Topic: "add to watchlist" button doesn't work?!

The home page and individual show page load slower than usual.
The login, comments, search, add to/remove from watchlist buttons do not respond to my clicks.
And the search function doesn't work either. This is the response for my search of "watchmen":

"Sorry, the page you're looking for cannot be found!

You may have typed a wrong url, or it may've been linked badly or moved.

Please use the search above or start from our home page. "

While other things work normally.
I don't know what's going on. Is this the site problems or my browser (firefox) problems??

Re: "add to watchlist" button doesn't work?!

Are you using any extensions that might be blocking parts of the site?  uBlock, NoScript, etc

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

I have adblock and pop-up block, but they haven't been problems before. I tried disable them but it doesn't solve anything.
I noticed these problems since yesterday when I wanted to add shows to my watchlist.
The site worked smoothly before that. Even now, other functions work normally.

Re: "add to watchlist" button doesn't work?!

Please try with a different browser.

Re: "add to watchlist" button doesn't work?!

It has the same problems when I tried with Chrome.

Re: "add to watchlist" button doesn't work?!

Weird.

Did you recently install new anti-virus software?

Are you running a VPN?

Did you restart your PC?

Re: "add to watchlist" button doesn't work?!

No
No
And what did you mean by restart. My laptop is old so once in a while it glitches or freezes, so I have to press the power button to shut it down, after that it works normally again. Other than that I shut down and turn on my laptop the usual way.
If this isn't the site problems, then I may wait a little bit to see how it goes. It may solves itself out hopefully =.=.

I meant "Did you restart your PC since the problem started?" - sometimes issues go away after a reboot. smile

Yeah... I don't have any other ideas at the moment. Good luck!

Can you please record a video of this behavior? You can do it with a screen recording app or just directly with your phone.

You can send it to info[at]next-episode.net

This will help tremendously with figuring out what may be going on here ..

Also, can you try:

1) go to firefox extensions and disable all of them
2) restart the browser
3) retry browsing around on Next Episode.

And finally - do you only have issues with Next Episode or is weird stuff happening on other websites as well?

Let me know

Re: "add to watchlist" button doesn't work?!

And......
The problems are fixed!!!

I didn't do ANYTHING. I just opened to site to check and the problems are gone.

It's a MIRACLE.

or actually someone fixed something.
Anyway, thank you very much.

I did in fact do something - I rerouted the CDN traffic from Asia to the EU/US servers (basically where some of the static content like images and javascript files are being delivered from) in case our CDN provider had issues affecting your region.

As yours wasn't the first report regarding this issue (I had one more at the support email) and both originated from the same continent - I had a suspicion and wanted to test it out.

It's very likely this was the issue and I'll leave the CDN configuration as it is for the foreseeable future.

Cheers!

@santah
Cool
Although I don't understand much of that.
Thank you so much.
