UPDATE: The upgrade is complete! One of the new features we’re testing is the “Visual Editor,” which should allow much easier formatting as well as a spell-checker. You can activate the “Visual Editor” under the “Users” tab by clicking “Edit” on your user account. Please let us know if you have any problems with this or any other aspects of the system!

The Aloha Living Blog Network has continued to grow, and thanks to our bloggers’ excellent insights and regular updates, we’ve seen traffic, visitors, and search engine visibility for the network grow constantly each month since launching last year.

Of course, we always want to ensure you have the best tools you need to succeed in blogging, and on Wednesday, May 7, 2008, we will be upgrading the WordPress software that powers the Aloha Living Blog Network. We plan to begin the upgrade no later than 7 a.m. HST, and complete the work before 8 a.m. To ensure you don’t lose a masterpiece of an entry during this process, we recommend that you refrain from logging in or attempting to access the system during this time.

After the upgrade is complete, we will be running WordPress Multi-User 1.3.3 (rather than 1.2.1), which you’ll be able to verify by checking the bottom of your dashboard. We will also send out another update to summarize notable changes, new features, or issues, should there be any.

We greatly appreciate your patience during this process, and should you encounter any unexpected behavior, as always, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
