Drupal 5 Migration Complete

By hagrin - Posted on 10 February 2007

In a quick bit of site news, I finally completed my migration to Drupal 5. Not only did I have to update my old 4.x installation, but I also had to get rid of the old Hagrin.com pages that existed on the "fugly" black and orange template. While all the content has been transferred over, many items remain in terms of enhancing the user experience at Hagrin.com. It's been a 4 year process in the making and I'm still nowhere near done as I'm constantly brainstorming new ideas, taking on outside projects and getting wrapped up in my full-time job. However, with this migration finally complete, I do see bigger and better things coming from this domain.

So, if you have any suggestions for what you would like to see added or improved, leave me a comment and let me know.

CMS Switch

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

Due to time restrictions and wanting to be able to focus on actually creating content, I have decided to ditch the custom made CMS (to my sadness) and made the switch to Drupal. You'll notice over the upcoming weeks that I will be tweaking the design and the layout and then hopefully getting some additional writers to add content here.

Up next I have:

  • Create categories/tags and apply them to all the posts
  • Fix the dates on all the posts
  • Figure out a way to redirect all the old links to the new content
  • Add my "articles" to the site as well
  • Fix links on the side and customize the navigation
  • Apply a nicer looking theme or create my own

Obviously, this is a pretty huge list so hopefully I will be able to get it all done within a month or so. Any suggestions, let me know.

Music Collection Online

By hagrin - Posted on 04 August 2006

I have created a process to upload a list of all the music albums I currently own. I will be working on making the page a little more user friendly, but for now, the complete list of albums can be found here. In addition, I quickly changed all the top, bottom, left and right side navigation to PHP includes for more efficient site maintenance (and good programming/scripting obviously). If anyone has any questions, let me know.
