Migration from Dada to Drupal
A mostly feature-complete Drupal 6 migration script has also been made, which imports articles, features, comments, media, and sets up redirects from dada urls like /newswire/display/2323/index.php to /node/498376, thus not breaking old urls. It can be found here:
A drupal-4.7 migration script has also been made, look at: http://lists.indymedia.org/pipermail/imc-drupal-dev/2007-February/0216-c4.html
Table of content :
Dada has an objectid in tables like articles and features, these are different ids.
The newswire table
Is it worth using CCK to recreate Dada fields like the two uri, the licence...
Submitted = 0 means?
Dispalayable = 0 - hidden , 1 - not-hidden?
Drop the rating?
Has a language field - i18n module (not for this site, but others)
mime_type - text/html text/x-html if html pages rather than plain text
Similar format to article table. Same node import, just drop in additional taxonomy.
Import as page nodes.
OK to loose the summary? Or should it be put at the top of the page?
Fun fun fun... looks like stored just by file name, so maybe able to import into the upload module easily!?
mime_class: image - use image module?
parent_class: article, feature...
Maybe auto importing with nodes... and using image with upload module.
Stuff like 'alignment' will just have to be lost
Loosing some of the exif data may even be a security bonus!
Just loose this?
hasn't been used in this case, looks like a custom node, or collecting data in the body would be in order if it had been - different topic of course.
loadsa spam users
map objectid to uid for articles etc.
password hashing looks the same
