Do they share the same filtering policy?
I've seen sites work at www.blah.com but not img.blah.com which broke the images.
This is a bit of a weird one but one that has me stumped. Maths use a site, mymaths.co.uk. Everything looks fine until students login. When they log in the buttons at the top of the webpage do not display properly, you can drag your mouse over where they should be and know they are there but you cant actually see them. This is in contrast to a teacher login where the page displays properly with no problem.
Both use the same site login and Ive tried this on the same machine so its definitely not a java or machine software issue as it will as it will work fine when i log on as a teacher but not as a student logon.
Can anyone suggest anything i should be trying in order to get to the bottom of this as its driving me crazy and the maths teacher is demanding it works for the start of term on thursday and i dont really want to have to mess about making a MyMaths windows logon which is basically just a cut down teacher logon just so students can use this website.
I've seen this occur when one of our local filtering reg ex's (for completely another website/purpose) has gone and interfered with mymaths. I'd be inclined to think filtering...
Even an explicit 'whitelist' didn't work, but explicit whitelisting should be your first step. Then try disabling lists one by one to see whether it identities any issues with an entry on a certain list.
Not sure if this helps but I've been investigating why the my maths web site does not load properly and after much head scratching and investigation I found that embedded in the flash stream were very naughty words which of course was being filtered [ correctly ] by our proxy server.
I have sent the logs over to the people at my maths with my findings but have not had a responce. If I do, I'll let you know - of course your problem may be sorted now - mine is now I have found out why.....
It does like rogue code because when we take it out of our white list it's blocked.
I'm really want to know why the words are in the flash stream - there surly has to be an explanation !!
Back in the days when I was a visual basic programmer I used to copy whole reams of stuff into the code out of boredom - never anything naughty - usually either song lyrics or once, the complete works of Shakespeare
If it helps (which it wont!) we have gone back to Flash 9 - flash 10.Whatever causes us loads of problems and this site being one of them.
Many years ago I used to find it amusing at finding messages in boot sector viruses when clearing them down in a hex editor.....The writers used to basically send messages to each other but most of the time it was a case of swearing insults.....
That's when it was clever to knock up a virus - now anyone can do it.
Funny you should say that I had to go round all our mymaths PCs and upgrade the flash to the latest version to get it to work. We were on flash9
Still no reply from MyMaths regarding my E-mail asking them why rude words were embedded within the flash content - is it worth chasing up ?
