end of life

Dustin Hickle's article titled “Drupal 7 is End of Life. What Are the Options?Unleashed Technologies addresses the imminent end-of-life (EOL) scenario for Drupal 7, emphasizing its significant implications for website owners and developers. Drupal 7 is scheduled to reach its EOL in January 2025, and the article underscores the critical importance of recognizing the potential security risks associated with its continued use. Although Drupal 7 will continue to function past this date, the absence of security updates poses a significant threat, leaving websites vulnerable to cyberattacks. To mitigate these risks, the article offers valuable insights into available migration options, including transitioning to Drupal 10, or other CMS’s exploring custom solutions, all aimed at ensuring website security and growth.

The article outlines Drupal 10 as the most logical choice for organizations currently relying on Drupal 7. Drupal 10 presents numerous enhancements, such as improved caching, enhanced security features, and a more user-friendly administrative interface. However, it acknowledges that smaller websites might opt for WordPress due to its simplicity and the availability of a wide range of plugins and themes. Additionally, organizations with specific requirements can explore headless CMS solutions or other custom CMS options, ensuring they select the most suitable pathway to secure and advance their websites.
