Drupal 8 reaches end of life in November 2021. With the deadline fast approaching, we're getting questions from the Drupal community about how this change will affect them. Here's a quick Q&A based on the most frequently asked questions about it.
DrupalCon Europe 2021 is almost here. It is one of the major events in the Drupal community global calendar, and we at Evolving Web are very excited about it. After all, taking part in those gatherings is one of our favourite things about working with Drupal.

Producing relevant, up-to-date online content is a challenge for content managers everywhere. The bigger your content output and the more stakeholders you have involved in the process, the harder it is to keep track of whatever is being created, edited, and published. If this is your use case, what you need is a clear, easily manageable content publication workflow.
As a long-time member of the Drupal community and a co-founder of Evolving Web, I think there's a huge opportunity to leverage Drupal to build a stronger, more plural open source community. Drupal has long led the way in the digital space as a tool to create accessible content and experiences for all kinds of audiences. Being more explicit about our actions to increase the inclusiveness of the community that surrounds Drupal is an important next step.
As you may know, Drupal 8 is reaching end-of-life this year, and Drupal 7 will follow suit by November 2022. For this reason, Evolving Web and Pantheon will join forces for a free technical training called Best Practices for Higher Ed Drupal Migrations on September 2.
We all recognize bad information architecture when we see it on a website. There are some signs that the creators didn't do a great job in terms of content structure and organization:
- Confusing menu labels
- Haphazard topic organization
- Critical information and actions jumbled in with general news and marketing copy
- Site searches that return useless, obsolete information
While it's frustrating to come across these issues on someone else's website, it feels much worse when we realize we've made those mistakes ourselves.
