Drupal 5.x to 8.x upgrade experiences / advice ?

Is it likely that a Drupal 5.x to 8.x upgrade will require major changes or even a major restructuring of an existing website, or is there an upgrade tool which will make the 5.x to 8.x transition relatively easy?

I've found some 6.x and 7.x to 8.x information, but no experiences starting from 5.x

I understand that this is a rather general question, but thanks for experience remarks & advice related to a 5.x to 8.x upgrade (I'm new to Drupal).

Prevent detecting on which version of Drupal web site is running

I developed Chrome extension that is fingerprinting Drupal websites.

If you going to secure exact version of Drupal engine
then use free extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/drupal-validate-check-ver/lafmafacfnblkahhfflblanbdmpkdoid

If the version is determined then you neew to hide everything that can let extension know the version and hide it.
I will be very appreciated if you can leave your feedback.

Therefore, the portal hosts a highly varied, heavy content: various health-related articles for the patients to scan through, sections where companies/clinics/doctors can promote their medical devices and services (either free of charge or not), announcements of jobs in the health industry, medical news and the list can go on.

Using Drupal as a support portal for a FB community

Hi chaps,

I'm having feelings about building a project using Drupal and I thought I'd better ask the community before getting hands on, so I'd basically love to hear opinions. Quick background:

Using Image Maps with Links and Anchors


I was hoping to learn about the possibility of putting multiple links in an image (an image map) within a text body in drupal. Usually, our text pages have links to anchors in the 'Footnotes' section. However, these sections do not have URLs of their own, and all research I've done on the subject so far suggests that each link needs a separate URL. Is there a way to make this work with the system of links and anchors already in place? Below are the co-ordinates and the code which I found online.
