Glow Blogs – e-portfolio update

In preparation for the forthcoming e-portfolio update we will be retiring all of the current e-portfolio themes on Thursday 5th November 2015.

This means the e-portfolio themes will not be available to apply to new or existing blogs from the theme picker.  The themes will continue to work on blogs to which they have already been applied.  In the future, we would recommend changing these themes to a more standard one and using the forthcoming e-portfolio plugin to produce profiles.

At some point in the future, the e-portfolio themes will be turned off altogether and blogs using these themes will revert to the default theme.  We will give plenty of notice before this happens.

The new e-portfolio plugin will be released on Tuesday 10th November 2015.

On both days (the 5th and the 10th) the blog service will be down for a short time between 1600 and 1700

Help for the new e-portfolio plug in is being developed and this can be accessed here – https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/glowblogs/glowbloghelp/e-portfolios/

This release on the 10th will also add functionality to the My Sites pages so that teachers and non-teaching staff will be able to remove their membership from the sites that appear there.
