"Operation: Missing Files/Broken Links. Report them HERE!!!"

What the title says. Please report broken links/missing files from anywhere on the site here in this thread. Provide a link to the page where the broken link is, and name what it is if there are multiple links on that page. I know there are quite few of them so I'll be leaving this thread here in the General Discussion forum for a while before moving it elsewhere. A new file storage system has been put into place, and all files will eventually be archived there. This should see many broken links restored, and keep links from dieing due to off-site hosting going dead/being altered, etc. If you have some of the missing files, please post what you have.

Thanks.

These maps of the Pomarj seem to be missing.

I have begun fixing some links I could find the files for. This is a beyond tedious process, for though we have a massive amount of files, the file names are often not descriptive enough to know exactly what version each is(i.e. who made them)- especially the map images. But the fixing of the broken links has begun. Most of my other tasks are completed, except editing articles for The Oerth Journal #26(gotta get that finished soon), and so I will continue plugging away at this slowly but surely.

Please continue to report any broken links you find in the Downloads section and use the Report Broken Link function provided there, as it creates list of the broken links that I can easily view. Plenty of broken Downloads links have already been reported, and so I'll be starting there.

And with that the first broken link has been fixed, and Abysslin's very popular Map of the Flanaess map is back up.

I have found the zip file for the Pomarj paper-sized map and fixed the link to it. However, I do not have the poster-sized map file.

EDIT: Dave C. sent me the other file(thanks Dave), so both are now fixed. Two broken Article links down, likely a bazillion more broken Article links left to go. Laughing (That's the madness starting to take hold.)

All help is greatly appreciated. Cool

There is is no need to report on broken Downloads links. Though not all links are fixed, it is pretty much under control(at least as much as it can be). Some Downloads will remain, pending me finding a copy of the files such that I can fix them. If it turns out that copies of files cannot be located, those particular Downloads will likely be removed altogether(as they will just annoy people and spawn further messages about unrepairable broken links).

EDIT: All but 2 maps in the Downloads section are now fixed. Adventures are all fixed, but need to be added to. Fixed many other popular file links as well.

People may submit content to the Downloads area by using the "Add Download" function just below the Search function on this page HERE, and by sending any files to be downloaded to editors<at>canonfire<dot>com.

Keep the downloadable content to appropriate material folks, as every submitted Download goes through a review process before being posted.

Also, it seems that I may need a more active helper. Anybody who wishes to become a helper(i.e. the kobold tied to the 10' pole I use when entering dungeons) need only apply here for directions. I can only promise you fame and glory, and the occasional springing dart or pit trap. You know you want to. Happy

Are you interested in missing links from the Articles section? If so:

http://www.canonfire.com/cfhtml/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=489

which points to:

http://www.canonfire.com/cfhtml/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=getit&lid=120

My apologies for taking up your time if not, and my thanks for the effort you're putting in.

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

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

See my comment here:
http://www.canonfire.com/cfhtml/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownloadcomments&lid=87&ttitle=Rhennee_Vetha_Prestige_Class


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

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?

Check again. All Articles are still there. Must be a server glitch.

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

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

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

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.

The link to Oerth Journals link in the features section on the the left hand side goes to a page where all the actual links to the journals are broken. I found the link to the new site.

http://www.canonfire.com/cfhtml/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=13

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

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

The reason some article 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.
