I am working on a rough estimate for migrating multiple sites from Drupal 7 to Backdrop. Our agency has quite a few sites (upwards of 10, I think), built on a similar platform in Drupal 7, with fairly typical configuration (includes Panels). Backdrop seems like a great fit for these sites.
I have read through the documentation on migrating from Drupal 7, and updating themes. I have a few questions about migrating specific things:
- Our themes are usually based on Adaptive Theme - what do I need to do about that? Will we need to port it? I'm not sure what might happen if we just take out the base theme...
- Is there a migration path from Drupal 7 Panels to Backdrop layouts? Or do we have to rebuild these ?
- I can't find a solution for Field Collection - what will happen with these? I'm not sure how extensively they are used in our projects anyway. Will they migrate?
- Things like Mailchimp and Google analytics - will the configuration for these migrate or do we need to re-configure?
That's all for now. TIA!
