Sunday Morning Maintenance

On Sunday, February 24th, during downtime we will be changing the url of our WordPress instance from “sites.middlebury.edu” to “sites.middlebury.edu.”

The following message was sent to WordPress site owners on Thursday, the 22nd:

Thank you to everyone who participated in our survey on the change from “blogs” to “sites.”

On Sunday, February 24th, during downtime we will be changing the url of our WordPress instance from “sites.middlebury.edu” to “sites.middlebury.edu.”

What you need to do: NOTHING
This change only affects the url in the address bar of a browser, you do not need to move any content in your site.

Will your links still work? YES
We will be setting up a redirect so that anyone trying to visit a site using “sites.middlebury.edu” will be redirected to “sites.middlebury.edu.”

Can I still track visits to my site using Google Analytics? YES
Last January we made a change to have all Middlebury web applications crawled using one Google Analytic account. You will simply need to add the “sites.middlebury.edu” address in your segments.

Will this change my site or url if I use another address? Like middlab.middlebury.edu or southchinasea.org? NO
Sites that have their own url, their own subdomain, will not be affected by this change.

Please send questions about this change to Joe Antonioli.

    We are sorry for the delay but we did not implement the change this morning, as planned. We are discussing scheduling the change for next Sunday and will follow up once a decision has been made.
