There is currently a problem with the system for adding users from a curriculum group from seemis.
27 Sep 2023 Add Users, Add Curriculum Groups is now fixed and working as expected. A fix is under way for Bulk Create Blogs and we expect it to be live in October.
This stops the Bulk Creation of blogs working.
Users can still be added to blogs using the Add Users Screen, not the Add Curricular Groups. Details: Add Users.
A fix has been developed and is in the process of being tested before deployment. We hope the fix for the Add Users screen will be out before the end of the month and the Bulk Create Blogs in October.
Glow Blogs has had another update. Here are some highlights

There a few possible issues with using the Block Editor for e-portfolio blogs. Some blocks are not compatible with producing pdfs.
We have listed some of the possible issues on the Block editor blog.
Most of the problematic blocks are unlikely to be used in e-portfolios, but many folk may prefer to continue with the default classic editor.
