Edublogs has been having some issues with the creation of new blogs. The problem was first reported on October 30th, 2017. This issue had to do with a mistaken institutional-wide installation of a particular plug-in called CoursePress.
The plug-in was disabled for our institution (but allowed for individual blogs). This seems to have fixed the redirect issue at the time by the morning of the the 30th of October, 2017.
A new re-direct issue has been found today November 10th. The redirect looks quite similar to the former problem, but is a bit different.
A ticket with CampusPress (our Edublogs provider) has been entered into the system by T.MacNeill at 9:30am on November 10th. We’re awaiting a response from our service provider.
UPDATE: As of 12 noon on November 10th, 2017 – The page for blog creation is now redirecting correctly. We are unsure as to the cause of this morning’s re-direct problems. Please ensure that you clear your browser history, before re-attempting to create a blog.
