OK, there seems to be an issue in the opening URL.

Use https://nikongear.net/revival/index.php instead of just .../revival/ and you are in.

Why this problem suddenly cropped up? no idea. Will have a look at the code tomorrow to see what I can ferret out.

I tried it on an Android phone and tablet both, and neither would open, including with the full "Index.php" added.  But, oddly enough, when I tried on the tablet to open one of the forum pages by full URL, it did work, but gave a blank page when I went to the home page.  I was not logged in then, so I then logged in, and the home page opened fine.   It's a little odd for sure.  My laptop (Win 10, Firefox) has had no problem, but I'm permanently logged in on that one.  I'll check Ubuntu later.

e.t.a. definitely a little odd.  I tried it on another machine, on which I was also logged in, and as soon as I logged out, the home page went blank, with no option to log back in.  So I returned to this laptop, where this message appeared, with a little note saying "logged," but no option to edit or reply until I logged in again.

Glad it's not just me then.
Here is what I see after looking up a different topic on Google Chrome.

I have no problem with the website, neither the homepage nor any other. I am using Chrome. Just for info.
Haven't tried on my mobile with Android though.

I am in Firefox on my Android mobile and the site does not load.

With the desktop there are no problems.

One has to search for an existing post on the site with for instance google and then it will load that very page on the NG website. Thats how i get in now.

For now, while we search for the bug, add the following to the URL if you see the blank page

Old URL:  https://nikongear.net/revival/

Adjusted URL: https://nikongear.net/revival/index.php?topic=x000, where x={1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9} (you might get a warning the topic doesn't exist, but be able to enter the ordinary pages nonethless)

An alternative, use index.php?action=login

So you didn't mount a ND-Filter on the startpage ;D ;D ;D

If you do see the problem, at least now you have learnt how to deal with it ....

Me neither... ! But I usually only access NG on the iMac.

In the last few days, I have seen the issue on Android, Linux, and Windows, using a number of different browsers. No reason to believe a Mac would make this exempt.

I have done a few measures of forum softrware maintenance and for now, the "blank page" bug seems to have retired itself. Will be on the outlook for any reemergenvce, however.
