After two weeks of swearing, mumbling, installing, deleting, reinstalling, tweaking, swearing some more, leaving to drink a beer, coming back and reinstalling, purging, clearing caches, swearing, going offline for a few days, returning, reinstalling, upgrading, purging, clearing, tweaking, reinstalling, swearing some more… I decided that Drupal8 just isnt quite ready for me.
I really, really wanted to upgrade to Drupal8 but some of the features of Drupal that make this blog experience so pleasant just dont exist yet in this early Drupal 8.0.1 version of Droop.
/me cries into my beer
So, reluctantly, i decided to rollback to my Drupal7 backup and am now back online and sighing a big happy sigh of relief.
Things I liked about Drupal 8:
Things I didnt like:
Too many of the modules I use in D7 just do not work on D8 yet — and I stress the “YET”
So, in a nutshell, I found myself upgrading to Droop8 purely because it was available rather than because it was the right choice! Currently, Drupal8 is not the right choice for me. It’s time to leave it to bed-in a little, and revisit in a few months.
My recommendation – Let Drupal 8 mature a little before dipping your toes in the water!
