All of the family are happy and well, and I think Jasper is enjoying having a new baby sister.

Converting from Drupal to WordPress

by Riscy

Well after looking at this site I modified the existing Drupal database to remove all references to the img_assist module. What a pain in the arse that module is, there is no way to easily migrate away from it so I wrote a Perl script to change the tags to <img> tags instead.

use DBI;
my $databasename = “drupal”;
my $servername = “192.168.1.1”;
my $port = “3306”;
my $dsn = “dbi:mysql:$databasename:$servername:$port”;

# set the user and password
my $user = ‘xxxxx’;
my $pass = ‘xxxxx’;

# now connect and get a database handle
my $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, $user, $pass)
or die “Can’t connect to the DB: $DBI::errstr\n”;

my $query1=”Select * from node_revisions LEFT JOIN node ON (node_revisions.nid=node.nid) WHERE node.type=’blog'”;
my $action = $dbh->prepare($query1);
$action->execute();

while (@row = $action->fetchrow()) {
$body=$row[4];
while ($body=~m/\[img_assist\|nid=(\d+)\|.*\]/){
$vid=$row[1];
$width=450;
my $query2=”Select filepath FROM files LEFT JOIN image ON (files.fid=image.fid) WHERE nid=$1 AND image_size=’_original'”;
my $action2= $dbh->prepare($query2);
$action2->execute();
@row2 = $action2->fetchrow();
$body=~s/\[img_assist\|nid=(\d+)\|.*\]/<p style=”text-align: center;”><img src=”$row2[0]” width=”$width”><\/p>/;

($escapequotes=$body)=~s/\’/\’\’/g;
my $query3=”UPDATE node_revisions SET body=’$escapequotes’,teaser=’$escapequotes’ WHERE vid=$vid”;
print “$vid\n”;
my $action3 = $dbh->prepare($query3);
$action3->execute();
}
while ($body=~m/\<img.*src\=\”\?q\=image\/view\/(\d+).*\>/){

$vid=$row[1];
$nid=$1;
$width=450;
my $query2=”Select filepath FROM files LEFT JOIN image ON (files.fid=image.fid) WHERE nid=$nid AND image_size=’_original'”;
my $action2= $dbh->prepare($query2);
$action2->execute();
@row2 = $action2->fetchrow();
$body=~s/\<img.*src\=\”\?q\=image\/view\/$nid.*\>/<img src=”$row2[0]” width=”450″>/;

($escapequotes=$body)=~s/\’/\’\’/g;
my $query3=”UPDATE node_revisions SET body=’$escapequotes’,teaser=’$escapequotes’ WHERE vid=$vid”;
print “$vid\n”;
my $action3 = $dbh->prepare($query3);
$action3->execute();
}
}
print “Finished\n”;

It’s a bit ugly but works, I had to go through twice because some of the tags were using older versions of img_assist, again what a dumb idea. If only the entries had been migrated as the module was updated. Anyway that was done. Then I modified the import script linked at the start of this post to this:

#remove dud characters
UPDATE wordpress.wp_posts SET post_content = REPLACE(post_content, ‘Â’, ”);
UPDATE wordpress.wp_posts SET post_excerpt = REPLACE(post_excerpt, ‘Â’, ”);

I added some extra replacements which fixed any links to old nodes and I also had to include post type ‘blog’ so that all the entries got moved over. I don’t care about pages or stories.

This is by no means a completed product, it works just enough for me to have a WordPress blog running without too much effort. The migration went better on littlefishcreations.com this blog still has almost all the images failing. I might get around to fixing it one day.
