Disappearing HTML Bug Fix

Posted: 19 Sep 2013 06:47 AM PDT

Screen Shot 2013-07-10 at 2.17.16 PMThis morning many of you experienced some disappearing HTML. Not this wasn’t a magic act, just a bug.

Here’s the official word from out tech team:

We’ve got a fix in place however you may not see the fix immediately, but we are flushing cached content so that provided you haven't made any changes in the interim, your original markup should be restored.

Also just an FYI, this bug wasn’t part of an upgrade or new feature release but a minor accident in a larger effort to make Squidoo safer for everyone.

Thanks for hanging in there!
