Professional Web Presence has completed its update to WordPress 5.0. As part of this update, there are new features available to all PWP site-owners.
PWP has successfully completed the first annual renewal review campaign to identify outdated and abandoned websites and ensure websites have proper administrative contacts.
Thank you so much to each site administrator who renewed your website, reached out to the PWP team with questions, or processed your unneeded website for removal.
We will be repeating the site renewal campaign for Fall 2019. However, all of you have provided incredible feedback and further insight into our process, so we will be delivering a better site renewal experience for you in the future.
To conclude the Fall 2018 PWP Site Renewal campaign, PWP will begin archiving non-renewed PWP websites starting on Friday, January 25th 2019.
PWP administrators will make all best-efforts to contact non-renewed site-owners between now and January 25th.
To ensure that Professional Web Presence (PWP) stays secure and stable, we will be implementing a very short weekly maintenance window during which access to PWP will be unavailable. This window will be 5 AM to 5:15 AM on Sunday mornings, but realistically PWP should normally be available again by 5:05 AM if not even earlier.
Please be aware that during this window, you will not be able to access PWP for viewing or updating of sites. Once the weekly maintenance ends, access will resume as normal. No action on the part of our individual PWP site administrators is necessary.
As part of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) data privacy regulations rolling out in the European Union, the PWP systems administrators are alerting each site owner about student data and file upload privacy. We have provided additional information to learn more about GDPR.
