rendering of LinuxQ


I have been having some difficulty with the rendering of LQ.org When I click to go to the forum index I will only get the top of the page (not the list of forums). Also when I do finally get to the index and choose a forum, sometimes it will also only render the top of the page, the same goes for when I select a thread. I usually use galeon. I tried:
1. Switching to MozillaFirebird
2. Switching to Mozilla
3. Uninstalling/Reinstalling Galeon using:
a. apt
b. and rpm

I even wiped out the .galeon config file in my home dir. Nothing has helped. Now obviously sometimes it will render as I am here now. But I must try several times before it will work. I do not have this problem with any other website (so far) and I am at a loss as to what to try next. Any ideas folks?

is this about the M$ flash advert again? this has been reported a number of times, and is being sorted out presently, thanks.

this should have been posted in Website Questions and Suggestions btw...

Ok I was unaware there was a problem. I can see the flash ad. It is really everything below it. But perhaps it causing the browser to believe it is done loading.

Well I had assumed it was a software rendering problem actually.

Is that safe? I can't think of why it wouldn't be but I do not want to allow an unknown entity in to my list of known hosts.

This is one reason I should express to everyone to perform a search or take a peek at the Website Questions and Suggestions forum, a place where news and updates for this site are posted at all times. Thanks.

no hasn't been removed to my knowledge. But how do you that? Not to get to far off topic but where do you put that in the file and in what format?

in your /etc/hosts file, just put:

"0.0.0.1 www.burstnet.com"

It works great, I just did it and it solves my problem.

You could also use 127.0.0.1 instead of 0.0.0.1 if you wanted.


All this does is say recieve all files from burstnet.com from that IP (your local ip in this case), so nothing will be recieved from the actual website.

Well, it's not the greatest idea though. Although I'm just guessing but sometimes sites check to see if you are correctly loading things (even sometimes an ad) and if you aren't, then the site will not display. I doubt this is a problem with LQ, but it could cause you problems elsewhere...

Cool
