The bridge

I'm going to break one of my personal rules today, and talk for a bit about what I do for a living. I've tried not to do this in the past, not so much out of a concern about being dooced, but more out of a general separation I have always tried to keep between my personal and professional lives. But I'm starting to feel like there are some things that I want to talk about that could actually help some of the communities I've been involved with both personally and professionally. 

At the crossroads

Every once in awhile in my career, I come across a crossroads of sorts.

Drupal 7 Upgrade: Imagefield and Filefield

Just a quick note about another hiccup I've run into with the Drupal upgrade.

For both staticred and other sites hosted on my Drupal install, I've made use of the Imagefield and Filefield CCK modules to provide additional content features.  For example, my portfolio section on staticred.com incudes thumbnail images.

Drupal 7 Upgrade: Ugh, themes.

So, themes. As I mentioned in my previous post, this is one of my big roadblocks in upgrading to Drupal 7.  I have 6 sites that run off of the same Drupal instance, each with its own custom theme (and in many cases, variations on themes within those sites). A conversion guide has been created, but with 53 different things to pay attention to, it's quite the daunting read.  Of course, not everything in that guide applies to me; however, much of it does.
