As many of you know, TTAG has been experiencing technical issues over the last week or so. At the present, I am working on two issues that are causing the greatest pain to the armed intelligentsia:
Comment/post editing functionality
Periodic timeouts when posting or commenting
The first is a bug that we have so happily stumbled upon between WordPress and the Ajax Edit Comments plugin. I have an inquiry in with the developer, so hopefully we can nail down what it is pretty quickly. At the moment, if you are a registered user and logged into the admin portion of the site, the edit functionality appears and works as advertised. The second issue is a side effect of an implementation to combat our future growing pains . . .
I have implemented a commercial load-balancer to distribute traffic between multiple servers. On occasion, the connection between the visitor to the site and TTAG is lost, which causes the behavior that is periodically seen. I am presently working with the developer of the product to get a resolution in place, but more than likely it will be during our maintenance window Saturday night/Sunday morning before it will be implemented.
I know these issues are an annoyance and we are working as quickly as possible to resolve them, but we do not want to put a “fix” in place that causes the site more harm than good. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
