    As many of you have noticed, we’re deactivating posting for another 45 minutes while we run some unplanned maintenance on some of our main blog servers. Some of you may not be affected at all, the distribution is random.

    On the bright side, your blogs should still be readable, your stats are still being tracked, and everything should be back to normal shortly. Thanks for your patience.

    Will the 2 I’ve written as this notice was being published show up either on my blog or my drafts? I don’t see them now saved as drafts…

    my blog is not fully readable – all page links go to the “problem” page

    ramblingroze, I don’t know, you’ll have to see when it comes back up. Everything up to the last auto-save before things went down should be there.

    comparedtowhat, your blog is visible to people who aren’t logged in. There is an “invalid key” problem for people who are logged in that should be fixed within a few minutes.

    matt — my foot really itches, is there anything you can do about that?

    Just kidding.

    Okay all “invalid key” errors should be fixed now.

    jpoyer, maybe this?

    Okay all dashboards should be active again now. Let me know if you have any new problems that started after things were brought back.

    I have a 12 minute notice on mine.

    #138376

    I notice one little oddity that I’d thought was a part of this, but now things appear to be loading faster and it’s still there:

    Maybe theme specific, but my blog has links at the bottom of the page (e.g., the front page) for “previous entries” and “next entries.” They have stopped showing up. Hmmm, I notice they *are* showing up on a couple of other Cutline blogs in the system. So the cause must be something else.

    I did try putting some code into a text widget earlier this evening. It didn’t work as it contained javascript, so I deleted it and removed the widget. Might that have messed up the code for the links?

    Update: Well, it’s back to normal now, so… nevermind. :-/ Maybe it was related to this maintenance after all.

    This is so not fair. I was down to one minute for about two minutes, and now it’s back up to two minutes. That’s alright, I have some creme to apply anyway.

    growthmadness, your blog should be fixed now.

    #138381

    @jpoyner try clearing your cache and reloading, or logging out and then back in.

    [edit] of course, only after applying the creme.
