Thingy Ma Jig - Now brought to you by Drupal 7

Drupal 7 Logo

So, Drupal 7 is out. Have you heard? It was a bit of a quiet launch really. ;-)

When it came to upgrading by blog, I decided (eventually) that I needed to do a cleanup as the Database had been upgraded from 4.7, to 5 and then to 6 - with many modules added and removed in between. New year, new drupal, new blog (kinda)!

It's also a good excuse to test out that some of the modules I maintain actually work in Drupal 7 (such as Page Title and GlobalRedirect). It's also a kick up the arse to get Relevant Content ported to Drupal 7!

Theme:

The theme was ported over relatively easily - although it's now using the Boron base theme to make it HTML 5 (another new whizz-bang thing). Mostly it was a matter of remembering to change a lot of instances where a variable got printed out to use the new render() function instead.

Content:

The content was easily ported over using the following MySQL:

Nodes

INSERT INTO [NEW_DB].node
SELECT n.nid, n.vid, n.type, 'und', n.title, n.uid, n.status, n.created, n.changed, n.comment, n.promote, n.sticky, n.tnid, n.translate

SELECT p.*
FROM [OLD_DB].page_title p
LEFT JOIN [NEW_DB].page_title p2 ON p.type = p2.type AND p.id = p2.id
WHERE p2.id IS NULL;

Meta Tags

Unfortunately, at the time of writing, the Metatags module is not available and Nodewords has not been updated. The current "hack" solution is to have two fields (field_meta_description and field_meta_keywords), add then to the node and term 'bundles' and just use SQL to get the content into them. Then, using a custom module, embed them into the header manually (using hook_html_head_alter).

Nodes

INSERT INTO [NEW_DB].field_data_field_meta_description
SELECT
  'node', n.type, 0, n.nid, n.vid, 'und', 0,

  'plain_text'
FROM [OLD_DB].node n
INNER JOIN [OLD_DB].nodewords nw ON nw.type = 5 AND nw.id = n.nid AND nw.name = 'description'
WHERE n.type IN ('blog', 'page');

Terms

INSERT INTO [NEW_DB].field_data_field_meta_description

  SUBSTRING_INDEX(SUBSTRING_INDEX(SUBSTR(SUBSTR(nw.content, LOCATE('value', nw.content)), 8), '"', 2), '"', -1),
  'plain_text'
FROM [OLD_DB].term_data t
INNER JOIN [OLD_DB].nodewords nw ON nw.type = 6 AND nw.id = t.tid AND nw.NAME = 'description';
INSERT INTO [NEW_DB].field_data_field_meta_keywords
SELECT
  'taxonomy_term', 'tags', 0, t.tid, t.tid, 'und', 0,
  SUBSTRING_INDEX(SUBSTRING_INDEX(SUBSTR(SUBSTR(nw.content, LOCATE('value', nw.content)), 8), '"', 2), '"', -1),

  'plain_text'
FROM [OLD_DB].term_data t
INNER JOIN [OLD_DB].nodewords nw ON nw.type = 6 AND nw.id = t.tid AND nw.NAME = 'keywords';

Modules:

I also stripped back some functionality to make the site easier to maintain, but pretty much all of what I needed worked directly from checkout. I'm still using Gravatar, Flickr, Views and Panels (I still need to configure the panels).

Issues?

I found an odd issue with Drupal core. I didn't want my comments to "permalink" to comment URL's - I wanted them to anchor to their point on the page. So I just thought I'd alter the entity info and switch the callback used for the URI. This caused an error where the Comment module had not completely been updated to the new Drupal 7 API. See Issue 1027936.

Also, as mentioned above, Nodewords/Metatags are currently unavailable so I had to "hack" together my own module using hidden fields. Here is the code that enables me to get Meta description and keywords on nodes and terms + frontpage:

function MODULE_html_head_alter(&$head) {
  if (($obj = menu_get_object('node', 1)) || ($obj = menu_get_object('taxonomy_term', 2))) {
    $description = isset($obj->field_meta_description['und'][0]['safe_value']) ? $obj->field_meta_description['und'][0]['safe_value'] : '';
    $keywords    = isset($obj->field_meta_keywords['und'][0]['safe_value']) ? $obj->field_meta_keywords['und'][0]['safe_value'] : '';
  }
  elseif (drupal_is_front_page()) {
    $description = 'FRONTPAGE DESCRIPTION';
    $keywords = 'FRONTPAGE KEYWORDS';
  }
 
  if (!empty($description)) {
    $head['tmj_tweaks_description'] = array(
      '#type' => 'html_tag',
      '#tag' => 'meta',
      '#attributes' => array('name' => 'description', 'content' => $description),
    );
  }
  if (!empty($keywords)) {
    $head['tmj_tweaks_keywords'] = array(
      '#type' => 'html_tag',
      '#tag' => 'meta',
      '#attributes' => array('name' => 'keywords', 'content' => $keywords),
    );
  }
}

This just pulls the node or term object from the Menu API, grabs the values from the field (or the hardcoded frontpage values) and pushes them into the head as html tag elements.

During the upgrade I also submitted some patches to the GeSHi module (which powers the code highlighting on this site) and the Gravatar module (which powers the user profile icons on comments).

So far, I'm really liking Drupal 7 - it's shaping up to be a very nice release!
