Hello everybody , 

I went throught all the available modules for Backdrop and looked on Github too , perhaps i missed what I am looking for . I am on Drupal 7 and want to upgrade to Backdrop . I am looking for a substitute for Node Limit from Drupal 7 also a substitute for Taxonomy Manager . Or do they work in Backdrop without porting ?

Thank you , regards

Hello ,

You are right; these modules do not seem to have been ported yet. It seems that nobody has needed them before (you can check for existing requests here: https://github.com/backdrop-ops/contrib/issues).

Having said that, you could try using those D7 modules as they are, and they may just work. I think that you may have better luck with taxonomy_manager. With node_limit, I suspect that you may have issues with role-based limits, as role IDs in Backdrop have been changed to use role names instead (see https://api.backdropcms.org/change-records/converted-user-roles-cmi), so that one may need some love before it is fully usable.

You could always try running the 7.x versions of these modules through https://github.com/backdrop-contrib/coder_upgrade 😉

I can confirm that Taxonomy Manager transfers with Coder Upgrade. I tried it after stumbling on to this because I was doing it manually and could get it to work despite doing it a few times. So cool. I'll look into making it a contrib module following what Backdrop community rules suggest.
