Drupal 7 is Still Supported

Earlier this month, we received an email claiming that version 7 of Drupal isn’t supported anymore. That claim came as part of trying to get people to hire the emailer to do an upgrade to Drupal 9. Here are the full contents of the email:

No Official Support For Drupal 7 or 8
Upgrade To Drupal 9 Today

It has been officially announced that Drupal 7 is no longer receiving official support from the Drupal community. This means that while the software may still function, securities updates and technical fixes are no longer provided by the core development unit.

The solution is to upgrade your website to Drupal 9, the latest version, because:

1) Drupal 9 offers enhanced performance and securities.

2) Drupal 9 offers a conversational UI and user-friendliness.

3) Drupal 9 has better programmatical improvements, resulting in better speed.

4) Drupal 9 offers ecommerce empowerment. If you have…

In reality, in June, it was announced that support for Drupal 7 would continue until January 5, 2025.

Beyond that falsehood, you can’t do an upgrade from Drupal 7 to a newer version, you have to do a migration.

Also, Drupal 9 was superseded as the latest version of Drupal in December of last year. Support for Drupal 9 ends in November.

Support for Drupal 8 ended in November of 2021 so you should have already upgraded to a newer version.

If you are still running Drupal 7, you should make sure you have upgraded to the latest version of that.
