Spring Cleaning – Upcoming Upgrades

During Spring Break (March 10, 2014 – March 16, 2014) we will be upgrading the software running onMason.

We do not expect any extended outages during the upgrade process.

After the upgrade, there will be a few changes to onMason. The most noticeable change will be a new look to the admin dashboard. It will feature a higher contrast color theme (with blacks replacing the grays). However, the menu items will largely remain the same.

We will also take the opportunity to remove a number of seldomly used, obsolete or broken plugins. Those plugins include:

Calendar* – we recommend that you use the Google Calendar Events plugin instead.

Do Follow* – the functionality of this plugin is already part of the standard SEO controls we offer.

Pulish2 – no alternative or replacement is planned.

Widget Logic* – no alternative or replacement is planned.

Wickett Twitter Widget – this plugin will be replaced with the Twitget plugin.

*These plugins were only available to a select number of sites.

It is important for us to remove these plugins as they affect the stability and performance of onMason.
