OTB Site Update [Updated]
We're slowly fixing the site.
Our new developer has upgraded the site to the latest WordPress install, upgraded all plugins, and removed the defunct SiteMeter code. He’s also cleared the database on a security plugin that had gotten enormous and changed the timing of an update that was, for reasons that I don’t understand, was taking place at 5:05pm Eastern.
Let us know if you see any performance issues related to these changes.
Next up: Fixing the ad issues.
Once the existing site is running as well as we can make it, we’ll get to making it more compatible with mobile devices and other features.
UPDATE 1: Apparently, the controversial Up/Down voting feature for comments was a casualty of the update. The plugin is no longer supported and is incompatible with the current version of WordPress. We may look into alternatives down the line.
UPDATE 2 (Jan. 26): We’ve got a different Up/Down plugin installed. It worked fine on the development site and it’s now live here. Let us know if you see problems with it.
