I'm looking to migrate an existing site to Drupal. I have a a content type on the new Drupal site that will eventually hold some 1500 nodes. Of course, I don't want to enter each one in the form on the admin side; I'd like to input them programmatically, from a script.
What I'm wondering is if I can do plain old SQL INSERTS into the node and related tables, and have my nodes ready to use. Assuming I do the inserts correctly, will the nodes just be there when I fire up Drupal? Or will I need to touch some other parts of the site?
Or is there another way, like a module for batch importing?
This is for Drupal 7.
