September 7, 2011 in Maintenance, Service Notice
Maggie and I are happy to report that we have successfully migrated OpenCUNY to our new server. Following the migration this past Friday, we were finally able to upgrade WordPress to its latest version and update all plugins and themes to their newest versions. A few older themes and plugins had no updates available and, as a result, may no longer work with the newest version of WordPress. Please contact Maggie or I if you find a theme/plugin no longer working. In almost every case we should be able to recommend a newer alternative:
We’ll be in touch shortly with information on our other 2011-12 OpenCUNY Initiatives. In the meantime, you should already be experiencing faster load time, more plugins and themes to choose from, and increased upload limits.
