WordPress Core Update

At 7am on Wednesday, July 29th we will be updating the WordPress core software to version 4.2.3 on both web.unc.edu and sites.unc.edu.

The networks will be put into maintenance mode and will be temporarily unavailable during the update, which is expected to take approximately 5-10 minutes.

This update should be mostly transparent for all users, but does have some nice new features including the ability to change the theme of a website in the Customizer, so you can preview the change before it is made live. For a full list of new features and changes, view the release notes at WordPress.org.

If you experience any bugs or issues after the update, please submit a ticket at help.unc.edu or call 962-HELP.
