Issues

A running list of known problems with the current (beta) version of OrangePolitics 3.0:

  • Previous users are not having to opt-in to the terms of service.

Problems specifically with entries imported from the old site:

  • Some comments have the wrong timestamp. (Which ones?)
  • All content was "created" on the day it was imported.

Details TBA.
