After a long time away from this wee project, I finally got around to doing some work on the links section. Not finished, but it is slightly tidier. Not all of the popup menu -> option list type transformations are done yet, nor has the submit page been tested.

However, you can at least browse the links section now without getting this :lol:

I've finally gotten around to fixing a few issues, particularly several of those stubborn bits of layout that thanks to the lack of inherited CSS properties were showing the wrong colour font (black) when used on a dark background.

The regex involved is a bit lairy and I managed to get a few PCRE errors along the way. They should be stomped now, but if anybody encounters one, please let me know.

I've also added an experimental "small width" mode that tries to reduce the screen width requirements. This is primarily aimed at people using ibrowse/aweb on native modes. This reduces the banner size and rearranges the navigation option lists that the proxy puts in place of some of the original popup navigation menus into a second strip underneath the main navigation (see attached image).

To test this, use the following link
int p; // A

What's up with proxy? Doesn't seem to work here now:

You don't have permission to access / on this server.

 Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Hi,

Looking into it now.

-edit-

All the files, directories and what not are still there and permissions seem OK. There has been some server maintenance going on with the hosting provider, I wonder if they've messed something up.

The proxy is fine, it's amiga.org that's giving the error message.

The comments in that source are generated by the proxy. My guess is that amiga.org no longer likes my webserver reading content *sniff*

At this moment, I don't know. It could be many things.

Strange, the proxy logs look more or less normal until today. I'll have to get my pipe and deerstalker and get back to you on that one.

The issue should now be fixed.

It seems the IP range covering my server was blocked. As the proxy had the blessing of the site owners, I can only assume this was an error and I've added an exception for the specific IP of the server.

I was reminded by Cammy's latest entry into the gallery that I'd added a size switcher to the proxy and forgotten to wire it into the user interface.

I've now added that feature along with one that attempts to store your whether or not you are using it and have hidden the disclaimer into a cookie on your local machine.

If you are using amiga.org via the proxy on a smaller screen size, try clicking the "640 wide screen?" link under the menu bar. It rearranges the menus and uses a smaller logo in an effort to improve the experience on older browsers.

Thanks a bunch, Karlos! I have now switched to 640 mode on the A600 and it fits better. Would there be any way you could reduce the size of avatars by 50%? That would really help out too!

I've updated my screenshot to show the new 640 version, as well as plugging Dynamite because I get lonely on there with no one to battle!
