Why Migrate From WordPress to Drupal?

What is the benefit of Drupal?

Migrating from WordPress to Drupal offers numerous advantages that can significantly enhance your website's performance and capabilities. Here are four main reasons why you should consider making the switch:

Enhanced Security

Drupal is renowned for its robust security features, making it a preferred choice for organizations that require a secure online presence. Unlike WordPress, which relies heavily on third-party plugins for added functionality, Drupal's core includes many built-in features that are tightly integrated and frequently updated to address security vulnerabilities.

Scalability and Performance

Drupal's architecture is built to handle high-traffic websites with ease. This scalability ensures your site can grow and manage increasing traffic without compromising performance. Drupal's modular design allows you to add features and scale up your site as needed, whether you are a small business or a large enterprise.

Customizability and Flexibility

Drupal offers unparalleled flexibility with its extensive range of modules and customization options. This allows you to create unique, tailored solutions that meet your specific business needs. Whether you need a complex multi-site setup, advanced user permissions, or intricate content workflows, Drupal can handle it. The platform's hook system and API integrations enable developers to extend functionality without hacking core files, ensuring that your customizations are maintainable and upgradable.

Improved Content Management

Drupal's highly sophisticated content management system offers advanced features for managing and organizing your content more efficiently. This results in a more streamlined workflow and better user experience. Features like custom content types, views, and taxonomies allow you to organize and display content in diverse ways that best suit your audience's needs.

Erickson Senior Living, a prominent provider of retirement community services, sought to elevate the online presence of their publication, Erickson Tribune.

Inclind facilitated the migration of Erickson Tribune's website from WordPress to Drupal, ensuring a seamless transition to align with Erickson's primary website. This migration aimed to enhance the website's functionality, security, and overall user experience. By consolidating the Tribune's content within Erickson's main site, we provided a unified and streamlined platform for their audience.
Our team meticulously integrated Erickson Tribune's new Drupal site with Erickson's main site theme, maintaining brand consistency across all digital touchpoints.

Inclind continues to provide dedicated support to Erickson Senior Living, addressing any technical issues, updates, and enhancements required for the Tribune's website. Our ongoing partnership ensures that the website remains up-to-date, secure, and optimized for the best user experience.
In addition to the migration, Inclind implemented advanced analytics and SEO strategies to boost the Tribune's visibility and engagement. Our analytics team worked closely with Erickson to track user behavior, identify trends, and optimize content for better search engine rankings. This data-driven approach helps Erickson understand their audience better and continuously improve their online presence.

Steps to Migrate from WordPress to Drupal

A straightforward but proven process.

Migrating your website from WordPress to Drupal involves several critical steps. Here's an overview of the process to give you an idea of what to expect:

Step 1: Backup Your WordPress Site

Start by creating a complete backup of your existing WordPress site, including all files, databases, and configurations. Use reliable backup tools or plugins to ensure that you have a secure and accessible copy of all your data. This step is crucial to prevent data loss and to provide a fallback option if something goes wrong during the migration process.

Step 2: Set Up a Development Environment

Create a development environment for Drupal to migrate without affecting your live site. This could be a local development setup or a staging server that mirrors your production environment. Setting up a development environment allows you to test the migration process and make necessary adjustments before deploying changes to your live site, minimizing downtime and disruptions.

Step 3: Content Migration

Use the Drupal Migrate module to transfer content from WordPress to Drupal. This includes posts, pages, media files, and user data. Carefully map your WordPress content types to their corresponding Drupal structures to ensure a smooth transition. It is often beneficial to migrate a small subset of your content first to identify and resolve any issues before migrating the entire site.

Step 4: Theme and Design Migration

Rebuild your site's design in Drupal. If you have a custom theme, update it to be compatible with Drupal's theming system, which may involve significant changes. Alternatively, you can take this opportunity to refresh your site's design with a new theme that leverages Drupal's capabilities. Ensure that all design elements and functionalities are replicated or improved upon in the new environment.

Step 5: Module and Plugin Integration

Replace WordPress plugins with Drupal modules that offer similar or enhanced functionality. Research and select Drupal modules that best match the features of your existing WordPress plugins. Some functionality might require custom development to achieve the same results, so be prepared to adapt and find Drupal-native solutions.

Step 6: Testing and Quality Assurance

Conduct thorough testing to ensure all content, design elements, and functionalities work as expected. Perform user acceptance testing (UAT) with a small group of stakeholders to confirm that the site meets their requirements. Check for broken links, missing images, formatting issues, and any discrepancies in functionality between the old and new sites.

Step 7: Launch and Monitor

Once testing is complete, launch the Drupal site by updating DNS settings and making it live. Plan the launch during a low-traffic period to minimize user impact. Continuously monitor the site for performance and address any issues that arise post-launch. Use analytics and monitoring tools to track site performance, identify potential problems, and gather user feedback to ensure a smooth post-launch experience.
