Altnews Web Site Drupal Software Upgraded

Submitted by Webmaster on Sat, 21/04/2007 - 23:40

Webmaster is tickled pink to be able to announce a successful UPGRADE of the Drupal software driving this site from version 4.3 (anno 2004) to the latest version 5.1.

The upgrade process had to follow a strict route: From 4.3 to 4.6, followed by some extensive testing and checking , then from 4.6 to 4.7, testing and checking again to finally go from 4.7 to 5.1

Some modules have had to be turned off. The old Weblink module for example could not be upgraded and weblink nodes that are still current will be manually upgraded. A 5.1 version of the Events module caused some difficulties with the old events database tables and had to be temporarily disabled.

The promise of much enhanced functionality and features possible with the latest version of the Drupal software has made the process all very much worth while.

Over the next few weeks we'll be doing lots of tweaking, pruning and polishing and we have plans for some great features. Let us know what you would like to see here on Altnews.

We are also pretty certain that we have missed some issues and ask for your cooperation to alert us to any problem you may find. Simply fill in the comment form below this post and click on 'Post comment'. Thank you.

We hope you will enjoy the new web site.
