Some users experience issues with pictures not showing – resolved

Unfortunately the new wordpress version came with an issue that pictures are not showing for some users. We are working on a solution.

This issue will most likely only appear for blog admins, since it is an http/https issue. Viewing a site in http will not give any issues, but once you have visited the site in https, you will experience not showing pictures.

We will post an update as soon as we solved this.

Maintenance Upgrade

Thursday January 14th we have upgraded the weblog environment to WordPress version 4.4.1 as well as an upgrade of the database.

We are experiencing issues with YouTube video’s that are not visible in specific theme’s including the TU Delft Theme. We will be looking into this and solve this is soon as possible.

Weblog offline tonight due to security fix

Due to a security fix we have to upgrade the weblog tonight between 18.00 and 22.00h.

The weblog will not be available during this upgrade. We will be online again as soon as possible.

Welcome at the TU Delft Weblog

This weblog environment is available for all students and staff with a TU Delft NetID. You can start your own weblog, or a weblog for a department or study activity. To start a weblog press ‘log in’ at the top right. Surf Connext is used for authentication.

If you login for the first time, WordPress will give extra information about the possibilities. Since it is a very straight forward application that changes a lot we do not have our own manual, but a lot of help-information is available online. For security reasons it is not possible to install your own plugins at your blog. You could sent us suggestions about the plugins you would like to have and we will check them out. We will be updating WordPress and installing new plugins 2-3 times a year. For assistance, contact E-Learning Support.

We expect every user to comply with the code of conduct. Commercial use is not allowed and will be removed.

TU Delft Weblog authentication problems – problem solved

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At the moment it is not possible to login to the tudelft weblog with your NetID as well as a few other applications that use surf connext to authenticate. We are working on a solution. We expect it will take until tomorrow to solve this issue. Sorry for the inconvenience.

WordPress Manual

WordPress is very user friendly. If you need any assistance, there are many manuals available on the internet. Check out: codex.wordpress.org

How to get to the admin Dashboard

When you are visiting your site and you cannot return to your dashboard: type /wp-admin behind your site name and you return to your dashboard. In your dashboard you can choose to make the metadata widget visible on your site. This widget contains links to log in and to return to the site admin panel (dashboard).

Weblog migration this Thursday September 20th

There are no more obstacles to prevent us from migrating this weblog to WordPress. The migration will take place this week on Thursday September 20th. In the morning at 9 o’ clock we will freeze all weblog content. This means the weblogs can be read, but it will not be possible to add any content. In the morning we will start migrating the weblogs behind the scenes. The last preparations will take place during the ICT Maintenance Period (starts at six o’ clock). Around seven o’ clock we will do a last check and if all goes well we will be online again around eight.

As stated before. Alle content of the current weblogs will be migrated, styling however, will not be migrated. All weblogs will be placed in the same TU Delft Weblog theme. After the migration you can choose a new theme and personalize it to your wishes.

All weblog users will receive an e-mail with this information. We will also keep you informed via this blog. We will give you advise on settings and where you can find what.

In short:

Thursday September 20th

9.00: Content Freeze – weblog available as Read only
9.00-19.00 Work behind the scenes
Around 20.00 Weblog online in new WordPress environment
