Upgrade Lamphear Design Drupal 6 to 7

Upgrade Lamphear Design Drupal 6 to 7

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Start upgrading theme. Countless hours here.
  4. 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.
