Unable to view domain-mapped blogs
I was wondering if I’m the only one who has this problem or if others experience it too.
You are not alone … lol … I leave this response to staff … I’m hungry so I’m going to eat supper now ;)
Oooh, this does not take me to my happy place.
I didn’t know how to break it to you gently, rain … and I too have a domain hosted here … didn’t want to cause a stampede … Beloved has said supper is served (he’s sexy and he cooks!) … I’m out of here.
She told me it’s happening on my blog, and I emailed Support on I think Friday. http://raincoaster.com
I also experienced this on rain’s blog intermittently but I’m not sure if it was on Thursday or Friday.
I just got an email from England saying that the link to my blog goes nowhere.
I noticed it a few days ago on Raincoaster’s and Engtech’s blogs. Yesterday I was browsing through some more blogs, and it appears that all the ones that use domain mapping (removing the ‘wordpress.’ part from the URL) have this problem.
I’ll send in a support request as well.
Edit: Eh? Support is closed? Surely they can receive email while they’re AFK, no?
An email from OMG England? :)
It’s not all domain mapped blogs. I just loaded up Raincoasters. Haven’t tried anyone elses. I’m too lazy.
I’ve tried my own blog, Raincoaster’s and Engtech’s, no problems. Not sure if this is on any of them, but I was wondering if it might have anything to do with the snap preview? I know a few people have complained it’s caused problems with pages loading…
I’m not able to reproduce this on raincoaster.com or internetducttape.com. Have you tried this with different browsers, and different machines?
As for the Snap preview, you can disable that for your blog from the blog admin (Presentation -> Extras).
I had no difficulty connecting with either rain or engtech’s domains just now and I know that snap previews were disabled on both of those blogs shortly after their introduction.
I’ve tried again to view those blogs in Epiphany, and it works just fine there. Firefox however keeps reloading those pages unless I turn off JS. I don’t have any other computers here to test with.
I thought the problem was in the “function addLoadEvent(…” script, because it looks like it has to do with loading the page, but I noticed that it’s in the source of the WP.com front page too, and that one loads/displays just fine.
Could the problem be in the line with
script src='http://wordpress.com/remote-login.php?action=js&...? That one is different from the regular WP.com blogs I think.
Sorry I can’t be more help.
Hmm. Using a proxy server to log HTTP traffic, surfing to internetducttape.com gives these three requests over and over:
GET http://internetducttape.com/ GET http://wordpress.com/remote-login.php?action=js&host=internetducttape.com&id=######&back=internetducttape.com%2F GET http://internetducttape.com/remote-login.php?login=################################
Where the ##s stand for (hex) numbers I’ve removed just in case they’re sensitive info.
Anyone know what to make of that?
i don’t have any idea what all that technical stuff is, but i know you have to allow a cookie to be set in order to go to the domain-mapped site. If you deny the cookie (or have cookies turned off), you end up in the loop.
Is that it?
*removes site from blocked list and tries again*
*astonished* It works.
Dang! Does that mean I have to allow cookies from every domain-mapped wordpress.com blog I visit? I hate having tons of unnecessary cookies. *grumble grumble*
Well, thanks for clearing up that mess Judy. You get today’s Awesome Support Forumer award :)
*off to tell WP.com to cut down on the baked sugar*
Of course (heel of hand hits forehead). Thanks judy!
