Please excuse me if this is the wrong place to post this.

But is anyone else experiencing that Tapatalk no longer works with warhammer-empire? All my other sites work so figured it was this one having some problem.

I noticed that too- it started when the entire site was messed up.

Does anybody else experience visual problems with the webpage? The heading is missing and background is all black.

I also get this error - I am using IE 9 for Windows. It started after the crazy crash of last week.

Based on a bit of quick and dirty analysis, I think many problems are due to multiple images being hosted on calvinwinter.net (actually on a sub-domain http://warhammer-empire.calvinwinter.net/ ) and that site having - at a guess, looking at the resolved result - its hosting expired.

I'm having the same issues and am using the latest version of Firefox. All addons and subprograms/security are up to date. Firefox has been having lots of problems with different sites since the U.S. passed the law that makes information mining legal.  This issue has cropped up on all browsers except those that are owned or operate with Google.

At my Uni, I was having a scripting error that prevented me from posting assignments online.  Here it is specifically visual as the backgrounds and pictures have disappeared in addition to half of the scripts.  The links/commands can still be highlighted and selected; but until you mouse over them, you are blind to everything but the main link trees at the top, the posts themselves, and the tools w/ emotes for creating them.

I just pulled up E-Internet explorer and navigated to the site using Bing. No issues were detected at all.  I would change browsers, but security is compromised by the other browsers.  I could care less about tracking, but am maintaining Firefox for now to discourage data-mining. (Which should be illegal as it leads to identity theft, but is not.)

Everything seems to be working for me now. I have made no changes to my system (although it is possible there has been an automatic update I have not noticed). I am using Windows 7, IE9.

The quick reply box is immensely wide. I am currently on Safari on an Ipad, but have the same on Chrome on my desktop. Its a bit annoying to type texts longer then one line, as you loose the overview of what's written.

For the Ipad its really annoying, as it zooms auto to fit page width meaning I have to zoom in -500%-800% to be able to read a thread. And yes, thats with every pageview!

I get an error msg at the top of the main page;


Notice: Undefined index: mod_cache in /home/uvswwxfs/public_html/theforum/Sources/Load.php on line 1538

I don't know what it means, also the border is all black for me. Is it supposed to be another colour?

I am using Firefox 12. I am not using any crazy add-ons or anything. Just the usual Java and Shockwave stuff.

All of the web host's servers were affected, I had the same issue over on the Ogre Stronghold (we have the same web host as Warhammer-Empire). They're working on fixing the security issue on their servers now.

Indeed :(

Thankfully it wasn't really an attack targeted at Warhammer sites, the hacker basically hacked our web host's servers and presumably ran some sort of script to change the index.php files of every site on the web host's hacked servers to show the "hacked" message that appeared earlier. This would've affected hundreds of sites, if not more.

The same hacker did this to 700,000 sites back in September 2011:

Hey guys working on a few things...

- Social media icons are fixed
- Tapatalk is fixed (sorry I would have fixed it way sooner but didn't know it was down)

The reason the background images disapeered a while back is because they are hosted on my server, and I was a tad bit late paying my bill  :icon_redface: They are on my server because a while ago we were very close to our bandwidth limits so I moved them over to reduce the load on the W-E webserver.

A lot of the recent problems on the site have been caused by the hosting company that we use, and we're working on things behind the scenes to make sure that these issues stop happening.

EDIT: quick reply being too wide should be fixed too

Not sure if this is related to what others have reported, my browser is firefox 12 on Windows 7. The site is all white with all text and links aligned left. It's still useable, but the format is almost a basic layout with no background or formatting.

You're on the mobile version, I think. Check the url for a stray 'm'

Nope, no 'm'. Also same url since i have it bookmarked.


Edit: Oddly, it resolved itself when I cleared my history. I am not a computer whiz, but many of you are probably mentally smacking me for some simple fix that completely passed me by.

thanks for help though :)
