UP WordPress (sites.up.edu) will be down for maintenance on Wednesday, July 31, from 8 a.m. to approximately 3 p.m. The system will be updated to the newest version of WordPress for improved performance, security, and reliability. During the downtime, some back end systems will also be improved and updated.
With the new version of WordPress comes a new and updated content creation experience. The traditional “what-you-see-is-what-you-get” text editor has been replaced with a new block-based page building editor. This gives you, as a WordPress content creator, more flexibility and control over the look and layout of your site than ever before. For further info please see this excellent primer video on Lynda.com.
If you are a site admin and feel you or your site contributors are not ready to move to the new editor, the “Classic” editor can be restored for you on a site-by-site basis. Please fill out the form below with the full URL of the site to request the Classic editor.
For any questions, concerns, or to request training on using the new editor, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
