    hey everyone

    in the coming weeks i will be installing some major (but mostly affecting behind the scenes things) website updates on this ivrpa.org website

    WordPress 5 and Gutenberg

    first we will be updating the core of website to wordpress 5 and the new Gutenberg editor, this may affect the way some users of this site post panoramas and how site editors post news articles and event pages etc, but this should not affect the front end of the site in any noticeable way other than perhaps a performance boost

    everything seems fine in my testing so far, but there may be some unforeseen conflicts with existing backend customizations to this site , so if you notice anything odd please report here

    gutenberg editor does not affect our forums, posting here will not be changed

    more info about new gutenberg wordpress editor here –

    https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/

    SSL & https://

    after that update, we will then be making the long overdue move to SSL https secure login

    https will also affect the way all pages on this site are served and displayed, and we may see some “insecure mixed content” etc warnings on some pages, please report any such errors here with a link to any page that seems unhappy so we can get that fixed asap

    this should all go fairly smoothly with no hiccups, and i will post again here when it is done

    stay tuned for more info

    thanks

    ok, we are now updated to wordpress 5

    everything seems to be working properly, gutenberg editor is apparently not yet fully compatible with our custom post types like panoramas and event pages, so it will only affect pages created by site editors, not normal users

    next up is SSL

    please report anything that seems out of order here

    thanks
