The Duke WordPress system will be offline temporarily between 6 am and 9 am this Saturday, October 15, 2011, which is our standard maintenance window. During this time we will make some minor changes to the system, including the addition of a new plug-in, called Top Contributors. During this time, visitors to your sites may not be able to view the sites’ pages, and you may not be able to access the dashboard to administer your sites. Access to all sites and dashboards will be restored as soon as the maintenance is completed.
From now through November 1st, we are accepting suggestions or feature requests for consideration for our next upgrade to Duke WordPress, which will happen in mid-December, after fall semester classes conclude. Suggestions already under consideration include improved mobile access and a plug-in to allow WordPress user profiles to include a photograph. More about the feedback process and our overall schedule for making improvements to Duke WordPress is available at http://sites.duke.edu/about/governance/.
