Blogs Network Upgraded to WordPress 4.0.1

The UW Blogs Net­work has been upgraded to Word­Press 4.0.1. Changes are mainly behind the scenes.

There have been a few sites with UW based themes which did not update properly.  If your site is one of them there is a fairly simple workaround:

  1. Login to https://blogs.uw.edu/{sitename}/wp-admin/themes.php
    1. Be sure and change ‘{sitename}’ to the actual name of your site, usually your netid or a departmental netid.
  2. Activate a new theme.
  3. Re-activate the original theme. – that should clear up the problem.
