Fonts have changed, background has changed to grey, diary header layout has changed, rec and recent lists don't display.
Did IT break something?
IE and Chrome.

    Same her - I, too, have Chrome. And I see an "opps, we're sorry box:
     
    We’re sorry, but something seems to have gone wrong.

    Please check back soon! For more information, visit status.dailykosmedia.com for up-to-the-minute updates and news on what's going on."

    The latest status there is dated March 1, saying "we're back."

    Hello!
    Not exactly -- but sorta.
    We do have some design changes in rollout. The deploy didn't go quite as smoothly as planned.
    As you can imagine, we're trying to find the problems and design the fixes asap.
    Thanks for asking!

    Yes, the sections of the site that are visible are functional.

    Thanks, AKALib. I saw them but didn;t try to access any of the diaries on the rec list. However, most shared consists of nothing but a label; I see no diaries under its banner.

    Sorry, guys. It gets weirder. On diary "https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/3/28/1752858/-Why-does-Paul-Manafort-remain-the-sole-American-indicted-by-Mueller-who-hasn-t-flipped?detail=emaildkre", neither the rec list nor the most shared list show ANY diaries. ??

    FYI - Bold and italics don't work in the comments editor.

    Work in progress.
    Thanks for your patience!
    We'll get the last sidebar (recent stories) back up soon. Meanwhile, if you click on that section headline then you'll be redirected to the list view of recent posts. That's something, anyway.

    Thanks. Not surprising, given the general font misbehavior. Likely related, but appreciate the alert just in case.

    Last time I looked at the site, some of the sidebar sections WERE working. That's not the case now.
    Three of the four right sidebar sections can be accessed by clicking on the sidebar headings: Community Spotlight, Recommended, and Recent Stories.
    You'll be redirected to the list view of each category.
    Most Shared doesn't work that way, so for now that's not accessible.

    Also -- for fun -- you can access those sections of the site via the pulldown menus that run across the top of the page (News, Community, Action -- though the latter is not relevant here).
    Hard to tell which method people prefer, but they're a route to the full lists as well. Slip over to the More Stories bar at the bottom. and click there.
    The "for fun" part comes with seeing the color changes in those pulldown sections. ;) More on those soon.

    Some day, we should add an as-needed Chyron at the top of the home page, with notices such as "We are experiencing technical difficulties, please be patient" or "Incoming nuclear missile, seek shelter immediately". No rush :-)

    And -- it's up! Yay! Thanks for your patience.
    (Fun comments in MB's Night Owls post. There is that.) Jinx, sorta. Thanks for bringing one of them here.
