Gallery Theme Update

Computer Services will be updating the Gallery theme on Sites.temple.edu on Wednesday, May 17 from 6:00 to 6:30 pm.

When the change is made, the Gallery theme will revert to the default settings. Your content will carry over, but any changes you made to the theme’s appearance will not carry over to the new version. Once the theme is updated on Sites.temple.edu, you will need to manually redo any changes to the theme’s appearance that you want to keep.

Users who have sites using the Gallery theme have been notified and given additional instructions via email. For more information on the Gallery theme, see the UpThemes Gallery Knowledge Base.

Thank you for your cooperation and working with us on the upgrade. If you have any questions, please contact the Help Desk through the TUhelp website or call 215-204-8000.

Old Users Cleanup

As mentioned in a previous post, an old users cleanup was executed last night. Users who no longer have an AccessNet account were deleted. If they authored any content (posts or pages), the content was reassigned to another admin on the site. If there were no other admins, the site was deactivated. We always avoid deleting any content if possible.

Here’s some stats from the cleanup process:

Total Users: 11032
Users Deleted: 2063
Sites Deactivated: 31
