Migration Drupal 7 to Drupal 8

Will it be possible to easily upgrade from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 or should the whole site be rewritten from scratch?

Sidebar on Views pages with photo and text

There are some Views defined, e.g. search results, FAQ. I need to display sidebar that has:

1. Image field
2. Text

How to add these fields to views? Should I just add header or footer? But the only possibilities are: rendered entity, messages, result summary, result summary with tokens, text area, unfiltered text, view area.

Of course I can add these fields in .tpl.php templates but image and text should be managed in admin panel.

admin pages & drush are super slow, AJAX HTTP request terminated abnormally, StatusText: error

We're running version 7.34 on a GoDaddy CentOS VPS, sans CPANEL (in other words no support other than just connectivity).

Every time I try to manually run the check updates for module updates I get this:

Checking available update data

Error checking available update data.
Please continue to the error page

Installation of CKEditor and CKEditor vs. WYSIWYG

Below is some clarification for users to help understand what goes where as there are similar folder names for different items AND some clarification of using the CKEditor module vs. the WYSIWYG module with CKEditor set as the editor, as there has been confusion for years and just wanted to do my part in trying to let people keep some of the hair on their head:

Aligning various editable field types

Hi All,

I need some help please, I've been researching this for a few days now...

i would like to build a form that has 4 sections.
Each section would have 5 rows (with a title for each), each row will have a description (text field) and 4 x dropdown lists (Y, N, N/A).

section 1
title 1 drop1 drop2 drop3 drop4
title 2 drop1 drop2 drop3 drop4
title 3 drop1 drop2 drop3 drop4
title 4 drop1 drop2 drop3 drop4
title 5 drop1 drop2 drop3 drop4

(section 2,3 & 4 would follow as above)

Visual Shortcodes

Does anyone know of a standalone Visual Shortcodes module that will allow editors you to visually pick and modify a shortcode. I bought a theme that incorporates this feature into the theme, but I would like to just have that feature. An example is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_aLu7HAx_Y.
