Duke WordPress users have access to a list of plugins that provide extra functionality to their sites. These standard plugins are actively reviewed by the Duke WordPress team, and those that are not being used or are no longer supported will be retired.
During our July 2014 maintenance window (currently scheduled for Saturday, July 12), the following plugins will be removed from the service:
- Broken Link Checker: users of this plugin can use the free link checker tool available at http://validator.w3.org/checklink
- Cron GUI
- Facebook Like: users of this plugin should switch to Share Buttons by AddToAny
- FlickrRSS: users of this plugin should switch to FlickrPress or Flickr Photostream
- Tweetblender: users of this plugin should switch to Really Simple Twitter Feed Widget
- WordPress.com Stats
- WP SIMILE Timeline
- WP-CodeBox: users of this plugin should switch to SyntaxHighlighter Evolved
In cases where retired plugins are actively used by Duke WordPress users, we have suggested alternative plugins with similar functions. Please switch to the new plugin before July 12 to avoid functionality issues.
As always, if you would like to request a particular plugin be added to Duke WordPress, fill out the Feature Request Form. Your suggestions will be reviewed according to Sites@Duke policies for possible inclusion in an upcoming maintenance window.
