Sorry I haven't replied to this thread in some time. Regarding the previous post, I only have a total of 10 image files for all of the Cartography & Geography Articles that are posted, and some of those are just thumbnail images. Not every article has a link to a map image in it, though most do, and some links lead off-site and are defunct. I can do nothing about these latter defunct links, other than host the missing file (s) on Canonfire! (and update the links of course), but only in the event that I either have that file squirreled away somewhere and can find it, or if somebody else has it and can provide it.

If anyone has missing files for any Articles, then drop me a PM and let me know, and I will see about updating things.

Canonfire!: Cartography & Geography Section

Map of Glacial Flanaess: Thumbnail and link are broken from dropbox.
http://www.canonfire.com/cf/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=995&mode=flat&order=0&thold=0

The Map of the Gran March: Map link broken (site no longer exists that was hosing it).
http://www.canonfire.com/cf/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=900&mode=flat&order=0&thold=0
The map can be found here:
http://sheldomarvalley.pbworks.com/w/page/16379245/Gran%20March%20political%20map
If we could copy this over to the CF dropbox and linked to that instead, that would cool.

Greyhawk Adventurerís Atlas Introduction and Part 1 through 12 plus the appendices: All of the dropbox links are broken.

Basically the entire Cartography section needs some attention.

I was planning to do a Spotlight on Canonfire! post on the Facebook group, but this section is a hot mess.

Thanks,

The forum search function still has errors, but could at least the link be fixed?
Change the "cf" section to just "cf."

Thanks

DLG,

I have a temporary fix for you. Follow this link for now http://oerthjournal.blogspot.com/p/oerth-journal-downloads.html

It is the Oerth Journals blog and you can download all 26 OJ's from this blog.

I hope this helps.

Later

Not sure if you want to update the landing page or the link to go directly there.

not sure if it is related to this old report... but there seems to be a similarly described error at the same location,,,,
the error reported is as follows
The requested URL /oerthjournals/OJ_06.pdf was not found on this server.
it occurs when using

I left that comment long time ago. Is there no one who is notified when someone comments on a download?

Not if you only leave a comment. You also have to click on the "Report Broken Link" button after leaving your comment. That is what reports the broken link. The comment option merely allows one to attach an explanation of the problem they are having. Otherwise, without clicking the "Report Broken Link" button, you have just left a comment which may, or may not in this case, be noticed.
The best way to report a broken link is to do so using the "Report Broken Link" text link near the bottom of the entry on the Downloads page. It doesn't include a comment, but it notifies us immediately, and provides a file link for the admin as well. The Vetha link was fixed a while back. Sorry that I didn't reply to this post. The file may be found in the Downloads section HERE, or more directly HERE.

I cleaned up a bunch of busted links in the Downloads section, and restored some files that had gone missing(many more to go).

As usual, continue to post any broken links in this thread, with a description of the the problem and a link to the page that the broken link is on, and I'll look into it as soon as I am able to do so.

Thanks Cebrion! I appreciate the explanation. Glad to know I wasn't missing out on anything. Smile

The reason some articles have lots of comments listed, but actually have no comments is due to a previous spam attack with dog-piled spammed links(many leading to viruses/inappropriate content) in the comments. When the spam was deleted, the system didn't update the true number of comments remaining for some reason.

As to the comment you posted, that is an example of what snuck through last time(in 2008). Seems somebody missed that one.

I'm not sure if this is the proper place, but it seemed the best thread to post this in. I have two concerns that I hope you will address:

First, I see that some articles have many comments, but I can't seem to find all of them. Only about five comments are ever available for my perusal. I can't seem to figure out how to access the others.

Second, below is the last comment available to read on the article titled, "An Overview of Oerik" by Scottenkainen. If it really is a spam advertisement, as it appears, please remove it. (Note that though my copy doesn't include actual links, the original comment did.) Thanks! Smile

I am also trying to retrieve these maps. This link is still broken and the comments on this article has about 2 full pages of spam as well.

You are trying to visit e-mail? That usually doesn't work out so well when it doesn't belong to you.

On the OerthJournal Main Page, the link: oerthjournal (at) gmail (dot) com takes me to this page: http://www.canonfire.com/cf/.

The same webaddress (though not an actual link) in the OJ discussion thread simply fails to work at all.

And, yes, I did replace the (at) with an '@' and the (dot) with a '.' Razz

I am getting this as well and thought I had inadvertantly altered my security settings. Are we all seeing no articles on the home page and none in the categories?

If we temporarily modify the robots.txt file to allow a quick scan, we could use an automated link validator like http://validator.w3.org/checklink?uri=www.canonfire.com&hide_type=all&depth=&check=Check for example, which would be much more thorough and hopefully more accurate too :D

I am interested in any and all broken links, from anywhere really. Heck, I might as well include the Downloads section too. I am working according to my own plan, but the squeaky wheel gets the grease so to speak. Any reported broken links will immediately go to the top of the list to dealt with as soon as is possible. As you will notice, the broken link you reported is already fixed. Cool

Also, the way in which you reported the broken link is perfect, so thanks for that. Keep those broken links coming! Happy
