Site migration

Hey all,

In order to clean up the site infrastructure and address some security and spam issues, we’ve migrated the site to a new (faster) server, and essentially rebuilt the site from the ground up. Some of the plugins used to provide functionality (including the code syntax highlighter) weren’t compatible with the most recent versions of WordPress, so alternatives had to be found.

I’ve tried to ensure everything is working similarly to how it was before (or better), but it’s possible that I missed something. If you discover any strange issues or broken features, please leave a comment below so that I can fix them.



Update on 2/10: I’m testing out a new plugin that will convert HTML to text when posting a comment. That means those users who post code in comments without using the code tags should have their code come out looking a bit better. Please let me know if you discover any issues with posting comments as a result!

Update on 12/30: Comments have been re-added to the tutorials per request. We’re trying out some new anti-spam filters so we’ll see how that goes. I’ll be going through each of the articles, manually cleaning up any spam that leaked through the previous filter, and deleting off-topic/useless comments. This will probably take a few days/weeks since there are over six thousand comments to read through!
