here's a simple temporary iframe with buttons to navigate until site fixed... no need to download extension or anything... I'll keep it up for a day or two ..

Great idea. Even simpler than my TamperMonkey fix. Thanks for this. Everyone should vote your comment up so the link stays easily visible. If this happens, edit your comment to place the link at the beginning so it can be seen directly from the forum page in the top comments.

And it works on all browsers easily. Great.

What's with the sexy girl holding the baby and hiding a child behind her? It doesn't seem to go with the rest of the site. An inside joke?

Brad Byrne! That's a cool name! Sounds like it came straight from a novel.

;) that's Lynda Carter (wonder women)... one's of the job's I did.... before the f#cking Banks destroyed the economy ....

She could save me any day! Hope your company picks up again.

[-] 1 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 11 months ago

thanks ;)

Man I'm dumb sometimes. I was using your iframe then clicked on the site's links (not the links you created on the iframe) and they worked flawlessly. For a minute I was thinking "How did he do that?" WTF? Then I realize it was my TamperMonkey script still running. Lol.

[-] 1 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 11 months ago

hehehe

You know, you're lucky this site doesn't have much traffic these days, else it could impact your server.

[-] 2 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 11 months ago

I thought about that... and was going to use ajax... but then realized... that the only traffic to my site is the initial page load... after that the page should stay cached ... and iframe should load direct from OWS.. ??? I think ... havn't tested it

[-] 4 points by Renneye (3160) 11 months ago

I think the site is fixed! Thanks everyone, for all the tips!

Felt like...Community!

[-] 1 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 11 months ago

cool ; )

Not quite yet because a reload still takes a rather long time to complete (the digital certification/signature may also need to be ported?). Can someone figure out why the digital certificate is so slow to be completed and fix it?

[Removed]

[-] -1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

Ya, you should be right. Depends on the setup of the client, but most people here probably have cache enabled by default.

Re. current forum woes, this comment was the most useful to me just now - so thanx bw for the below :

  • ''You can get to the forum with - occupywallst.org/forum/ - but you have to put that in every time to refresh when you leave the page.''

I am suggesting having at least 2 tabs open if you are serious about posting comments in this situation.

Also peeps - howTF did things come to this situation only a few days before the forthcoming Monsatan March ?! On Saturday the 25th ?!! Huh ?!!! Hmmmm & ...

Occupy Monsanto Worldwide, Saturday May 25, 2013 !!!

It takes 2 minutes to install and works great.

[-] 3 points by shadz66 (17768) 11 months ago

Yeah Tr@shy, I saw that fix solution from you and I use Chrome too but I don't know how to say this without hurting your feelings ... so I'll just simply and calmly state without quite going as far as 'GF' below that .. I don't trust you either ;-(

multum in parvo ...

[-] 3 points by shooz (26717) 11 months ago

Good thinking.....................:)

Notoriety matters.

[-] 0 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

Aren't you a programmer? You were going on and on about the ins and outs of HTML just a few minutes ago. Aren't you able to read the code to see what it does? It's only a few lines long.

[-] 3 points by shooz (26717) 11 months ago

Are you assuming again, while you ignore actual issues?

Why yes, of course you are.

How about a comment on a win?

[-] -1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

You guys are still having problems with the abortion issue? Damn, we solved that ages ago in all the other developed nations of the world. Sorry if I'm not interested in your US Christian problems. They don't exist where I'm from. I'm with OWS to go against capitalism, not to solve the religious problems of the Bible Belt.

[-] 2 points by shooz (26717) 11 months ago

Compared to what?

[-] -1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

You still have problems from religious idiots who want to limit the rights of women to have abortions?

[-] 2 points by shooz (26717) 11 months ago

compared to what?

Compared to where?

[-] -1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

Read back two comments ago. I'll use bold to help you.

Damn, we solved that ages ago in all the other developed nations of the world.

[-] 3 points by shooz (26717) 11 months ago

That's not a forthright answer.

It's evasive, to the point of being a lie.

Plus it's generic, and not necessarily true.

It also begs another question.

What's a developed nation, and who defined it?

[-] -1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

Anyhow, you're near Famington, Michigan right? With DKAtoday in that retirement home. Do you really have problems with religious fanatics up there?

[-] 3 points by shooz (26717) 11 months ago

Frankly?

I can't wait for admins to put the site back to 100% and then you get banned again.

It would be fitting.

And when you come back again, you will prove again that your also insane.

Because you will once again, be expecting a different result.

You have become the definition of insanity.

Better, would be if they do that, before then............................:)

[-] 3 points by shooz (26717) 11 months ago

See, lies, and logical fallacies.

And you said you didn't do that.

So that's another lie.

So where's that part about where you start being honest?

Hey.....I know.

You could prove you're really Thrassy and post that penis pic again!!!!

[-] -1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

I visited Famington. It's a nice place. It wasn't too religious.

[-] -1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

The point is I'm not interested in your Bible Belt problems. I follow OWS because it fights against capitalism. Fight your local problems at the local level. Don't ask me to comment on issues that don't affect me in the least.

[-] 2 points by shooz (26717) 11 months ago

All you've ever been is evasive.

That hasn't changed.

So now you believe you are OWSleader?

That would make you evasive and deluded.

Try this one again.

just to get a feel for reality.

[-] 0 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

You don't need to use it. I just put it there to help whoever is annoyed by the link problem. If you don't trust me, and still want to use it, just show the code to a programmer you trust. He'll be able to tell you it does what I claim it does, and nothing more.

I coded it for myself because the problem bothered me, and I decided to share it. That's all. I believe in sharing. In communism. Anarcho-communism to be precise.

