CenterNetworks – Drupal to WordPress

CenterNetworks, a great blog for those interested in social networking, Web 2.0, and social media has switched from Drupal to WordPress, and while they had a few problems in their transition, for all intents and purposes it was a success. They are working on releasing details of the conversion soon, but I wanted to cover their move today, as I wanted to congratulate them on changing to what should be a platform more aligned with their needs.

The changes are now complete. This weekend I will share details of the changes both on the front and back-end. Everything should work and commenting should be easier than before – give it a try and please let me know if you run into any issues. I will be working to correct lots of small issues with URLs and other links.

Welcome to WordPress CenterNetworks.

Everyone should keep checking back on the site for details about their move, as well as the rest of their great articles.

    wow – thanks for the compliment! I can tell you that I’ve been up a good bit of the night fixing urls and it’s nowhere near done. But outside of that, the conversion looks good.

    Interesting move. I use wordpress for my blog, but have been looking into Drupal since I might need more community features for a couple of projects I’m working on.

    I have to say that Drupal has a strong community-building heritage, but from what I’ve seen, wordpress is quickly catching up. I recently notice buddypress, which is social network tool build on top of wordpress. Although it’s still at its infancy, it’s quite promising. Plus, WordPress has a big advantage in term of ease of use, and a large community of developers.

    It’s going to be interesting to see what kind of tools become available in the next few years to help ease the transition from one platform to another — I’d think there are going to be a growing number of bloggers/companies want to transition from Drupal to WordPress, or vice versa due to their specific needs.

    That is very nice from business and friendship point of view. All of us should have great opportunity to make friends, customers and share our reviews on different topics through this….
