Upgrading of Pages.UPD web service
To all Pages.UPD users:
We are excited to announce that Pages.UPD (or simply, Pages) will be upgraded on Friday, March 16 at 1pm! The upgraded Pages will include changes to the look and feel, with the website now being responsive for both mobile and desktop versions. We have also improved the structure and organization of the contents and/or menus, as well as added some useful tools and features, so creating and editing website will be as uncomplicated as ever. There are other minor but significant changes to make your and your audience’s Pages experience much better. (More details of the changes are found below.
As you may have noticed these past days, the editing mode (or logging in to) Pages was temporarily disabled. This was done to allow the technical team to modify some of the users’ websites in preparation for the updating. A few pages, plug-ins, or settings were modified for implementation to the latest version. Contents remain the same but lay-out may have changed, and trivial (non-useful) tools may now not be supported. We recommend you to kindly check your websites and/or log-in to Pages the soonest after Friday’s updating.
Do let us know if you will encounter issues on your website/s or have concerns about Pages. Your feedback is very important to us as we strive to improve on our web services. You may email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or send a ticket via our helpdesk (https://helpdesk.ilc.upd.edu.ph).
Thank you very much and we look forward to you optimizing the potentials of Pages!
