Weird glitch: When I click on "show" a hidden post, I get "Not Found" [SOLVED]

Last edited Mon Feb 11, 2013, 08:24 PM - Edit history (1)

The hidden post is here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/1240220228#post8

And when I click on "show" I get this page open up...







Any ideas why this might be happening?

1. Looks like your javascript is off. ( n/t )

2. OK, weird if it is because I didn't do it

Any idea what might have switched it off? And how do I switch it back on?

Thanks for the feedback.

3. To the right of the address bar there should be a icon with three horizontal lines.

When you mouse over it the text 'Customize and control Google Chrome' should appear. Click on that and choose 'Settings' from the menu. (If that isn't how it looks or you don't have those options, you can just type chrome://settings in the address bar and hit enter.)

Scroll to the bottom of the resulting page and click the 'Show advanced settings...' link. The new sections listed should contain a Privacy heading, under that there should be a 'Content settings...' button. Hit that and a dialog box should popup that has a Javascript heading a few items down. If it's not on, turn it on. If it appears to be on, click the 'Manage exceptions...' button and if DU is listed as blocked then remove it.

Close all the dialog boxes and navigate to DU and try some stuff that requires javascript. Your hidden post link probably being the easiest to find and test.

4. Right, I did all that and "Allow all sites to run JavaScript" was already checked

And DU isn't listed as blocked in the "Manage exceptions" box. So, it doesn't seem to be Chrome, any idea what else it might be?

Thanks again.

5. It seems to have solved itself

I just closed all the open tabs and restarted Chrome which seems to have fixed it. I have a theory that it might have been something to do with opening a bunch of saved tabs with Session Buddy earlier and the links had gone stale, or something.

Thanks again for your help.
