Major Facelift for wp.vcu.edu Dashboards

Update: This change has been rescheduled for Thursday, March 27, at 7:30 a.m.

The dashboards for sites on wp.vcu.edu will soon be getting a major facelift. We will be upgrading WordPress to version 3.8, which “brings a fresh new look to the entire admin dashboard,” according to its makers. Watch the video below to learn more about all of the changes the update will bring.

We normally update WordPress quietly, and you likely don’t notice when we do. However, this update overhauls the dashboard so significantly that we wanted to make you aware of the changes. Read the blog post announcing WordPress 3.8 to read about these changes in more detail.

At the same time, we will be making some tweaks and adjustments behind the scenes. These should provide wp.vcu.edu with a performance boost.
