Can't access server from Fandom (the Wiki)

I wonder if this could be fixed with a text replacer that mods the Wiki's "external link" class, since, at a glance, that seems to be the problem.

Firefox has FoxReplace that can do site specific text modding, but never used it much...

Firefox can also do personal css, I think?

This is intriguing. I didn't know that it had an "external link" class that could be changed on a per-wiki basis. Tell me more.

And, as seen when you view-source a valid page, it's actually "external text"... Whoops.

FoxReplace ( Code: Github ) gets me most of the way there, I just need to make it replace my actual HTML tags, instead of just bare text...

Adding "crystalhall.wikia.com" makes it work on all of the Wiki, I just can't get it to change the tags, specifically... I could fork it and tweak, but have no add-on coding experience.

I don't know why you need to change the tags. The href= contains the URL. It appears that Fandom is simply deleting the "http:" part and leaving "//whateleyacademy.net/...." Then the browser takes its default when it doesn't see a scheme (which appears to be "https:") and away we go to "server not found".

So replacing "//whateleyacademy.net" with " whateleyacademy.net " ought to work.

Since I'm on Safari, I have to find a plugin that will do it for me; firefox plugins probably won't work well. Sigh.

It looks like Fandom backed the change out. I'm able to get to whateleyacademy.net from Fandom, and the page source looks like it's got the usual http:// prefix.

OOPS - I may have been hasty. I can't get to Muse-Of-Krews, and the page source looks like the same. What might have happened is that I've been going over the same 15 pages, so the browser might have gotten them from the cache.

I had some hopes....

Well, it's been working perfectly for the last couple of weeks, so I guess they did back the change out. This ticket can be closed.
