views- contextual filter assistance

Hey all,
I just received a drupal 6.2 site.
The customer want me to create a list of all lecturers by the first letter of their last name.

I have created a content type called 'Faculty profile' there i created the next fields:
* title
*last name
*department

what I want to do is create an exposed filter that will show all the first letters of the lecturres last name.
on clicking one of the letters I will receive a list with all the lecturrers that their last name start with the selected letter.

I tried two approches.

Exporting/Importing Data

I currently have a Drupal 6.38 website. I am building a new website in Drupal 8 and was wondering what the best option would be as far as preserving the data. Should I upgrade the Drupal 6.3 to Drupal 8 and build off that? Or can I export the data off the Drupal 6 site then import into Drupal 8? I'm a noob at this so break it down into laymans terms please.

Upgrading Drupal 6 to Drupal 8

Hi, I'm a bit of a noobie and I can't find any guides that have been able to successfully migrate my Drupal 6 website to Drupal 8. Are there no step-by-step tutorials or even videos that walk you through this? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Totally new to Drupal & programming - need some basic advice and help.

Hi all,

I'm currently in a position where I have an old Drupal 6.38 site that was built for me, by someone else who can no longer work on it. I want to learn Drupal, and other programming skills, so that I can update it to a newer version (7 or 8???), keep it maintained and get to a position whereby I can modify/develop my site whenever I need to.

Locked Out Of Old Account, Cannot Receive New Password

Hi Guys,

I have been given the task of updating an existing website created with drupal, but I am having no luck gaining access.

I have updated the password in phpmyadmin then changing the database settings in user in order to have a new password sent to me via the *mydomain*/user page and 'request new password tab', but receive the error 'Unable to send e-mail. Please contact the site administrator if the problem persists.'.

Below that error it says 'Further instructions have been sent to your e-mail address.' but I receive nothing.
