On August 20, 2019, Ryerson’s WordPress network, blog.ryerson.ca, was moved from local campus servers to an external provider that hosts servers in Canada.
No visible impact to your blog sites
Your blog site has the same web address (URL) and content as it had prior to the move. You will be able to update your site as usual.
A change to the way we add new users
From now on, new user accounts can only be created by the blog.ryerson.caadministrators. If a user already has an account, you will be able to add them to your blog.
If you are having difficulty adding someone to your blog, and suspect they may not have an account on the blog system, please submit an inquiry to the online form found on the Contact Us page of our website. Be sure to include the usernames and roles of the people you wish to add to your blog, along with your blog address.
Some blog.ryerson.ca users reported problems uploading images to their blog sites between April 6 and 13, 2017. We believe that the issue only impacted users who were posting from off-campus on Mac devices.
Our security team applied a fix on Thursday, April 13, which we believe has resolved this issue.
As usual, if you experience any problems using blog.ryerson.ca, please submit a report though the online form found on the Contact Us page.
The blog.ryerson.ca server became unresponsive on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at 7:50 PM. The server was restarted and service returned to normal at 8:25 AM on Thursday, January 19, 2017. We are investigating the root cause.
Please accept our apologies for any problems this outage has caused.
