Codex links not available in China (9 posts)

    I have tried reaching al the http://codex.wordpress.... links from both Shanghai and Beijing in the last month and none are accessible. The rest of the website is fine, but not the codex links.

    Now, I know that many of you outside of China are going to say "It's China's fault for blocking", but I really really doubt this and think instead it's just a DNS issue somewhere either on the WordPress side or somewhere between WordPress and China.

    I was hoping maybe WP can provide an alternative URL to access the codex area. I am currently using a very slow proxy to access it...

    tks!

    Great! This is a good starting point, but some pages have not been updated in a while for WP2.0. Maybe WordPress folks can make another web alias to point to the codex and then have that available...

    Ah.... this is entirely a volunteer effort, I understand. You'd probably better be happy there's anything.... I don't know what the "wordpress folks" have in mind as to mirrors etc. Perhaps nothing.

    No problem. ;-) I greatly appreciate the volunteers and quick assistance.

    Although I understand the remark that the user should be happy with anything I think it might be worth for the wordpress team to consider having a mirror.

    The codex is indeed blocked. It may be a dns problem or it maybe is because of the fact that the sub domain "codex" is blocked for whatever trivial reason.

    The fact is that there are a lot of Chinese users of WordPress and giving that a small relative number here is a big absolute number WordPress can also benefit from the input from the users.

    Just my 2 fen.

    That makes 4 fen. ;)

    Yes, it would be great to see a mirror, somewhere...

  9. If it were simply a DNS issue, defining codex.wordpress.org as 68.142.234.44 would fix the problem and I doubt that'd fix it.

    China is just retarded and blocks it. Time to move! :)
