UW Theme Updated to 1.5.0

On Friday, June 7, the WordPress UW Theme was updated to version 1.5.0 within the WiscWeb Service.

A full list of changes in this version can be reviewed in the changelog. Here are the two significant highlights:


  • The Accordion Panel Page Element has undergone a redesign to improve its overall accessibility.
  • This update includes the addition of helpful “Expand All” and “Collapse All” options, which are now located at the top of each accordion grouping.
  • IMPORTANT: If you experience any weirdness with the display of your accordions after this update, please let us know. There is a chance that the CDN cache on your project will need to be cleared in order for this change to render correctly.

Privacy Statement

  • The Privacy Statement link that was added in version release 1.4.1 has been retitled as a Privacy Notice.
  • The link for this now goes to a new campus privacy notice.
