Broken LDraw.org Home Page - Stephen - 2014-02-24

For the last 4 days the LDraw.org site home page has been missing a few sections.

I've browsed this from several countries and got the same result, so I assume everyone is seeing this same problem...

Confirmed from Germany.

This is the source html that is displayed:
Code:
<div class="frontbox" style="float: left !important;" >
  <h2>Parts update</h2>
  <div class="text">
    <!-- Html blob 'HomeBoxPartsUpdate' does not exist  --><br style="clear:both;" />
  </div>
</div>



<div class="frontbox" style="float: right !important;" >
  <h2>Tutorials</h2>
  <div class="text">
    <!-- Html blob 'HomeBoxTutorials' does not exist  --><br style="clear:both;" />
  </div>
</div>

And there is nothing to display!

Hmm, not sure what is issue is. I'll troubleshoot.


Re: Broken LDraw.org Home Page - Orion Pobursky - 2014-02-24

Ok. Fixed on my end. Please verify.


Re: Broken LDraw.org Home Page - Stephen - 2014-02-24

Yup.

While you are on the website... what about adding a favicon to LDraw.org?


Re: Broken LDraw.org Home Page - Stephen - 2014-02-24

It already has one, a red brick.

http://www.ldraw.org/favicon.ico

It's at the default location, rather than being specified explicitly in the markup, but I think all browsers should cope with this.


Re: Broken LDraw.org Home Page - Orion Pobursky - 2014-02-24

That reminds me the that I never updated the main site favicon to be new ones the we made. I'll do that now too.


Re: Broken LDraw.org Home Page - Philippe Hurbain - 2014-02-24

Mine doesn't show it, though it displays other websites favicons...?


Re: Broken LDraw.org Home Page - Stephen - 2014-02-24

What browser are you using?

Firefox has an about:config setting browser.chrome.favicons that if changed to false will stop unspecified favicons being loaded from root. Opera has a similar setting I think.

Perhaps it would be better if ldraw did use a link element for the icon, which is the standard nowadays.

The forum shows a blue brick - do you see that one?
