Post-upgrade Commonspot issues
We have been able to complete the upgrade on all production servers, and content replication is current as of 12:30 pm today. Some issues remain for Commonspot authoring; there are problems with the edit and delete options for some elements, and editing elements that are placed "below the fold" in a browser window can be problematic. Developers at Paperthin are testing these issues on our site, and we hope to resolve them soon. Site performance continues to be uneven, as page cache files are rebuilt. This issue should gradually become less noticeable as the collection of site cache files is updated via page requests. Read More »

Barring any surprises during the installation, we would expect that authoring access would be restored by noon on Wednesday. Read More »
