digitalmars.D - tour.dlang.org is less than useless

I cannot recall it ever working.

What is it meant to take us to?

Works for me, though it hasn't always. What do you see, a blank page? I used to get that sometimes, some bug at the time.

I've only ever got a blank page. If I google it, the search result only ever take me to blank page too. I'm just using firefox 47.0.1 ... I disable a lot of useless settings...so if that did something, then it only seems to have done something for that link...which is weird. The two replies so far certainly suggest it's at my end.. I better do some troubleshooting on my side i guess ;-) If I work it out, I'll post back what i found.

I remember needing to refresh the page in the browser. I don't know what class of page modifications require to do that and why D servers seem to be more prone to it. I know that there is the "last-modified" HTML meta header. Perhaps that's the answer? Is it? Ali

Please report such bugs here: https://github.com/dlang-tour/core I actually never heard of anyone receiving a blank page, so the more information you report on an issue, the better. Thanks!
