- Drupal 7
- Responsive design
GR2 was a small project that already had a design and content. My goal was to upgrade it from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 and make it responsive. While upgrading, I made a few design tweaks and created a 'contact us' form.
For this project, I used AdaptiveTheme, a contributed base theme offered on drupal.org. AdaptiveTheme is great for handling the heavy lifting of making a site responsive, particularly at that time when responsive themes where not so common.
I created a custom subtheme of AdaptiveTheme to integrate the exisitng look and feel and migrated the content from the old site manually, the most efficient solution in that case.
Note: On my last visit, in July of 2019, I observed that it was no longer a Drupal site, but Wordpress. My speculation is that stakeholders, over time, realized that Drupal was a more robust solution than required for this site.
