The UBS stewardship team will upgrade PHP 5.4 to 5.6 on June 13th, 2019. Maintenance will begin at 6 pm and is expected to last for one hour. The service will need to be restarted and a short outage is expected. No actions are required on your part.
UBS has been updated to WordPress 5.1.1. See the following link for more information about this maintenance and security patch.
WordPress has released the new Gutenberg editor, which aims to improve the content creation experience for your WordPress site.
The “Classic” editor will continue to be available by default for all current and new sites.
Site Administrators are welcome to try out the new Gutenberg editor at any time!
Just log into your site Dashboard, click on Plugins in the left-hand menu, then deactivate the “Classic Editor” plugin.
NOTE (7/25/19): There is a known issue affecting sites with a custom domain that are also using the Gutenberg editor which can cause an error creating/updating posts or pages. To avoid this error, make sure to always use your custom domain when accessing the site dashboard. Use this: customdomain.utexas.edu/wp-admin Not this: sites.utexas.edu/site/wp-admin
