WORDPRESS UPDATE
On May 19, 2021 we will updating most of the sites to WordPress 5.7.2. This is a short cycle security update. We will install security updates on the productions sites after a quick test period on some test WordPress sites. The next major WordPress release will be WordPress 5.8.

SOH PARENT THEME
We will be updating the state parent theme on May 19, 2021 also. We will be current on version 1.2.14. An issue was fixed where calendar plugins displayed UTC time instead of HST.

GRAVITY FORMS
An article from Gravity Forms will help to make your form accessible. https://www.gravityforms.com/how-to-create-an-accessible-form/

ACTIVATION KEY
We are working with CloudFlare to figure out why adding a new user to a multisite site sends a link where the activation key does not populate the activation key box automatically.

WP-SMTP
We have noticed that some sites may be experiencing e-mail from the site is not being sent to recipients. An example use for e-mail notification is a form to sign up for a newsletter that should be sent to an e-mail with your office. Let us know if you experience this behavior.

JQUERY MIGRATE
Some plugins still require the jQuery Migrate Enable plugin in order to have a working site. We will be turning jQuery Migrate Enable on sites that do not need this plugin to function.

WORDPRESS PLUGINS
If you have plugins on your site(s) that you are not using, please double check and then send us an e-mail to tell us to deactivate these unused plugins.
