    I'm seeing a lot of '500- Internal server error' messages.

    The site got linked to from Reddit, and it's sending a tremendous amount of traffic. Trying to deal with it now!

    I've had to implement some drastic caching rules using cloudflare. The following sections will return cached pages:
    homepage
    /education/
    /textbook/
    /video-lectures/
    /worksheets/

    If you are logged in, it will show that you are not actually logged in. I will remove these cache rules ones things settle down, but it's the only way to keep the site up at the moment!

    Right now we are #14 on the reddit homepage (https://www.reddit.com). They sure do send a lot of visitors wow!

    I "logged in" and the forum promptly said I wasn't logged in.

    I deleted the allaboutcircuits cookies and it worked correctly.
