As of today, we are officially opening PWP to an open pilot on the campus of Georgia Tech. Any faculty or staff member interested in starting a WordPress website can use PWP to request, administer, and edit their websites.
This help-desk style training is meant for you to bring your questions, comments, and concerns, and have a PWP expert work with you on solutions.
Feel free to come by, say hi, and bring your questions and comments! Please bring your laptop computer or tablet device.
Location: Bradley Building – Conference Room (connected to Highland Bakery)
Dates: Wednesday, June 17th and Wednesday, July 15th
Time: 1:30pm – 4:00pm (drop in as needed!)
Preparing for the open-campus pilot in Summer 2015, a few changes have been made to facilitate this process.
Bug Fixes to Forms
One of the plugins PWP uses was causing some irregular and unintended behavior to form submissions. This has been resolved.
WP Latex now provides LaTeX support to PWP websites. Enable this plugin to add LaTeX text to your website.
Anyone interested in adding or revising PWP Documentation is welcome to assist. Documentation will be revised and expanded as we approach the open-campus pilot.
Today, PWP was updated to match a security update released by WordPress.
We do not expect any sites to be vulnerable, as we by default restrict commenting settings on all PWP sites and applied the patch shortly after it was made available.
Tertiary Menu Support
GT Boilerplate has been updated to add in support for menu links 3 levels deep in both desktop and mobile form. As we saw a current PWP website incorporating this menu hierarchy, it was imperative to add this support in.
Our hosted platform, WordPress, has updated with some new features:
Additional embeds (Kickstarter, Tumblr), extended character support, content sharing, emoji, and some under-the-hood improvements.
