WordPress Upgrade Brings New Theme

The UT Libraries blog network has just been upgraded to a new version of WordPress. The upgrade address security issues within WordPress.

Migrating to the new WordPress was the perfect opportunity to debut a new accessible and mobile-friendly theme for all of the blogs. This new theme is a customized version of the latest WordPress TwentyFourteen base theme. The new theme fixes a number of accessibility issues in the various themes previously in use.

When you first log in to your blog you may be prompted to reset your password. If you have any problems please contact Technology Integration Services.

The new theme supports custom header images as in previous themes but has a wider, shorter layout when viewed on a desktop. Your blogs’ header image was resized to fit the new layout which has a recommended header size of 1260 x 240. You may find you would like to create a new image to fit these dimensions. Please let us know if you need help with this.
