Moving from Drupal to WordPress

After struggling for quite a while to get Drupal upgraded to a later version I simply gave up. Sad really, as I quite liked using Drupal.

However, with some help from Alex Blanc who found the necessary scripts, I migrated from Drupal to WordPress. It wasn’t pain free, but it was straightforward enough, thank goodness.

Now, as soon as I can get all of the user details into the WordPress database then all of you who had signed up to my Drupal site should also find yourselves signed up here. What I now need to do is move the files over that I was referencing, build a couple of pages to allow them to be downloaded and finally bring in the missing images…

Hopefully it will be done before Christmas 06!

    Well… today we also moved Matt’s blog off the birdseye server where it has been for the last four years. It was an earlier version to mine, but the same scripts seemed to work pretty well.

    Does anyone know if it’s possible to migrate a drupal 5.3 installation into a new version of WordPress? I can’t find information on this anywhere. I’m getting pretty desperate.

    Have you seen this:

    It relates to an older version of Drupal, but the steps are similar enough. I am a little surprised that there isn’t a pre-configured importer for wordpress yet, but then again as you’ll soon see, it isn’t a pain free or simple task. Depending on exactly how much content you have got in Drupal, you might consider simply manually copying and pasting. If your Drupal site is extensive, however, then this is not going to be an option.
