Migrating From Drupal 7 to Drupal 9

Migrating From Drupal Seven to Drupal Nine

The year is 2020. All my normal activities in Cleveland and my backpacking adventures on the Continental Divide Trail and Appalachian Trail have been canceled due to the coronavirus crisis. My wife and co-blogger, Julie, and I have been writing a series of 2020 Social Distancing Blog Posts about the COVID-19-safe activities in which we are able to partake. These blog posts were added to our website, which I built on the Drupal 7 content management system over eight years ago:

At the same time we have been writing blog posts this summer, I have been working behind the scenes on a new website. The new website is built on the new Drupal 9, which launched on June 3, 2020.

My goal was to create the new website with the new Drupal 9 version of the content management system, but with basically the same theme and content I had on my current Drupal 7 website.

I am launching my new Drupal 9 website on October 1, 2020, since this is a special date: my eleventh Twitter anniversary.

Bootstrap: Powerful & Easy HTML/CSS

Bootstrap: Powerful & Easy HTML/CSS Templates

At the October 20, 2012, meeting, attendees were given an in-depth introduction to a collection of HTML/CSS components, as well as JavaScript extensions, that make the creation of websites easier -- Bootstrap. After I saw a May 15, 2012, presentation on Bootstrap from Twitter by the Cleveland Adobe Users Group leader, Dan Vega, I asked him to do his presentation at a meeting. Dan did a great job sharing his knowledge of the subject, and prepared an incredible set of slides that will be a resource for members going forward.

Here is a summary from my notes of some of the key points learned that day, along with a list of other related resources. I hope you find these as useful as I did.

At the March 17, 2012, meeting, Richard Schulte, a co-founder of the local tech worker co-op Flywheel Tech Collective, did a presentation on “Javascript/Stylesheet UI Toolkits - Why, Which and How?” He introduced attendees to the more popular and/or useful tools for developing Javascript and Cascading Stylesheets for website design, and Richard did not disappoint his audience.
