WordPress campus network: from blogs to sites

5 08 2014

Just a heads up that the URL for TAG’s website will be changing on August 7 from sites.scranton.edu/tag to sites.scranton.edu/tag.

This is part of a campus-wide change for WordPress sites, so that means that any site on the campus WordPress network (currently sites.scranton.edu) will also be moving to sites.scranton.edu this week.

Excerpt from email announcement from Phil Erb in IR:

We will be changing the URL of the WordPress blogs service from sites.scranton.edu to sites.scranton.edu, to more accurately reflect its expanded uses.

This change will be made on Thursday, August 7th at 8am. No downtime is expected during this change.

After that time, if any should visit a sites.scranton.edu, they will be redirected to the same location on sites.scranton.edu.

I recommend that any publications or other sites that link to your sites.scranton.edu site should be updated in the near future to reflect the new URL. We plan to retire the sites.scranton.edu URL completely by August 2015.
