Drupal 7 comes with a long and illustrious history. Thousands of small and enterprise-level organizations trust Drupal 7 to power their websites. Drupal 7 brought forward 11,000 contributed modules, 600 themes, and 200 contributions.
It is rated as the most popular Drupal version, with almost half of the live sites running on it. The most recent Drupal usage statistics released on March 26, 2022, projected that 500,000 websites are still on Drupal 7.
Have you wondered why so many organizations are on Drupal 7?
Drupal 7 users have mentioned reasons to hang around the version because they are ‘unsure of stability and the fear of ‘what might go wrong without Drupal 7?’
Well yes, Drupal 7 served for almost a decade but now it's time to migrate from Drupal 7 to the latest Drupal versions (Drupal 9/10) that are being introduced with incredible features and functionalities. We guarantee that there is nothing that you can do on Drupal 7 that you can’t do on Drupal 9 and Drupal 10.
Initially, the end of life for Drupal 7 was November 2021. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, this timeline was extended to November 28, 2022 and then to November 1, 2023. The Drupal.org community will take any further extension decision only in July 2023.
