Weekly Web Updates – January 16, 2019

We are planning our approach to upgrading to WordPress 5. If you have concerns about this upgrade, please let us know by the end of this week so we can incorporate them into our planning.

This release includes a significant change to the editing experience and we want to get feedback from the community before making this change. We have set up a copy of the live site on one of our development machines which you can use while on-campus or using a VPN client. As this is a development copy, it’s not as fast as the live site and you may encounter some glitches or things which didn’t copy over from the live site.

On a separate topic, we launched a new version of the Offices and Services site. Our office and Communications will be working with offices across campus to move them one-by-one from their current Drupal 7 sites into this new Drupal 8 framework and design. A couple of offices are already complete and just waiting on some finishing touches. ITS will be in the next batch of offices to move into this site.
