This is what I see when I try to go the MumsNet homepage. Am I the only one?? If I go directly to "Talk" it works normally, but if I press on the MumsNet logo it takes me again to a blank page saying "This is a test home page. It lives under "repository_root/webdocs"
I have tried cleaning the cache in case it was a broken link or anything... but it still happens! Anyone else or is my computer haunted??
This happens to me sometimes, particularly after MN has gone or is just about to go offline for maintenance. No idea what causes it but I sometimes have to do a google search for MN and access the site from there, rather than using my bookmark, afterwards.
That would make sense, though the page shouldn't be appearing even when we're under maintenance. I'll ask the server gnomes about that one. If it's showing up outside of maintenance periods though, that could indicate some other problem, so we'd definitely be interest to hear if that is the case.
Hi DamianTech, yes, it appears every time I press on my Mumsnet link, or I introduce the home page address manually. I have to add the "/talk" bit in order to get the proper page loaded. This means I can't access anything on the main page either!
I am connecting from New Zealand, I don't know if that bit of info is of any use. Thanks for looking into this.
Hi! Finally I can see the MN homepage again . The problem was solved when I updated my Avast antivirus, which was blocking other pages too, and doing really weird things. So nothing MumsNet could have done about it.
