Two plugins to be retired

What plugins will be retired?

  • Anarchy Media Player: This plugin was installed initially to allow authors to embed YouTube videos and/or audio into a page or post. Now WordPress supports embedding YouTube and audio files natively.
  • Exclude Pages from Navigation: When we first installed WordPress, a site’s menu was created automatically by the order and hierarchy of its pages. The plugin allowed site administrators to omit pages from their menu, but WordPress 3.0 introduced custom menus. It’s unlikely your site relies on this plugin because all websites on Depts display a custom menu in tandem with the Lafayette Navigation widget.

When will these plugins be retired?

Both of these plugins will be no longer accessible after August 6, 2014.

Whom should I contact if I have questions?

For those with a website on Depts, feel free to send questions to the Communications Division at infohelp@lafayette.edu.
