Trocaire

Award Category 
Drupal Version 
Brief Overview 

Trócaire already had an existing website, built using CMS Made Simple. Despite having decent hardware, and hiring specialized consultants, the site suffered from severe performance issues, and was not as flexible as they would have liked it to be. The decision was taken to switch to Drupal, but there was still the issue of migrating all the existing content, files and users to Drupal. Using the excellent Migrate and Table Wizard modules, created by Mike Ryan and Moshe Weitzman of Cyrve, this task was made much easier. Over 2000 pages, 500+ files, almost 600 taxonomy terms and close to 100 users were successfully migrated across.
