Possibly the most challenging theme job ever undertaken by AIP, the design for the new Al-Jazirah site was based on a RTL (right-to-left) Wordpress theme which needed to be converted to a Drupal theme while retaining all of its bells and whistles (sliding scrollbars, slideshows, etc).
In 2010, ImNotObsessed.com became a first for us - the first site ever migrated by AIP from WordPress to Drupal, and then back to WordPress again.
After 3 years on the Drupal platform, owner/editor Vera Sweeney decided to scale back on advanced community-oriented functionality and move back to a more direct blogging approach. While the community features have been removed and some minor differences do exist, we took pains to retain her custom Drupal Theme when migrating it to the WordPress platform. The resulting site retained the exact same look as its predecessor.
Another happy WordPress-to-Drupal migration, Celebrity Baby Scoop is (you guessed it) the place to go for up-to-the-minute information on celebrity babies, and celebrities who have them. The site features a growing community of self-styled User Groups, a custom AJAX-driven Slideshow demonstrating the power of jQuery, and an expectancy calendar indicating all the upcoming due-dates of the stars. Design by August Afternoon Designs.
Back when it was still called "The Bastardly", As If Productions handled MoeJackson's conversion from WordPress to Drupal, the platform they remain with today. This popular celebrity gossip blog was once listed by MAXIM among the best examples of "pervarazzi" websites. Make no mistake: Moe and Jackson do not idolize their celebrities; they prefer them skewered. Or naked. Or skewered, naked.
Another blog made the transition from WordPress to Drupal with the completion of this migration job for The Rad Report. Custom features on this site included a dropdown archive search block and browsable thumbnail galleries.
AIP did a live database and platform migration for the popular site dlisted.com when blogger Michael K decided to move from WordPress to Drupal. The customized theme is based on "Amadou" by Jay Wolf, with art by Mark Robinson.
