We realised on Monday night that the eFiction upgrade script had removed all but the first character, genre and warning attached to a story from every story on the site. This meant that if you had John Sheppard, Rodney McKay and Teyla Emmagan attached to your story, which was angst, humour and hurt comfort, and warned for adult themes and may squick, you were left with a story about John Sheppard, angst and adult themes. This does not affect stories added to the site after the upgrade.
We've spent the last couple of days reimporting that data from a previous, pre-update backup of the site's database, as well as resolving other issues from the upgrade, for example replacing category specific characters with sitewide characters (i.e. there are no longer fifty listings of the same character if you choose to browse characters).
We haven't been able to recover all of the data, but we've recovered most of it. However, the problem still affects stories added to the site between 23 March and 28 April 2007.
If you added a story between these two dates, please check and make sure that you're happy with the meta data (i.e. that it's showing all of the characters, genres and warnings you attached). If not, please edit the story to add this information again.
I've also updated the Change Documentation to reflect this issue. This document is now split into three sections:
- changes to the way the site operates
- known issues
- resolved issues.
We'll keep that updated as we identify new issues or resolve them, so please check to make sure that we don't already know about it before reporting any issues.
I miss the automatic table-of-contents one got with a fic that is in pieces, I guess. It was nice to see the dates a chapter was published and be able to go right to the current chapter. The current setup is less obvious to the casual reader, I guess, but that may be a personal bias.
But this has been a *ton* of work on your part. I do computer things for a living so I know what you go through. And public thanks for all the hard work everyone does to keep this site up and running.
Hey! Did you know there was an option to tell the wonderful software we're using here to do the table of contents instead of just the first chapter? It's so cool! ::red face::
Going to read more documentation now.....
