Drupal 7 update

Just a short interlude to the series on CGSHR…


I've been putting off updating this blog to Drupal 7, but it's time to bite the bullet and do it on several sites I'm responsible for.

Actually this site is simple enough that the data migration was quite straightforward; the time-consuming part of it was the re-making of the theme, since themes can't really be upgraded as such. Good opportunity to make the theme a bit more responsive, anyhow.

One odd glitch was the scrambling of the Administration menu - items disappeared, other items turned up in the wrong place, etc. No amount of re-installing the Admin menu module, rebuilding the menu cache, etc. was of any help.

It turns out this was a known issue (see this d.o post). After hacking some stuff out of the MySQL database as per a suggestion here, the Admin menu was back to normal.

Now that that's done, it's on to Resonetrics.com...
