Some Plugin Issues

(UPDATE: Emailed post notifications seem to work just fine, as does the automatic feed to the Facebook page. It may be the Discussion topics plugin that is at issue. Check here later for further updates.)

Hello everyone,

Just so you are in the loop, our site is having an issue with some plugins so you won’t see some things, in particular, the discussion topics and the Facebook feed. Emailed post notifications might not work for the time being either. We will work on the issues and resolve as soon as possible. Other functions should be okay. Thank you for your patience and, as always, thank you for your interest in this site!

  1. Hi all — several of you wrote to me about not being able to access the blog yesterday or the day before. I spent a while yesterday troubleshooting this, and discovered that the problem was the plugin managing reader-submitted discussion topics. For some reason, it was causing the blog to frequently surpass the limit of CPU activity that is allowed by the server hosting us. Disabling that plugin (and, consequently, disabling the discussion topic function) has solved the problem. We may or may not be able to restore that function. In the meantime, if you have a question or topic that you’d like to share, please feel free to send it to Manyul or me and in all likelihood we’ll be happy to post it for you.
