Hijacking to Dan Verssen Games site?

Postby Canuckwerty » December 14th, 2008, 9:11 pm

I'm trying to get to install a module, but when I click on it from the main module listing, I get given the same info as the right-hand side Banner ad for Dan Verssen games. This means I can't download the module.

I did some checking, some modules work (i.e. ASL), but many others have the same effect.

Anybody have any ideas?

Can you give an example of a module which is this way?

Update: My friend is using Firefox as a browser, and he was able to get the proper link. I'm running IE7, so maybe it is a browser-specific issue.

Specifically, Up Front, but I've tried several other links (Wooden Ships and Iron Man, and others at random).

The UF mod has no relation with DVG - I know , I created it. There is a link
to the mod in the modules section under UpFront.

That is the only way you can obtain the mod or email me your address and I
can send you a link

NB ! : It does say on the module page to read the read me file in the files
section how to obtain the mod

I take this back - you are correct - the module page has been edited and my
links severed, and I haven't touched it in over 3 months.
RK, Joel, might want to look in to that

As a matter of interest - it seems to be true for a every module listed on
the website!

More links that are being redirected:

Formula De
Tafl
etc.

(I'm not going to go through the whole list, but it's not just your module)

I'm sure it's some sort of webpage snafu, nothing nefarious.

Thanks for the quick reply, Tim.

Fine for me in Firefox, breaks as described in IE.

From a quick glance at the HTML returned, it *looks* like it's where
the November / pledge month stuff is commented out. It actually has an
opening comment ('<!--') before *and after* the section, rather than a
closing comment after.

Not sure how come FF manages to work out what was *meant* rather than
what was written... ;)

Cheers,
Tim.

You should email Rodney so he knows that this is broken, in case he doesn't
happen to read this thread.

If your using the beta's this can be found in the preferences
