Title: Compendium Pages Disappearing
Post by: Kodokami on December 14, 2018, 12:55:44 pm
I noticed some pages on the Compendium encylopedia are occasionally disappearing. Links sometimes lead to a dead end, giving the message:
Quote
Page not found

The page you were looking for could not be found.

Refreshing the page a few times may bring it back, so I don't think the links are dead, completely. Has anyone else had this problem?

I had the same experience yesterday while looking over some stuff. I thought it was just my internet...

Had that happened yesterday as well. Since it only happened once, I thought it was just a one-time thing. Had yet to visit the encyclopedia today.

It's been a completely random issue for me. Sometimes I'll click a link and be fine, go back to look at something else, come back to the first link and it goes 404.

I figured there were some mass edits going on or something, but since I haven't been around in years I got no clue.

We're aware now (Ramsus will investigate his next batch of free time).

Until then, use this format as a workaround:

For example,

Makes you wonder where those doujins  are, just waiting to be scanned after twenty plus years.

MediaWiki's JSON rendering API keeps returning 500 errors on certain pages. All of the custom themed pages use that API to render their content.

I haven't had time to investigate further.

Mt. Woe (https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Mt._Woe.html) seems to be consistently giving Page not Found messages for me.

Plus the regularly occurring 502 errors. I've had them two out of the past three days or so.

If your browser runs bookmarklets, make a bookmark with this as the target.
Click it whenever a page gives you a problem to be taken to the alternate wiki URL posted by ZeaLitY.

Code: [Select]
javascript:window.location="https://www.chronocompendium.com/wiki/index.php/"+window.location.href.match(/\/Term\/(.+?)\.html/)[1]

If your browser does not run bookmarklets, save the attached as *.html and bookmark it instead. It will prompt you for the article name and take you to the alternate wiki URL for that page.

The pages that were previously disappearing should be appearing now. Try hard refreshing a few times and then post a report here in this thread if they don't.

This one is acting the same.

The other day the whole server gave that, I thought it died!

I'd say we're about due for a complete upgrade of everything the site is running on, but I won't have the time until maybe this fall.
