I am hoping someone can help me with this. Seems I can no longer view the website correctly. I can only go into the forums now and only by typing out the full address directly to the forums. The front page comes up with the picture, no news listed, and all the links go to that same page regardless of what I select. I tried deleting my web page history thinking it may be loading off a misload maybe, but that didn't help as well.

Which browser are you using? If you could specify what version, that would also be helpful. Also, you mean that you deleted the cookies/temp files, right? When I updated my website I made sure people did that to avoid any trouble (of course, I removed a redirect which would've really caused some issues if they didn't).

In case if you're not sure:
Go to Tools > Internet Options > Delete Cookies and Delete Files

If that doesn't work, let me know.

I'm having the same problem as SenahbirdR. Nothing shows up any where on the actual site, and I have to get to the forums by googling them.

I tried clearing both my cookies and my temp files, but it still doesn't work.

I'm using IE 6.0. T.T

Yet more reasons why everyone should switch to Firefox.

The only problems I ever have are slow loading times.

I would, except I can't install anything. Dad doesn't have me as an admin. He doesn't want me to install anything that would mess up the computer. Although I know very well what I can and cannot install. Being a geek helps.

Actually, I'd rather be running Linux. But we can't all have our way, now can we... :roll:

Web/IE weirdness

I ahve had the same problme for almost a month, on 2 different PCs w/ 2 different OSs. As much as I love to think that Firefox would fix this.... this something on your web server. The only thing I can think of is a fluke w/ the SP2 role out .. if you ran that update.

I also tried killing all my offline content .. cookies, temp files, etc with no luck.

I noticed I cant login anymore either. the login link goes back to the alomst blank home page.

I am pretty web savvy so if you have anything for me to test just let me know.

I doubt its their server.

If it was, it would be affecting the masses, not just a few.

I am also pretty web savvy, so I believe it is something on your own personal computers.

By the way, SP2 has a major security issue, so I wouldn't install it until that gets patched up.

Just some advice.

Gah, this whole issue has been driving me nuts for about a week now. It got so bad tonight that I couldn't log in either, and had to borrow someone elses computer just so I could let everyone know that this doesn't seem to be an isolated thing. Oddly enough, the computer I'm at now uses the same thing I do, which is IE 6. However, mine is freshly installed (along with the OS...stupid viruses. Grr!) so everything should be fine...there aren't really even any cookies/temp files that could be causing the trouble since this site was the first one I attempted to visit..but same problem before I reinstalled the OS.
I thought perhaps it might be related to Norton being evil as usual, but I haven't had the chance to reinstall it yet, and still the same thing...
Has anyone discovered the reason for this weirdness? I'm already being dragged away from this computer, and I need to catch up on the announcements that I missed.... :cry:

Hmm.. I'm not sure what it is at this point myself. Maybe there'd be something in Nuke's forums??
