Drupal 5 to Drupal 7: WETA.org Makes the Leap Jess Snyder, Web Systems Manager, WETA @jesseves

Background • WETA: Flagship public broadcasting station for Washington, DC • Launched weta.org on Drupal 5 in 2008 • Re-launched on Drupal 7 in November 2013

Problems to Solve • Landing pages • Radio playlists • Community calendar • Content migration

Landing Pages Or: Blocks That Aren’t Blocks

Landing Pages • Frequent content updates • Re-use content on multiple pages • Modular design

Feature Blocks • Panels + “Feature Block” content type • Multiple view modes via Display Suite • Individually placed or scheduled via Views and Node Reference

Playlists Or: Sometimes Views Isn’t Enough

Playlists • Crazy, crazy rules about how playlists display • hook_views_query_alter()

Community Calendar Or: Explaining Date Repeat to Grandma

Community Calendar • Module recipe: Date + Views, not Calendar • Date handling: repeating vs. multiple dates • Conditional Fields + Rules + Computed Field

Content Migration Or: Step 1: Install Migrate. Step 3. Profit!!

Content Migration • Three options 1. Giant Copy/Paste Party!!! 2. Feeds 3. Migrate • Migrate + Migrate UI + Migrate D2D
