Subpages. Pretty sure I saw the raw subpage list feature interface
members referenced at their prior location. There were a few other
times over the last week I may have run across latency problems, and
my superstitious inclination was to force a reload.

Alternately, fold members into collapsible accordion lists, interface
tagged as HTML5 summary, and members listed within details tag.

Requires a good deal of manual work to fix. Perhaps add a note in the
template for the time being that you may need to clean it up after the
move.
