Server Problem

Unfortunately, we encountered an unrecoverable error with one of our servers that hosted the blogs at macblog.mcmaster.ca.  We had to recreate the virtual machine and restore from a backup made a few months ago and are working to restoring as much content as possible. This may take some time.

We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.

Please forward any concerns to David Kemper at kemperd@mcmaster.ca.

Wiki Service (macwiki) to be Discontinued August 31, 2019

The library will be discontinuing the wiki-hosting service (https://macwiki.mcmaster.ca) which was powered by PmWiki effective August 31, 2019.

If you have a wiki being hosted at https://macwiki.mcmaster.ca, you can either use our WordPress (blog) service (https://macblog.mcmaster.ca) or migrate over to another platform. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact libweb@mcmaster.ca.

 

Classic Editor

For those of you who prefer to use the classic editor instead of the Gutenberg editor which was introduced with the WordPress 5.0 release last December, you can now enable the “Classic Editor” plugin. Go to Plugins and click “Activate” to enable the Classic Editor.

Server problem

Good morning

There was a problem with the server which hosted the macblog.mcmaster.ca service.  A restore was made using a backup from December 24, 2017.  Please contact libweb@mcmaster.ca if you have added content since then.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.
