I was having a look at some FH related search terms in google, to see if the site is ranked correctly. Google is actually linking to the FH main website on rank 1, which is very good of course and to be expected. But, this is where the problem is.

Google (and others) are linking to the splash page (root or index.php), which is usually there asking if you want the flash enabled site or the normal one. Well let's just say it is not a splash page anymore. It only states the following:

"© Forgotten Hope Mod Team 2009"

But it does not link to the main.php. For a first time visitor it is unclear where to go from here. I have my trusty bookmark, but not everyone has that. And search engine crawlers will not see your new news articles either (well unless you post it at other blogs as well with backlinks :P)

I didn't know where to put this, the first thing that popped into my head was "suggestions." So here's my suggestion :D

Might want to look into this!

The splash page loads fine for me. I'm not sure I understand the problem here.

WTF! I tested it on two different computers/browsers! And now it works again. Who's gone and done a quick fix here :naughty:

The problem was that only a black page with a table which contains the copyright text was shown. Not even the source contained anything relating to the main.php. Ah well at least it works again, glitch ftw?

I'll be over here...

In the corner, at the vending machine...

If anyone needs me...

I get the same. The first google entry is the index page. The index page does not show up at the first try. All you get is: "© Forgotten Hope Mod Team 2009" I got to open it twice to make the page actually loading completely and show up.

I've seen it only happen on firefox and other mozilla based browsers
