Sites@Duke Maintenance: Saturday, December 20, 6 to 9 a.m.

OIT will be upgrading the Sites@Duke system to version 4.0.1 on Saturday, December 20th between 6 and 9am. During this time, sites may be unavailable.

During this same maintenance window, we will also remove the Flickrpress plugin. In order to avoid functionality issues, users are advised to switch to either the Slickr Flickr or Flickr Photostream plugins before December 20th. (You can determine if you are using Flickrpress by visiting the Plugins tab after logging in to your site. If it’s active, deactivate it and then activate and configure either Slickr Flickr or Flickr Photostream depending on your specific needs.)
