Upgrade Lamphear Design Drupal 6 to 7
- Created a devel site with copied files and database. Updated core and modules to latest Drupal 6. Removed thousands of bogus users. 81 mins with Drush.
- Followed the instructions in UPGRADE.txt that comes with Drupal 7. Migrated CCK. Removed a couple of modules that had no replacement or weren't being used. 1 hour and 40 minutes.
- Start upgrading theme. Countless hours here.
- Gave up because of the difficulty in replacing a drupal 6 module that allowed a link to be attached to an image.
Spent a lot of time on mygorp.com and here at pchousekeeping.com trying the views module as a possible solution. I did get limited sucess with the Image Link Formatter module, but I have a problem of duplicates in the view. It's a widespread problem with phantom solutions that work for some folks, but not all.
