Infrastructure changes affecting WCMS sites

COMPLETE: The migration of all WCMS sites to the new database structure has been completed.

Infrastructure improvements will be implemented soon to improve database stability. Pilot sites have already been migrated to the new database structure. Notifications will go out as database restructuring affects sites; beginning soon. For production sites, we are going to be recommending that you disable forms on your sites and refrain from making edits, as we will be copying databases and upgrading before switching  in order to limit downtime to a fraction of a second.
