I’ve just released version of the CUNY Academic Commons. This is an emergency bugfix release.

Part of the 1.4.31 release last week was the upgrade of the WP plugin The Events Calendar from v2.0.11 to a completely rewritten v3.0. However, that updated version contained multiple bugs that completely broke important functionality on several sites hosted on the Commons. Commons rolls the plugin back to the last known-working version for the time being.

For complete details, see the milestone.
