Accelerating Drupal 8 Adoption

Drupal is at a critical point in its history. To justify an upgrade to the now production-ready Drupal 8, the Drupal development community have implicitly asked the 1m+ website owners, developers and authors to trust that Drupal will continue to be their engine of innovation for the next 3–5 years. Historically Drupal has been a Lego box for site builders and developers, enabling complex use-cases via a mature and sophisticated module eco-system. The last major version of Drupal had barely any adoption until 6 months after its release when the module eco-system caught up.

2 drupals site in on one hosting server

Hi

I have a drupal 6 website hosted at netregistry, which is the site we have been using for many years.

We wanted to create a new web site using drupal 7 so we created a sub folder called DEV and then created a new site in this folder using drupal 7.

We built this site in the DEV folder and now is ready to go live.

It got a bit messy because we just thought we could do a redirection on the incoming url to this sub folder which works ok but we can still see the DEV subfolder in the url and can't access the drupal 6 site via a url.

User Research survey for Drupal.org.au

Hi everyone!

If you haven't already done so, please head along to drupal.org.au and fill out this survey!

https://drupal.org.au/contact/user_research

If you have already done it, could you please help spread the word?

We'd like to get this out beyond the usual suspects if we can, and would love your help to do that. Especially if you know some folk who are actively evaluating Drupal, or perhaps you know some people who use a Drupal site, but aren't site builders or devs, please share the link, and ask them to share their thoughts.

cheers!
