I have had to relocate this blog a couple of times over the past few months, and every time I try to make it better. Sure, I have not actually posted anything since 2009 but there have been a few appreciative comments telling me at least some of the content is still useful, and a few things I have been struggling with have inspired me to reboot the blog.
Drupal 8 was released a few weeks ago which means Drupal 6 (which drove my blog) is officially no longer supported. Having basically lost all interest in Drupal, the time taken to migrate servers feels like an incredible waste of time just to have a database-driven blog; but I recently discovered Hugo, a static site generator with a number of nice themes and an impressive list of features. So I figured it is time to ditch Drupal and return to publishing content in a static site. This post details the issues I had in the process of converting my site from Drupal to Hugo.
