WordPress outage and upgrade 9am-5pm Tuesday 3/12

Posted March 7th, 2013 at 1:54 pm.

On Tuesday, March 12 (during Spring Break), the blog server will be unavailable from 9am-5pm so that Web Services can upgrade WordPress (blogs.brynmawr.edu) to version 3.5 to maintain security and stability, as well as to bring you new features.

It will not be possible to read or update blogs during most of the upgrade window, and blog feeds on the College website will be delayed or display errors. Affected services include College news blogs (eg inside.blogs.brynmawr.edu ), technical documentation (techbar.blogs.brynmawr.edu), the Alumnae Bulletin (bulletin.brynmawr.edu), and so forth.

Deadline to make any changes to blog content: Tuesday, March 12 by 8:59am EDT

Please do NOT attempt to edit your blog, create new blogs, or otherwise make any changes on blogs.brynmawr.edu sites after this time, as your changes will not be preserved.

We expect the upgrade process to be complete by: Tuesday March 12 by 5pm EDT, after which it will be safe to edit.

If you experience any difficulties or have any questions about the upgrade, please contact us via the Help Desk at x7440 or help@brynmawr.edu .

Please see http://techbar.blogs.brynmawr.edu/2013/03/04/whats-new-in-wordpress-3-5/ for a tour of changes and new features in WordPress 3.5

Thank you for your patience, and we hope you enjoy the new features available following the upgrade.
