As part of the WP 5.6 upgrade, newly created sites will be running version 3.x of jQuery. We should ensure that new sites, with their default configuration, will work properly. This means:

- For each Layout (Teaching, Blog, Academic Template), ensure that the theme and default set of plugins don't have any obvious problems
- For each Plugin Package, ensure that there are not any obvious problems

We can't test everything, but we can ensure that there are no glaring issues.

The easiest way for me to test this is by loading the enable-jquery-migrate-tools plugin on the production site, so that I can test with the actual site templates and their actual configurations. In I've added the plugin (and hidden it from general use) so that I can run through a series of tests after the 1.18.6 release.
