Whether it's all nodes and terms migrated or having no errors on your new site, set your goals and make them happen.

Take inventory
Take Inventory

Do an audit of content, taxonomy term pages, views pages, panels pages, and all custom functionality. This will ensure you’re only bringing over the content and functions you care about.

Prepare and Execute Screen Capture
Prepare and Execute

We generate a Drupal 9 site for you based on your previous foundation. Use that as a base, choose the content you want to migrate, run your migration, and review results. Once you import your content, it’s time work on custom coded elements like look and feel.

Review, Refine, and Review Some More

Keep a close eye on details: Is all your content coming through in the correct fields? Are you seeing any error messages like incorrect file paths? If so, address them early. Then you’re ready to iterate, roll back and reimport until it’s right.
