For the past month or so I have been unable to link on to Magicpedia, and only get error messages. Is the site down? Is it a permanent problem? If so, a great resource is lost to us.

I just now entered "magicpedia" on google, second item on the results page was "Magicpedia - Genii", I clicked on that & was taken to the magicpedia "Main Page".

Just to make sure everything was working I clicked at random on one of the links on the main page (some guy called "Richard Kaufman") and the link worked fine.

PS - I even more just now checked again & "Magicpedia - Genii" is now the first result.

Holey Moley! You are right. Yet when I go up to the top of this page and click on the black and white "Magicpedia" button, I get an error message:

Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/home/geniimag/public_html/magicpedia/includes/profiler/ProfilerFunctions.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/geniimag/public_html/wiki/includes/WebStart.php on line 80

It would be nice to get that fixed.

Are you unable to change the links on the buttons?

I am unable to do anything! I have people I pay to do this stuff and they're working on it (along with many other things).

It takes two seconds to cut and paste a new link to replace an old one. I know because I do it all the time on my own Web site. I hope you're not paying them too much for such a simple task.

The problem is greater than that.

The "greater problem" is made up of "smaller problems" each of which can be fixed one by one. Don't put off fixing the little problems to fix the "greater problem."
