It was easy!

Ok – I did have help from cafuego, so there’s some bits of the process that were just magic to me.  But once I had access to the environments, I enabled the migrate modules, and followed instructions on drupal.org and hey presto it was done!

I did need to do manual clean up – re position blocks into differently named regions, and recreate some menu items for taxonomy.

I also got stumped for a bit about why I could no longer free tag, but that turned out to be a simple setting change.

There’s still some tweaking to do, and I know that the path to files has changed, so there’s lots of broken images I need to tidy up, but other than that, all seems well.

During his keynote at DrupalCon a couple of weeks back, Dries said the time to move to D8 is now.

He’s right.
