Hey! I just wanted to quickly let everyone know what happened yesterday.
Somehow, when a plugin updated, it broke some core site functionality (if you were trying to access the site yesterday, you may have noticed that the menus stopped being clickable and all the forms just completely vanished). I still don’t really understand why X unrelated plugin broke Y and Z unrelated functions, so I’m just going to blame ghosts.
Luckily, my web host is great and does weekly site backups on top my my own, so we were able to rollback to Dec 18th version of the site. This has restored the broken functions with minimal content loss. I’ve re-posted the two missing stories, so please go re-vote and re-comment if you feel so inclined!
In order to allow the last two stories their time in the spotlight, no new story will be published on the 21st.
We are still trying to troubleshoot why the site is loading at a snail’s pace after the rollback, so please bear with us on that point.
