I am so fed up with Drupal right now. I’m honestly GLAD I’m abandoning it for TRC.
I only have one other website that runs Drupal: the Town of Bradford. I’m trying to work on converting them to Drupal 8, like I was going to do with TRC.
As much as I don’t want to, this has become a necessity. Drupal 7 AND 8 are both coming to end of life in November this year. Drupal 9 will be released in June, and from what I read, the upgrade from 8 to 9 is pretty seamless. The hurdle is getting to Drupal 8 first, as the 7 to 8 upgrade is a bit of a nightmare.
Over a year ago, I setup a test website to work on just that nightmare. The site has been running for some time, sort of abandoned. This weekend, I attempted to get it up to date again. That was my big mistake. I broke the entire thing! I have no friggen idea what I did, or why it broke, but everything I’ve tried so far has just made it worse. I even tried rolling back to a backup and it died too.
I guess this means I need to start over completely with Drupal 8. Sigh.
At this point I’m honestly considering converting it to WordPress like everything else…
