Problem with loading W3schools tutorials

Recommended Posts

Guest didomi

Hello!For a couple of days now I've been trying to open the tutorials and when I click the links on the main page or type the address into the address bar I get an empty page. Actually the only pages that work are the TryIt editor examples.I was surprised that noone else seems to experience the same problem here on the forum - so the problem probably is with my browser (IE 7.0).I noticed that all the pages I can't open are 'default.asp'. Your help/feedback on this would be highly appreciated.Regards,Edited - I just installed Firefox and there is no problem. Still the issue with IE 7 persists.

Hmm, that's weird. Don't know what would cause that...Anyone else with IE7 experiencing this?

That's really weird! I have never experienced any problems of loading W3Schools with any browsers before =/Maybe you gotta change the settings of blocked/blocking sites, or something like that?It's probably something with your settings about what sites that should be shown, and who's not. But it's weird, because I haven't seen any pictures of things that shouldn't be here at W3Schools, haha.

I notice there's a comment in kaijim's profile as well:http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/index.php?showuser=2Same problem probably... :)Oh, and there was a problem with w3schools last february as well. Took me some time to dig up the thread, but here it is:http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=2386It was IE-only back then as well.I've notified kaijim of this. Thanks for letting us know.

I use IE6 right now, because I'm at my neighbours house right now, and I just tried to go to the PHP tutorial, and it worked just fine so I think it's something with your browser settings like I said in my last post too.

Yes I have exactly the same problem using IE 7 (Danish Version). The only menu-item working from the main page is the link to this Forum. All other pages opens blank, but viewing the page source, one can see that the first 19 lines actually loads (from <!DOCTYPE to <body>).I have now been using the IE 7 for quite a long time, and this is the first time I experience anything like this !

Wait - if you use IE7 do you actually not get any HTML code after <body>?
Using IE7 (Danish version), opening any page (except the link to this forum) from the main page results in a blank page.Viewing the page source I get these few lines:<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"><html><head><title>HTML Tutorial</title> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" /><meta name="Keywords" content="xml,tutorial,html,dhtml,css,xsl,xhtml,javascript,asp,ado,vbscript,dom,sql,colors,soap,php,authoring,programming,training,learning,beginner's guide,primer,lessons,school,howto,reference,examples,samples,source code,tags,demos,tips,links,FAQ,tag list,forms,frames,color table,w3c,cascading style sheets,active server pages,dynamic html,internet,database,development,Web building,Webmaster,html guide" /><meta name="Description" content="Free HTML XHTML CSS JavaScript DHTML XML DOM XSL XSLT RSS AJAX ASP ADO PHP SQL tutorials, references, examples for web building." /><meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache" /><meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache" /><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/stdtheme.css" /></head><body>My IE7 (Danish Version):post-12740-1173382514_thumb.jpgPSNo problem if I use Firefox

Those two versions of IE are the exact same build, but one is not English, I wonder if that has anything to do with it. It looks like something on the server is checking something with the browser (language maybe?) and is cancelling the response for whatever reason. I'm sure Kaijim is looking into it.

You also might want to try changing your own settings, see if you can get the problem to show up.

Please: Go to this page http://www.w3schools.com/browserdebug.asp and post the output here in the forum or to me directly with a PM.
