It looks like 2 posts that were created while the bug was occurring are not showing up on the main page: "Donor coordination under simplifying assumptions" and "What does the election of President Trump mean for EA?"

Yep, that's right. I've reached out to both the authors and invited them to repost.

I wrote some code that had a bug. My understanding is that if you published an article, it would appear on the homepage, but if you clicked on the link, you'd get an error page (404 not found) instead of seeing the article. In addition, it wasn't clear that the article was being published, which resulted in some articles appearing multiple times.

I haven't yet had a chance to investigate the bug, but my changes were undone and the broken links deleted. Thanks to Peter Hurford, Ryan Carey, and Michael Webb for noticing and fixing the issue. And I'm sorry for introducing the bug.
