Nevermind https is just fucking things up.
« on: December 07, 2017, 08:46:50 PM »
So I have noticed that links on google to web articles for old 3.x content on the wizards site aren't working again. They did this before when they broke all the links to these articles when they revamped the site, though I don't know if they just fucked up the links again or deleted the articles entirely. All I know is anything I try to look up that was at archive.wizards.com brings up their annoying 404 error page.

Must have been a fluke, or only concern a part of the articles. On a quick test I could still access Dead Levels: http://archive.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/cwc/20061013a

I had this problem too.  It was caused by a Chrome extension forcing https everywhere, which broke the archive.  Disable https (temporarily) and it should work fine. 
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

Ah, so https is breaking it. I wonder what they did to do that, I have had a forced https plugin for a while without issue.

Google updated an algorhithm on search yesterday too.
I couldn't find my way into a particular Sagarin stat site page.
