We are considering to migrate an exiting website to Drupal: www.rkmission-shivanahalli.org The website has simple static content which I believe is not a big deal to migrate to Drupal.
However, there is one requirement which is pretty unconventional and not many websites have it. The archives feature. What we have been doing is, since currently the website is only collection of html files, we pick the whole web folder of current edition and place it into archives folder of the website and link the new website to the index.html page of that archived folder. We also have a link to get back to the current edition from the archives section.
Please see this link for more details, the archives page of current edition: http://www.rkmission-shivanahalli.org/archives.html
One of the edition from archives page will have a link like: http://www.rkmission-shivanahalli.org/Archives/AUG_2006/index.html.
Now I am not very sure how to achieve this using Drupal. Is there any direct way to do this? Or, any modules which does it on my behalf? Or, do I have to modify any source files etc.?
Thank you for any suggestions.
PS: This is a mirror of the question already asked in Drupal forums: http://drupal.org/node/1884930
