To those Drupal users... What plan do you have to move your sites from D6 to D7+/D8? When working with this many sites moving software version forward seems to be really important. Degree of customization fits in here somewhere too. So, I would really like to hear more as I am architecting using D7 right now, but have a WP-MU on my personal server, and for upgrade paths WP seems to win.

>> This is a reminder that there is a Google spreadsheet for WordPress in Higher Education that you can update and share with colleagues at: <http://bit.ly/12nblfc>
>> (Please note: There was another version that was in circulation some time back that is no longer active, so please ignore that URL. <http://bit.ly/fIDFH9>. )
>> Now, here's a challenge. There is also a Drupal in Higher Education sheet at <http://bit.ly/11PIopc>, and a number of schools have listed individual sub sites in separate rows. That increases the length of the sheet, making it appear that Drupal is used in higher education more than is WordPress.
>> So, if you're a competitive type, and you have listed your sub sites as a single multisite instance, perhaps you'll want to find a way to represent your school in a, well, more expansive way.
>> In any case, thanks to everyone for updating this sheet over the past 3-4 years. It's a testament to the amazing use of WordPress in higher education.
