Maintenance in Progress

on February 20, 2014 in News & Updates

Just a quick heads up.

If you've noticed any weirdness on the site over the last two days, that's a result of some emergency maintenance being done. Unfortunately fixing the initial issues broke some other features of the site, so you might continue to run into problems while they're sorted out. Most notably, you'll find shortcodes displaying as code on some pages (like the About page). You might also see short-term theme changes or features being disabled completely while we continue testing to identify the root of the problem.

Most things will work fine unless they're disabled for those brief rounds of testing (probably no more than a minute or two at a time).  The site will also be slower again during this period as I've had to disable most optimizations that were completed recently.

If you run into any issues, you can post them in the comments here or in the Problems and Suggestions area of the forums. I'll update this post when things have been sorted out. As I'm waiting on input from multiple developers, I don't have a solid ETA on the fixes yet.

Update: It appears that all of the front-end problems have been addressed for now. I'll continue to test. Some issues might still turn up while I re-optimize the site over the weekend. At this point if you come across any issues, let me know and I'll add them to the known issues list (which you can find in the forums news and announcements area).

Thanks for sharing!
