I am desperately trying to migrate a Drupal 6 (latest version) site. As it turned out the migration process from previous versions is very complicated and time consuming compared to other cms solutions like Wordpress etc. As a graphic and webdesigner I love Drupal structure and the great theme options. I guess I was wrong that also non developers could work with Drupal. And I am also consider moving away from Drupal.
1) So here's my problem: The core update from D6 to D7 is running fine. However I am unable to migrate 1x CCK field to Drupal 7 using the cck-7.x-2.x-dev package. This is due to some missing modules. Furthermore I didn't define any additional input formats. All my nodes are set back to the default plain text format.
Under Home » Administration » Structure » Migration field, the UNAVAILABLE FIELDS says:
Missing field module: 'filefield'. This field cannot be migrated. Missing widget: The 'linkimagefield_widget' widget is not available for the field_blog_image field, it will be set to the default widget. Missing formatter: The 'Blog-Image_linkimage' formatter used in 3 view modes for the field_blog_image field is not available, these displays will be reset to the default formatter. Missing formatter: The 'image_plain' formatter used in 4 view modes for the field_blog_image field is not available, these displays will be reset to the default formatter.
How do I migrate a CCK field if the module is no longer available? I've worked through the drupal.org migration documentation, the Readme.txt as well numerous threads. There are some SQL and Code hacks but I am not comfortable with that. What can I do?
Thanks for your help.
