How do I prevent my MyPAD blog/website from being archived?

Answer

All blogs and websites on MyPAD which have not been updated for three years are automatically archived (i.e., they are made completely unavailable to all external and UON users, including the blog owners/administrators). However, the blogs/websites are not deleted, and they can be restored upon request by contacting the Learning Technology Team.

If you have a MyPAD blog or website that has not been updated recently, but which you want to prevent from being archived, simply log in to https://mypad.northampton.ac.uk, navigate to the dashboard for your blog or website, choose 'Posts' (or 'Pages'), and open any of the posts by selecting the title of the post. Then, make a minor change, such as adding a space after a full stop at the end of a paragraph, and select 'Update'. If you are using the classic editor, you will be able to see that the 'Last edited' date has been updated to the current date. If you are using the block editor, you can see the date of the last update via the 'Revisions' tool in the editor.
