WCMS maintenance - December 12

What is happening? We will be clearing the Link checker cache on all WCMS sites.

Why is this happening? We have had reports that editing of some pages results in the page being simultaneously published (it shows that the moderation state is published) and unpublished (it has a pink background, and anonymous visitors see a “page not found” notice). Clearing the link checker cache resolves the issue that leads to this problem. If any pages are currently in this state, they will have to be republished after the link checker cache has been cleared.
