Top 5 Challenges While Migrating To Drupal 8

Top 5 Challenges While Migrating To Drupal 8

Upgrading to Drupal 8 is an essential albeit challenging business decision. As with all big migrations it could lead to temporary loss of productivity and revenue. While it is important to transition to the latest version of Drupal to enhance security and web performance, it does come with its set of roadblocks.

Here’s a quick rundown of the 5 biggest Drupal migration challenges:

  1. During SEO migration, sites are expected to face a dip in rankings and traffic as search engines will take time to update the new index.
  2. Migrating custom modules is a time-consuming task. Not migrating fields created through custom modules will result in content loss.
  3. Rebuilding custom-modules in the Symfony environment is a huge challenge. As there’s no backward compatibility in modules, every single custom module has to be rebuilt.
  4. The template engine in Drupal 8 is Twig. Themes will have to rewritten to make them compatible with the new version.
  5. Care will have to be taken to minimize changes to the information architecture and navigation structure of public facing sites.
