Plans for the future....

Right now I want to get this site live, and the old site gone. Once that is done then the next step is to wait for Drupal 8.1 to be released. Drupal 8 isn't out yet, and I want to wait for a .1 release before migrating. Reading up on Drupal 8, there are a lot of features that I would like to have on the site in it.. So that for now is our plan.. Run this version of Drupal (7.x) until Drupal 8.1 comes out, then migrate. When that happens, it should be transparent to the users.. I hope :)

If you want to read about Drupal 8, you can read about it here : https://www.drupal.org/drupal-8.0/faq

"We are the Drupal, your site

"We are the Drupal, your site will be assimilated. We will add your forums' and posts' distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile." :P I would say guess the tv show reference, but no one would fail to get it.

Just curious, how is this any

Just curious, how is this any worse than the CMS software we ran before, it also was a package that we maintained, adnd.com has not been hand written in 10+ years. We have always run some sort of 3rd party software. The decision to switch to drupal was for a few reasons.

1) It is currently a supported platform, with wide spread usage, it is not going away.
2) It is really easy to customize the software via modules and templates. The old software was too, but that support died out..
3) I work with this software in my job, so I am familiar with it. Any time I needed to do something in the old system I had to get ahold of Olly and get him to help me, I never got familiar enough with it to actually do anything.

Those are the main reasons.. I understand there is going to be some bumps in the road as we move along, but I think in the long run things will be better. Bare with me.. I am working out the bugs.. Some are easy, some are more difficult. Some may not be able to be fixed.. But they are not site killing bugs.

I wasn't complaining about

I wasn't complaining about Drupal, I was just using it as an excuse to make a Star Trek borg reference :P
I think Drupal will work out fine for the new site!

Got reference

My son realized the importance of Cardiff, Wales. We were there at a little show when the emcee admitted that he was once in a Dr. Who episode, and that Dr. Who was mostly filmed in a studio around the block. While our time was limited, my son felt some pleasure in knowing that he had come close to where he could be assimilated.

Yeah, he could have been

Yeah, he could have been converted into a cyberman. :P
PS: I've always thought the cybermen were a cooler villain race than the daleks.
