Website Tutorial Links Broken

  • Hello,

    Most of the links on this page scirra.com/tutorials are returning the following error: (When you are not logged in to the forum)

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    (Still can't use the forum "insert hyperlink" to insert the link for you, sorry!)

    Thanks....

  • Try Construct 3

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • Strange, it's working perfectly fine for me.

    If I direct you to a random tutorial can you access directly the tut, or are you experiencing the same error ?

    What browser/version are you using ?

    Maybe an update to the latest version (if yours is not already up to date) might help resolve some of the quirks.

  • Hello Kyatric,

    If I come to scirra.com (not logged in to forum), click on the upper right-hand link (tutorials), then click on random tutorial (or any of the other tutorial links), I get the error. If I am logged into the forum, I do not get the error and all the tutorials I clicked on so far seem to be in working order.

    I am using FireFox 6.0.2

    Here's what I get (sorry for such a big paste!

    Server Error in '/' Application.

  • ha it happens only to non-logged user so.

    Well thanks to your log, I think Tom will be able to trace that nasty bug and take it out.

    Thank you for the report, keep an eye on this topic.

  • Hello again,

    There's another issue that one might consider looking into, this also only occurs if I am not logged in but just visiting the site.

    Every time you click on a link another browser tab is opened and if one does a lot of searching on the site while not logged in you end up with a whole ton of opened tabs. This is a non-issue if you are logged in as a member but if you are just visiting, well, it can sorta get out of control!

    Thnx!

    PS And one more thing... it would be nice if we didn't receive the 404 page not found when you click on the help features in Construct 2, pretty please! <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • The same problem exists on the download pages!

  • Yikes! Nasty bug, should be fixed now thanks for the spot! It would of only been like this for around 6 hours, it wasn't a long term problem.

  • Hello again,

    I don't know if this is actually all site related but I just installed the latest version of C2 and then when I clicked on the Beginners Guide to Construct 2 (in the actual program itself), this is the error I encountered when it opened the page. I was not logged in as a forum user at the time:

    Sorry for all the yucky posts, maybe I should take a nap, get a tan, take a drive..... :(
