Thinking of wordpress because of woocommerce but not sure.

Missing Page Content After Update from 7.14 to 7.44

I upgraded a Drupal site from 7.14 to 7.44 along with several modules. Followed all the steps in UPGRADE.txt including the upgrade.php, cleared the cache and took the site out of maintenance mode.

The home page is complete, but when I click on one of the links in the Navigation bar, I go to that page, it has the right title on it, but the primary content from that page is missing.

When I search in the database, I find the content. Its there, just not displaying. Here is an example
image of a page with missing content:

Adding NEW Modules - Automatic updating of Drupal core is not supported

When attempting to add a NEW module (not trying to do any updates to the Drupal core), I get this error:

Automatic updating of Drupal core is not supported.

I can't find anything about this related to modules. All of the discussions are related to the core and even go as far as to say to delete the contents of your directory and doing a lot of manipulation. This seems to apply to every module I have tried, whether trying to add by URL or from uploading a file.

Again this is for INSTALLING a NEW MODULE only.

Cannot get previously existing webform to advance to the next page anymore.


I seem to be unable to get a webform to advance to the next page anymore. I tried making a new webform and it worked. I might just remake the form, but before I do that, I would like to ask if there is anything else I can try so that I don't have to remake the form if the same issue comes up in the future.

(Edit: By the way, it works if I only select radio buttons from the first question. When I select the radio buttons from the second or third question, that's when it breaks.)


Drupal Open Curriculum Initiative


The objective of this initiative is to create an Open Curriculum for new developers to come into Drupal and get trained in the various aspects of Drupal development. The curriculum is aimed at helping Drupal companies train new recruits in Drupal in a systematic and structured manner. The training is expected to happen through in-class sessions, self-learning, training exercises and finally on-the-job learning. The open curriculum is expected to be a framework that will allow the developers to build an understanding of the technology and then fill in details as they go through the process of training and working on projects.
