Hello there,

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.

Any kind of advice would be great?

Did you turn on the core modules for File and Image? The filefield and imagefield modules are now part of core.