You don't have to worry about hurting my feelings. I just use this site for learning and for fun. I don't take the comments of others personally.

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 11 months ago

Yeah, something strange is happening.

Might be a glitch. Or a redirect hack.

[-] 2 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 11 months ago

is this just my computer behaving like this ?

[-] 5 points by beautifulworld (20418) 11 months ago

You can get to the forum with occupywallst.org/forum/ but you have to put that in every time to refresh when you leave the page.

[-] 3 points by Renneye (3160) 11 months ago

I'm using your method in the interim. Thanks bw!

[-] 3 points by beautifulworld (20418) 11 months ago

Sure. It's a pain, but it works, and thanks to BradB too, he has a nice post with the link so you never really have to leave the forum. Just look to the right under recent posts.

[-] 2 points by Renneye (3160) 11 months ago

Yep! I wouldn't have found yours had it not been for Brad's! Kudos to both of you!

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 11 months ago

I just manually cut and modify the web address in the search bar.

left click and hi-light the bits between the "/" and right click to delete.

http://occupywallst.org/web/20130202050845/http://occupywallst.org/forum/

becomes this

http://occupywallst.org/forum/

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (20418) 11 months ago

Yes that works too: http://occupywallst.org/forum/ is what we want!

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 11 months ago

It's a hacker for sure.

I'm thinking the admin are busy organising the monsatan protests.

I'll be heading to Brisvegas for the march here.

We've combined two cities into one big march, to give it more visual impact. I'll be filming some of it.

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (20418) 11 months ago

Nice. I am going to my local march on Saturday, too. The timing of the forum's problems is certainly interesting.

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 11 months ago

Yes, the timing is interesting.

My puter has been hacked as well, I'm thinking.

Video files from specific sites will freeze my connection, requiring a restart. Video from other sites run as normal. I guess I should be using a proxy.

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (20418) 11 months ago

Weird. I just found a load of spam in my email that landed there in the past few days. Never had that before.

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 11 months ago

It all could be unrelated, of course.

Time will tell. Might be meeting up in a FEMA camp one day. LOL.

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (20418) 11 months ago

LOL. It probably is unrelated, but it's definitely weird.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26717) 11 months ago

No.

the site is suffering.

Surf away and come back to get it to work for a while.

[-] 1 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 11 months ago

thanks ; )

Yes.

Proving that online petitions actually work.

Of course, it doesn't say a word about these kids.

[-] 0 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

I could write a simple script for you to fix the problem. Do you use Firefox, or another browser?

BTW - It's all links up top, not just the Forum link.

[-] 1 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 11 months ago

I'm using Chrome

[-] 0 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

OK. I'm going to do a script for Chrome since I also use that browser. It shouldn't take me too long. I see the problem. The links are annoying the hell out of me, so I'll do this.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (21785) 11 months ago

just so we are clear----you show up last night when it started. You miraculously show up today to make a repair job? REALLY?

[-] -1 points by JackPulliam3rd (205) 11 months ago

What put you in such a fucking bad mood today?

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (21785) 11 months ago

Dealing with multiple ID right wing douche bags.

[-] -2 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

I have yet to see a day when she doesn't scatter profanity and kindergartener insults all over the forum. It's her thing.

[-] -2 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

The site was moved by jart onto her own servers. She forgot some configuration aspect, and the links broke. It only took a little research to find this out. This is what needs to be encouraged in America, serious research instead of conspiracy theories and pseudosciences.

Why Alex Jones it when there are ways to acquire real evidence and get closer to real truths? Why do you personally choose to Alex Jones it every time? Do you not believe in amassing evidence before accusing someone of a bad deed?

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (21785) 11 months ago

No, I got the little pop up last night that the site had been taken over.

So, why don't we just skip the bullshit and you 'fess up.

[-] -1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

Again, why Alex Jones it when you can find evidence for your claims? Ask jart first before making accusations. Post what your popup said exactly so we can Google the meaning of the message. Promote evidence based critical thinking, not the creation of fantastic delusions in the style of Jones. Nurturing conspiracy theory type logic doesn't help OWS, it hurts it a great deal.

[-] 0 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

Red herring. If you can't contribute to a thread, don't. If you have something which is unrelated to say, start your own thread. Try using the forum in an appropriate manner, it makes if better for everyone.

[-] -1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

OK. Thank you for your opinion. You should start a new posting about this issue though. It's always best to remain on topic.

[-] -3 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

You can believe what you want. It's a problem at the server level and I have nothing to do with it. Some administrator changed the base URL which messed up all the links. You should ask jart or another moderator about it. I can't fix it on the server level since I don't have server access. This is not my site. Iv'e been here everyday of the week. But, if you want to be like a conspiracy theorist and magically create coincidences and then transform them into evidence then fine by me. You may believe what you wish. You have many delusions about me, and they don't bother me at all. Some people need to create fantasy in their lives to escape boredom.

I did make a fix and it works on my setup with Chrome. It's a fix with JQuery (client side).

http://occupywallst.org/forum/a-script-to-fix-the-sites-broken-links/

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (21785) 11 months ago

Anybody who operates with multiple IDs, is a fucking douche. It has nothing to do with conspiracy theories. It just makes you a douche.

[-] 1 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

OK. I'm a douche. Can we move on now, or are you going to stay stuck all day insulting others like a kindergartener?

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (21785) 11 months ago

We are going to stay right here. It matters.

[-] 0 points by wittlelittlecloud (-83) 11 months ago

Ya, noticed it today. Someone must have changed the base URL setting on the server. It's affecting all the links up top.
