#168 Main page cannot accessed with IE


1. The main page is not accessible with IE.
The main page is redirected to "http://oprofile.sourceforge.net/news". However, it is treated as a binary file. I guess a slash should be added at the end of the link (like http://oprofile.sourceforge.net/news/\)

2. OProfile reports in the Links catalogue is no longer available.
Page http://people.redhat.com/~graydon/oprofile-reports.html is not found. Please fix or remove it.

    Problem 1: IE version 7 on Windows XP has no problem with this. What version of IE are you seeing the problem on?

    Problem 2: Fixed. In future, though, please open separate bugs for each unrelated problem.

    That's strange. I am also using IE7 on Windows XP. Attached is a snapshot.

    Have you been able to successfully access the OProfile website in the past with IE? If answer is "yes" and this problem just started to occur, then I wonder if it may be due to the fact that our website was actually broken for several days. We use php script files to contain our web site content, and these files had an extension of ".php3". After SourceForge's massive infrastructure changes, their web server didn't recognize that file extension anymore, so I had to rename them all to ".php" (done on Tuesday this week). If you tried to navigate to our website during that time with IE, maybe it's still caching bad data from when the site was broken. Try a force reload of the page and/or clearing IE's cache.

    It works now. Thank you! What you have explained should be the root cause.
