Hi every one - off topic again ... but I purposefully left this without a title so it will not be saved in the archives.

Is anyone else having issues getting into the HP Lexicon online? It was up yesterday morning, but by afternoon it was switching over to a different page like the guy shut it down.

Just wondering.

yes its been giving me trouble as well if i try to google something and go to the link. but if i go to the main site i can get in. it looks all wierd but the topics are still listed and if you click one it takes you to the right place and everything looks normal. hhmmm

wow, I can't even get that much - it takes me to one of those search pages where they list a bunch of unrelated stuff.

Make sure that you aren't typing in the web address as .com. I've gotten an unrelated search page when I've accidentally used .com instead of .org.

Ginger Gargoyle said...

no I'm using the .org ... in fact the address I'm using is http://www.hp-lexicon.info/index-2.html
which should take me right inside the lexicon itself, but now it doesn't

you know - with the site down, now would be the perfect time for a quiz! everyone would have to look in their books.

there's always the online canon http://www.marysia.com/hpcanon/

and wikipedia's article on harry potter fandom has lots of links too
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Potter_fandom

but I know what you mean -- its like a comfy blanket.
Hope it gets fixed soon.
