WordPress platform upgrade waiting in the wings.

We are always working to stay current with the WordPress blogging software releases – both for security and to provide the latest-and-greatest features – as such we’ll be upgrading our WordPress installation in the coming week. We have been busy testing the compatibility of existing themes and plugins as well as new ones that will be installed after the upgrade.

WordPress 3.8 is functionally identical to what we’re running now and shouldn’t cause any problems or confusion on a technical level, but there have been many changes made to the interface styling.

As the upgrade is a necessary step, we wanted to make sure our blogging community was aware now of the upcoming change. Because the management interface is styled differently it will be a noticeable change, or as it was put in a previous post on the same topic: “Probably better, but definitely different.”
