Weblog maintenance

The SSC-ICT has a maintenance window every Thursday' from 18-22h. We will try to inform you as soon as possible when maintenance is planned. Due to security we have to stay up to date with our Wordpress version and update the plugins regularly. We will update approximately 3 times a year. Dates depend on the Wordpress releases and can't be scheduled in advance.

IT Maintenance Weekend
Wordpress may be offline during the next IT Maintenance weekend Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 March 2017.

Youtube plugin and short URL’s

The Youtube plugin used in wordpress can’t handle the short URL’s created by Youtube. You can recognise a short URL by the www.youtu.be/ address used. To get a working URL open the shortened Youtube link in a new window and copy the address provided in the browsers address bar. Use the newly copied address in the Youtube plugin.
