WordPress Upgrade: A New Look for Your Dashboard

U.OSU is upgrading to WordPress version 3.8. When you log in February 14 you’ll have all the same great functionality you know and love, with a refreshed interface.

You won’t notice many other changes, but for you CMS enthusiasts:

  • New Galleries
    When sharing multiple photos you’ll have new display options including a Mosaic gallery, which dynamically arranges your images for an optimum fit.
  • Responsive Design
    Update your blog or manage your site without all the zooming and panning. A responsive design helps you get the job done on any device.
  • Accessibility Improvements
    Enjoy improved keyboard navigation to publish to a U.OSU site. Enhanced color contrast makes navigation easier on the eyes for everyone.

Love the look of your site today? No worries; this update only changes what you see behind the scenes. Your theme and other customizations will stay the same.

The update could cause minor disruptions in service, but we do not anticipate more than a minute’s worth of actual service outage. You can follow the status of the upgrade Feb 14th around 12:15 am at the OCIO’s System Status page, if you’re into that.
