Hi, This diary: https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2020/2/6/1866809/-PWB-Peeps-Fursday-Fur-amp-Fethrs-We-Salute-You
was queued on both the PWB Peeps group and my personal draft list for 1:45 p.m. EST today. While it posted correctly to the group and "Recent Diaries" _on the front page_, it has failed to appear on this list: https://www.dailykos.com/diaries (where some people still look for new diaries). I've tried unpublishing and republishing without result. Can you help? Many thanks, Clio2

    Hello, and thanks for asking. (Fun and engaging pix, btw.)

    I am pretty sure that the answer has to do with the age of the draft. Whenever a story draft is first opened, it gets assigned a number right then. You can see it in the URL, and it does not change.

    I don't recall the precise cutoff, but there is a rolling limit on the /diaries page in terms of how far back it reaches to populate the list there, based entirely on the story "number" as assigned, and it's a different process from the way the Recent Stories sidebar is pulled & populated.

    I'm sorry you ran into this odd little glitch! But it'll be obsolete, finally, fairly soon as we complete our transition off of the DK4/Perl pages. "Fairly soon" is a squishy concept, you understand.

    Meanwhile, it's best not to salvage a really old draft. Much preferable to c&p the draft contents into a brand new shell if need be.
