they used to be so common - maybe this is an evolved version . . .

Hey, I just got an idea.

How about making the main page static, and everything else dynamic?

That should be a relief for our hosting.

Moving to a non-drupal page seems ok, but we will lose our lovely design, the ISO's page, and all the info on the wiki...

THat's a bit too much to lose, right?

I can confirm that they seem to be dead. If you click on a link that does not use clean URLs (like on the links to a different comment page) it will work. That leads me to believe that either clean URLs have been screwed up by HostGator, or that some of the other pages have been deleted.

I was able to login and can see revisions and stuff, but these are all posts (PHP posts, not posts like to a forum) to the same page using dirty URLs (stuff with ?id=something after the page name). Of course, for all I know the site is actually just one page that makes itself look like many by using clean URLs and dynamic content. If that's the case, then it is obviously a problem with clean URLs. It could even be something as simple as Hostgator deleting our .htaccess file.

Who all has direct access to the server to check this out?

EDIT:
I'm now pretty certain it has to do with clean URLs getting turned off. If I manually type in http://www.puppylinux.org/?q=home/links instead of the clean URL given by the page http://www.puppylinux.org/home/links, it works fine. Same with http://www.puppylinux.org/?q=community instead of http://www.puppylinux.org/community.

Somebody with FTP/SFTP access would have to get in to fix it. Actually, Hostgator may may have to fix it depending on the privileges they give users.

Prit has been working on it and has renamed htaccess. (Sir Duncan's observation is correct.)

Prit's work is in connection with the move of the site to another host within the month (July).

Anyway, the links should be working again.

Thanks for the alert, guys. Smile

Yes, thanks to all contributors & sorters of Puppy Linux site problems

Shame about the adverts though....

see http://www.puppylinux.org/home/overview

http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/reimage.com

Can't we be more selective, than to advertise spammy/phishing/adware?

Hi Aitch .. I have not seen an option where Google will allow one to choose between ads. I know that there are other ad providers that do this. I will discuss with Raffy about this.

Even I had noticed some undesirable ads on the site.

The ads take cue from the words in the page, so close editorial supervision of the content will be essential. We have quite a number of editors. Please PM me if you would like to be upgraded to editor.

I've also put in a preference for "netbooks" or "net-tops" in the ad space, and hope that advertisers would notice this. Of course some enterprising guys have been targeting the site for their Puppy Linux CD ads.

Hi Raffy ... From what I have noticed, even if we keep static content, there can be real crazy and unrelated ads showing up. Google gets to decide most of this stuff using their algorithm. I came across this ad site called Ad brite who claim that we can approve or reject ads. We can also set a mandatory approval for every ad that is shown on the site. From their site, it looks like a popular ad network. But, I can't say for sure how the ads/payments are going to be.

Who is financing the site? Cost per year? Anyone able to sponsor it to be ad free?

(For the new site) Nobody. It's a Virtual Private Server with (prevailing rate) of US$50 monthly. Sponsors welcome. Smile

Thanks to Warren for sponsoring it in hostgator for 16 months (up to this month).

Well I think ecomoney should take the next 16months since he's the one who basically made WhoDo leave, and if he wasn't such a nob, he would humble himself to Warren and make him come back!!, I'm sure Warren would still be paying for it, If he was here. So "Show me the money? Ecomoney"
lol it rhymes

Here is the first test setup on the new server. Its basically the same site (Puppylinux.org) on the new server.

http://magicofweaving.com

Don't worry about the name. We are just using a spare domain name until some initial testing is done and the name servers of Puppylinux.org can be changed.

Please report any problems (errors, speed, responsiveness etc) you may notice.

Yes..thanks to Whodo for his hosting.

Please remember that without Whodo, tombh and crew the new (16 months old now) puppylinux.org web site would not have happened.

With Warren's support, and his paying for the hosting, it made the new setup, and now, the transitions a reality....thanks, to all the very fine people that made this happen..well done and cheers to all,

Eric

To add,

There is a way to focus Google ads, but that requires Google to have access to the cgi bin with their scripts.

I don't recommend this approach.
