Broken LDraw.org Home Page
#1
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!

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

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.

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.

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

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?

I'm not seeing it ether (using SeaMonkey), quick difference check with a site that does show them (e.g. duckduckgo.com) shows ldraw.org misses the header info. It appear not all browsers check for the favicon.ico in the site root by default.

adding:

Code:
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

Should fix/help.

Will do. Once I locate the new icons we made since I seem to have misplaced them.

Seamonkey has the preference:
Appearance > Content > Aggressively look for web site icons when the page does not define one

If you set that, the icon would have shown for ldraw.org, but it doesn't matter now because the <link> has been added anyway.

(Although I've just noticed, it hasn't been set for the blue icon on the domain forums.ldraw.org)
