A simpler version of the University's Drupal web content management platform
Drupal Lite is a simpler version of the University's Drupal Enterprise platform. It is geared for anyone who is not a developer but would like to create a small or medium-sized site. Drupal Lite 7 and Drupal Lite 8 will continue to be available and supported for the foreseeable future.
Transition from Drupal Lite 7 to Drupal Lite 8
Drupal Lite 8, the newest version of Drupal Lite, will soon be available for the University community. If you already own a site built in Drupal Lite 7, you have two choices:
Re-create your site in Drupal Lite 8
This will give you the most flexibility in terms of timing
Wait for the OIT Drupal Team to migrate your site from Drupal Lite 7 to Drupal Lite 8
This migration will happen in mid-2020
The OIT Drupal team will reach out to you shortly before the migration
More details will be announced as the migration plan is finalized
Maintained and fully supported by the University
Sites are automatically backed up each night
Transitions to Drupal Lite 8 can be performed by the OIT Drupal Team
