I spent this weekend upgrading my "non-personal" websites from Drupal 9 to Drupal 10. There are four of them which include socPub, CMS Report, INFOTECH Pub, and After Work Pub. These websites share some of its content from one another using the Domain contributed module. Managing four websites under one database and one Drupal install provides some advantages but also presents some unique challenges. Luckily, the beta version of the Domain module was developed enough to not present too many upgrade obstacles for me.
I also had some Views and Theme issues with this upgrade to Drupal 10. The Upgrade Status module had warned me of the compatibility issues with the News+ theme. I've been using this theme ever since I rebranded the primary website as socPub on Drupal 8. With the Drupla 10 update, the theme wouldn't fully render due to how it was tied into Views. The Views were "corrupt" enough that I couldn't even edit them and I concluded I had no choice but to delete them and start over.
While I've been thinking for awhile that it's time to go with a new theme for these websites, I wasn't ready to really dig deep into a new theme given my time constraints. So, instead I decided to purchase the latest version of NEWS+ from More Than Themes, install the new theme, and synchronize the needed configuration changes back into my own site. So far, everything seems to be working fine since installing the newly configured Views and the new version of the theme.
Upgrades in Drupal continue to promise to get easier in the future. I hope so, because more and more I'm starting to feel like I'm getting too old to do these upgrades as a "one person show". However, looking back at the many Drupal updates I've done since Drupal 4.6...I'll take this update as another win for me and my sites' visitors.
