As the IndieCommerce team begins to transition participating stores’ sites to the Drupal 7 platform, booksellers can keep up on all upgrade details by visiting the newly unveiled IndieCommerce informational site, as well as by signing up for targeted upgrade-specific IndieCommunication news updates.
IndieCommerce’s newly created informational site is devoted exclusively to upgrade materials that will aid members in the transition. The site features information including a breakdown of the upgrade basics, a timeline of events, training and support reminders, an ever-growing FAQ, and an e-mail archive of IndieCommerce communications. The site also gives users an opportunity to test out new Drupal 7 themes with the “Switch Theme” function.
The IndieCommerce team has also developed a short survey to identify booksellers’ insights and concerns as the migration to Drupal 7 takes place. IndieCommerce users are asked to take a moment to fill out the survey.
As the upgrade progresses, it is increasingly important that members are informed of new action items and changes to the interface. Stores that haven’t already should sign up to receive the upgrade-specific communication. Any upgrade-related questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
