WordPress Outage 12/20/10

December 16, 2010
For three years, the default page you're used to seeing has been just that--a login page. Today, however, that page will be replaced by the system administrator's blog and will look like another WordPress site. On the new screen, there will be a very visible link to the old login screen where you may access your dashboard. We hope this new approach to logging in will enable us to communicate with our users more effectively since it will allow us to post alerts about outages and other important WordPress announcements.

In addition, a new security update has just been relased. This update will be applied to the WordPress server on Monday, Dec. 20, at 4 p.m. The expected downtime is approximately one hour.

If you have any questions about this outage or changes in the login screen, please contact Lance Grigsby, academic consultant, at Lance_Grigsby@baylor.edu.
