      The landing page link currently has “action=edit”, so it’s forbidden for most of us.

          It still redirects to https://www.askwoody.com/wp-admin/edit.php:

      I’m no longer able to access the WSL forums at all. NO redirection just a browser message saying there may be issues or it moved to a new address.

          that’s not the way I read that thread but OK. I can’t even access the admin control panel. Only the front page of windowssecrets.com and the links to everything but the Lounge still work.

            I’m getting

            Content Encoding Error

            The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.

            Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

            Not even the “we’re moving” notice.

            Looks like WSL just blew up. I have a note in to the Penton devs.

              I see the “Content Encoding Error” too. Bet they botched the redirect.

      I thought that Windows Secrets subscribers were going to be brought over as “Plus” members; didn’t happen for me (at least as far as the badge is concerned – I’m getting the newsletter).
