This question is related to askbot.org/en/question/12356/questionhtml-vs-questionsummary/

I want to rebuild the summary column of the askbot_post table. Because of its name, i tried to use the following manage command:

python manage.py build_thread_summary_cache

but it was not working. What is the purpose of this command ?

Then i tried the following:

python manage.py generate_post_snippets

and it worked! Hence, given the generic name of this command, my question is: what else does this command ? Can i lose some information with it ? Is it only about rebuilding some secondary informations ?

The command generate_post_snippets generates post's HTML. The posts as you see them are stored in two fields: "summary" and "html". The first may contain a truncated version if the post is too long, otherwise it will be identical to the "html" - which is the full content of the post.

The build_thread_summary_cache will create cached html snippets for each question, as shown on the main page in the list of questions.

Thanks for the answer. So perhaps should those scripts be called in a migration scripts (the summaries were not automatically filled while migrating from a 0.7.22 install).
