I have a user generated content site which is currently on a Drupal 5.7 (to which it was transfered from a home built cms). I need to modernize the CMS with the upgrade to the latest version.
The site runs on a custom theme and has plenty of modules that are not working which needs to be fixed.
The main goal is to safely transfer everything so that it's a lot easier to manage.
I have decided to go into a little bit detail about the project and what needs to be done so you can better understand the needs.
Also I would like you to know that I will write very specific tasks and try to make sure that you have the most explanation for the work to be done.
1. Right now I have a website at wwww.cultmetal.com (this is a site where users register and upload pictures and information about music albums for metal/rock music)
2. What I need is to start completely fresh. I want to back up all the databases and information and install the latest version of Drupal. This is NOT just an upgrade but a complete fresh install of Drupal to made look exactly like the new site.
The usual workflow of the site is:
User can create a piece of content
This content can have multiple images and a variety of field (same as on current site)
Non-registered users can search and view content
Commenting is enabled through disqus (but I might change that to Facebook)
The new install must have the exact same look (design) which is a modified greenNblack theme.
The home page uses Panels and I want to be able to modify the code of the nodes in the future.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
