Some notes after a day of working on the assorted upgrade-related issues here:

Aside from the search engine issues, the other big problem right now has to do with code snippets in comments and the submission page. It works strangely, but it does basically work -- you'll find your HTML characters get changed to entities in the input box, and they may preview as entities, but they'll publish correctly. I've opened a bug on this. The one exception is any code snippets within angle brackets -- that text will just vanish unless you use the special [code] tags. So please use that tag for any code in your hint. (For the first time here in nearly forever, backslashes will not be eaten, so that's something!)
