In the coming days, Information, Technology & Consulting (ITC) will be implementing updates to the Dartmouth WordPress platform. Part of this update will include creating separate platforms for administrative sites (sites.dartmouth.edu) and all teaching and learning sites (journeys.dartmouth.edu). We’ve gone through the process of categorizing previous sites to place them in the appropriate categories. We are doing this so that, across these two site collections, we can offer WordPress users a greater variety of themes, plug-ins, and capabilities.
As site owners and editors, there are a few changes that you will notice:
- A new secure log-in process: At log-in, similar to other Dartmouth systems, you will be prompted with a web authentication sign-in page. Enter your Dartmouth NetID and password to access your site.
- New features: You will gain access to a variety of additional themes, plugins, and platform features. We are incredibly excited about where this might take learning journeys in the future!
- Moving to Journeys: If you have a teaching and learning site, your old URL will redirect you to the new one in journeys.dartmouth.edu. All older links and bookmarks referring to the old address will be redirected to the new destination.
Please note: During the week of March 19 to March 26 2018, no new site creations will be allowed. As the updates are made to the platform during the weekend of March 24-25, you will not be able to access or edit your site. If you need to update your site, please complete your work prior to Friday, March 23rd at 4 PM. We will notify you the morning of March 26 after the completion of the platform upgrade and changes.
