PM until 9PM.

This month we have Graham Brown who will be talking about the Migrating Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 using Views Data Export and Feeds.
Most of the time it's just not possible to upgrade a Drupal 6 site to Drupal 7 and you have to start from scratch and one of the easiest ways of migrating the mass of content is to use XML and a couple of handy modules. This method is more robust than using node export as it allows you to create bespoke migrations and can still handle the content even if all the field names are different.

After the talk we will break off into groups so that people can talk through their Drupal problems with other members of the group. There is nothing formal planned for this, we will just ask if anyone has any problems and if anyone can help them solve it.

We usually wrap things up before 9:00 PM and move to a pub. Come along and join in the Drupal fun!
