PPLD.org is upgrading from D6 to D7 using a clean D7 instance and migrating data either via Migrate module, or via Feeds somehow. Here’s what is stumping me:
We have over 3,000 taxonomy terms/tags. Every node has at least one taxonomy term attached to it. We have over 11,000 nodes. I'm trying to figure out the best way to import our taxonomy from our D6 site to our D7 site. I think I need to make sure the tids (and vids I think) stay the same so the nodes are properly tagged. Is that right? What would be the best way to do this? I'm looking at Migrate module, but it's confusing. If it's the way to go, I'll devote brain time to figuring it out. Otherwise, should I just enter them by hand and make sure the tids match up? Also, I hear D7 dispensed with vids and uses machine names now. Does that screw up the tagging on the nodes either way? Will I have to touch every node?</brain explodes>
Has anyone migrated a D6 library site (with tons of taxonomy for subject guides) to D7 successfully? I’d love to hear from you!
Any guidance you can offer is greatly appreciated.
