technical difficulty?

Hey, has anyone else been getting this error message sometimes when trying to load the main bar community?

error message

I've been periodically getting it for a few months now. Sometimes refreshing will make the community actually load, and sometimes it won't. Is this just a problem on my end, and if so, anyone have ideas on how to fix it?

Yeah, DW did a code push back in November that broke the way custom CSS loads. Load the community in your own style to fix it.

As long as you don't have anything custom in your own CSS, it will work.

Yeah, the mods are aware, and I believe it's even on the list of things to see to when they get the time, but there doesn't seem to be a readily apparent reason for why only the main comm is broken, while the back room seems to be fine. \o/

I've been getting that, too. It's really annoying when trying to load tagged entries, which I bet is going to make tag wrangling more frustrating.

As I pointed out below, Anna showed me a link in chat which gets around this error--you can load tags into your own style. If you wanted to look at Teja, for example, you can do it thusly: http://milliways-bar.dreamwidth.org/?style=mine&tag=teja. Longer tags require a plus sign, like baze+malbus.

Yes, loads. It's a pain in the arse, but I find loading the bar though another channel helps. Like, if it won't quit on reloads, I go into the back room, and then click though to the bar from there. It mostly works.

It happens to everybody at times, and the mods are well aware of it. There do seem to be differences depending on platform -- I hardly ever get it on my little Linux computer that is running Mint and Chromium, but quite persistently on my Kindle Fire running Silk.

If you're really stuck, and you get notifs in your inbox, you can click on the link from the inbox and get to the post direct. The main comm usually loads within five or six refreshes even without using your own style.

ALSO! If you want to look at tags without triggering this error, you can look at tags in your own style! If you wanted to look at Teja, for example, you can type it up thusly: http://milliways-bar.dreamwidth.org/?style=mine&tag=teja

Good luck!
