With the recent update of WordPress to V3.8, we now have the new default 2014 theme available. It has been developed to support a magazine style layout, such as shown here.
In 2014, our default theme lets you create a responsive magazine website with a sleek, modern design. Feature your favorite homepage content in either a grid or a slider. Use the three widget areas to customize your website, and change your content’s layout with a full-width page template and a contributor page to show off your authors. Creating a magazine website with WordPress has never been easier.

The redirection is now back in place, and these old links will still work.
Spam comments: On Friday we discovered that the anti-spam service which protects the blogs from comment spam was not working, but unfortunately too late to get it fixed by the weekend. This has led to a deluge of spam comments over the weekend. That is now fixed, spam levels should be minimal. Continue reading eduBuzz Migration: Update, Monday 16th→
