Traditional accretion disk models have always had problems explaining a variety of observed features of AGN, particularly the short wavelength SED in the ultraviolet and beyond, and the rapid variability. I will review possible resolutions to these problems, including the effects of outflows, opacity-driven convection in the disk, and magnetically elevated disks.
