So here's the thing. Eviscerati.org is currently a Drupal 7 site that makes heavy use of Views and Pages to segment my content into different types (articles, comics, fiction, podcasts). I figure the best way to migrate to D8, given that many of the modules I use aren't converted yet, is to migrate the base database into D8 and find new ways to "build around" that content.
So I set up a test D8 site and imported my D7 database into it. And on a very superficial level, it SEEMS to work. All my content is in there. It doesn't have site navigation or anything useful like that, but the data is in fields in a database on a D8 installation. Great.
The problem is that none of it will show up. When I click on an article (generic drupal 7 article, basically title-image-content) it will only display the title, image, and any comments -- the body text will not display. It's in the post--when I edit the article, everything is there--and when I look in the article content type I can see that the body field is included in the display, and it seems to be configured correctly, but it just doesn't show up.
Does anyone know why?
