Upgrading to Drupal 10

If you're considering an upgrade to Drupal 10, the timing couldn't be better. Whether you're currently using Drupal 9 and looking to migrate before its support ends in November 2023 or switching from a different platform, now is the time to make the move. We're already assisting several clients with their migration journey, and we're happy to report that our own website is already running smoothly on Drupal 10.

With a focus on improving usability, accessibility, and security, Drupal 10 provides a host of benefits that make it a must-have for anyone looking to build a new and robust website. Here we'll take a closer look at some of the key reasons why you should consider upgrading to Drupal 10.

Improved Performance

One of the most significant benefits of Drupal 10 is its improved performance. The latest version is designed to be faster and more efficient than its predecessors, making it ideal for large-scale websites that require fast loading times and smooth performance. Drupal 10 comes with a variety of performance enhancements, such as streamlined code, reduced overhead, and optimised caching, that help to ensure your website runs smoothly and quickly.

Enhanced Security

Security is always a top concern when it comes to building and maintaining websites, and Drupal 10 addresses this issue with a range of new security features. The latest version of the CMS includes enhanced password security, improved encryption methods, and stricter security protocols that help to protect your website from potential threats. This can give you peace of mind knowing that your website is secure and protected from hackers and other malicious actors.

Improved Accessibility

Drupal 10 places a strong emphasis on accessibility, making it easier for people with disabilities to use and navigate your website. The latest version includes new accessibility features that help to ensure your website is compliant with accessibility standards and regulations. This can help to improve the user experience for all visitors, regardless of their abilities.

Easier Drupal Upgrades

Upgrading to a new version of a CMS can be a time-consuming and challenging process, but Drupal 10 makes it easier than ever before to upgrade from an earlier version of Drupal. This can help to save time and reduce the risk of errors and issues during the upgrade process as well as reducing the admin overhead of content population or migration!

Better Content Management

Drupal 10 comes with a range of new features and improvements that make content management more intuitive and user-friendly. The latest version includes a new and improved WYSIWYG editor, enhanced media management tools, and streamlined workflows that help to make content creation and management more efficient and effective.
