Missing archive content
Incident Report for Buttondown
For around two hours, almost all public archive pages had blank 'body' text. This was due to an oversight in a migration I was running: I'm splitting up the rendered content for emails between "email HTML" and "web HTML" (so, for instance, I can show the rich iFrame version of Vimeo links on the web but fall back to email-safe embeds for the actual emails being sent out), but misconfigured how to handle emails where the web HTML hadn't been generated (it was a new field, so started out blank). Things slowly got backfilled over the course of the two hours; no user action was needed, but for some archive pages that weren't cached it meant that Buttondown was briefly serving empty content.
