Occa­sion­ally, sites with one of the older UW based themes do not update correctly.  If your site is one of them, there is a 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 different theme.
  3. Re-activate the orig­i­nal theme. — that should clear up the problem.
