WordPress Upgrade Scheduled for 8/7

We will upgrade the WordPress software on Friday 8/7/2015 starting at 8 am. It should take about 2 hours. During the upgrade, there will be times when your site may not be available, or may appear to be missing features.

Since upgrades can affect the way some plugins and themes work, we ask you to check your site on our staging server where the upgrade has already been done. You will find a link to your site on the staging server in the upgrade announcement on your blog’s admin area. Sites were copied to the staging server on July 21, so sites created after that date are not included. If your site uses any of the themes or plugins slated to be updated (see list below) you should be especially vigilant when testing.

The following plugins and themes will be upgraded along with WordPress:
