Our guide to Drupal 7 End of Life (EOL)

We previously posted about the release of Drupal 9 and discussed the Drupal 7 platform reaching End of Life (EOL) and going out of official support in the future.

Originally set for November 2021, it was recently announced that this has been extended by a year to November 2022 in light of the impact that COVID-19 has had on many organisations' priorities and budgets during 2020.

Following on from that post, as well as some recent discussions with a number of our clients about the same topic, we've put together a list of FAQs about Drupal 7's End of Life. These aim to answer the most common questions that many Drupal 7 site owners have about the platform's EOL as well as providing advice for those who are keen to plan ahead for the move to Drupal 9 ahead of the end of 2022. The page also explains the expected situation for those who are unlikely to be able to move away from Drupal 7 by November 2022.

The FAQs page can be found here. We'll continue to update and add to it as more information is available and/or as more questions arise.

Should you want to find out more about Drupal 7 End of Life, what it means for your site and how we might be able to help, please contact us for an informal discussion or, for existing Adaptive clients, speak to your Account Manager who will be more than happy to answer any further questions you might have.
