On April 28, the Dartmouth WordPress platform was updated to the latest 5.1.1 version.  This added the option for an improved "block editor", introduced with WordPress version 5.0.  By default, the familiar "classic" editor remains active.  However, site administrators can choose to allow the use of the new editor, as shown with these new options available under Settings / Writing:

Another new update is that uploaded images and files no longer have a random 6-character string added to the file name.  In the past, if you uploaded my-article.pdf to your website, the file name might be something like my-article-2zsikp.pdf instead.  This no longer occurs, so the file name remains the same.

The default theme for 2019 is designed to show off the power of the block editor. It features custom styles for all the default blocks, and is built so that what you see in the editor looks like what you'll see on your website. Twenty Nineteen is designed to be adaptable to a wide range of websites, whether you’re running a photo blog, launching a new business, or supporting a non-profit. Featuring ample whitespace and modern sans-serif headlines paired with classic serif body text, it's built to be beautiful on all screen sizes.

ITC has completed the system migration, and would like to thank all WordPress users for their cooperation and patience.

There are now two separate WordPress platforms:

The new platforms are hosted by our partner CampusPress, and we hope that the additional themes and plugins that we can now provide will prove useful to the Dartmouth community.
