When we upgraded to WP 3.8 right around the new year, I noticed that it promised to automatically apply security updates. Sure enough, we now have 3.8.1 without any of us having to lift a finger. It’s always nice when something works like that.
If any of you still have WordPress sites on our server that are not part of the main install at wou.edu/wp, please be certain that they are upgraded to the latest version! Un-maintained WP sites are a serious security hazard, and unfortunately we’re going to need to be a little tighter about separate WP installations. If you have a site like this and want to move it to the central installation, we can help you with that; just contact me at email@example.com. Also, if you know of one of these separate WP sites that isn’t needed anymore, let me know and I’ll remove it for you safely.
