New themes and forum fix

edit

By admin April 22, 2014

A couple of new themes have been added to myblog.arts recently, Cell and Proxima. Cell is a portfolio theme, while Proxima is a magazine-type theme. As always however it is possible to use them for other purposes or to customise them to meet your ends.

Since we moved to a new forum system, the menus for creating Forums, Topics and Replies in the Dashboard of blogs were unfortunately not visible in every blog. This should be fixed now, and if you are the administrator of a blog you should see those menu options. The new forum system makes it possible to have forums on every blog, not just in groups as before.

Some security updates to WordPress have also been made, and the move to WordPress 3.9 is in the pipeline.

If you need any support with these new features, please contact elearning-support@arts.ac.uk
