Over the last few weeks we have been rebuilding DevelopmentArc.com using Drupal as our new platform. Prior to the switch over, we having been running Wordpress and it has been pretty good for the last year or so. Unfortunately, we had purchased a template system that worked well for the launch yet to make it work we had to heavily modify the template and the CSS.
When Wordpress updated to 2.9, this broke all of the tempting systems and the developers had to roll out a new version. This new roll out drastically changed a lot of the files that we had modified, and this caused us a lot of heartache trying to re-build our modifications in the new template framework. We are currently planning a Drupal site for a client and we felt that rebuilding our site in Drupal was the perfect exercise. Small enough to do it between other work and would also free us up from the previous template fiasco since we would be building it from the ground up.
Now that we have ported over to Drupal, our goal is to keep the site in parity to the first one. Hopefully, you won't even tell a difference. But now that we control the entire stack, we hope to roll out new content and updates on a much shorter timeline. That, and we are finally wrapping up our book which has been our main focus for all our work and personal free time. So, enjoy the "new" site and let us know what issues you all have!
