7 things you need to know about Drupal 7 (but were afraid to ask)

Okay, you're probably not afraid to ask. But there are some scary consequences to missing the November 2022 deadline and losing security and platform updates!

  1. The official Drupal 7 end of life deadline is 28 November 2022.
  2. The shift from Drupal 7 to version 9, or 10, is a website rebuild project, and an opportunity to redesign the look and feel, revise content, and even re-platform to another CMS.
  3. Over 571,000 sites need to make the upgrade before the deadline or risk security issues.
  4. We have compiled as much useful information as possible in our Drupal 7 End of life White Paper.
  5. Time is running out and most projects need to kick off in the next two or three months.
  6. There are tangible security risks of not upgrading with unknown impact.
  7. There are a few factors that will drive the time and effort needed in your project - use our risk calculator to work out yours.

There was a time when you could just buy an application, maybe on a CD-ROM if you remember those, install it on your computer and it would just work - forever. Or at least until the computer broke down. So you might ask, given that a website is ‘sort of’ an application, why does it even need support and maintenance?

Website trends - The years ahead

Digital experiences require hardware and that consumes energy. So the first step in ensuring sustainable delivery of those experiences is to look at the hosting. There is a wide range of eco-friendly and carbon neutral options available today and the costs compare well with the rest of the market. With global suppliers such as Amazon Web Services all the way down to niche providers offering environmentally friendly hosting options, there is no excuse for not making this key transition.
