    Again, it dies on that unfinished script tag (XPath in Google Chrome Developer Tools: //*[@id="brandHeader"]/div/div[2] ) :

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, script tag starts, but never ends - then follows the noscript tag and the top navigation bar. But because the script tag never ends, all that content is considered as a script tag content, thus correctly not rendered by web browser. I am looking at the source code, the part above is clearly generated by some script as it is not visible directly in the source code, but the issue is visible in picture above.

    Edit: I think it's the doubleclick code which generates invalid HTML :
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
    	//<![CDATA[
    	segQS = (typeof(window['segQS']) != "undefined") ? segQS : '';
        document.write('<scr' + 'ipt type="text/javascript" src="http://ad.uk.doubleclick.net/N359/adj/bit-tech.net/homepage;category=homepage;ord=1988148486;live=yes;type=index;sz=468x60,728x90;tile=1;position=1;dcopt=ist;' + segQS + '?"><\/scr' + 'ipt>');
        //]]>
    </script>
    The script downloaded from that site ends with :
    Code:
    position:absolute;top:0px;right:0px;width:1px;height:1px;visibility:hidden;border:none;\x22\x3e\x3cscript type\x3d\x22text/javascript\x22\x3e\n');document.write('');
    If we translate the hex codes to characters, we end up with :
    Code:
    position:absolute;top:0px;right:0px;width:1px;height:1px;visibility:hidden;border:none;"><script type="text/javascript">\n');document.write('');
    Which generates a code ending in opened script tag, which is not closed inside the Doubleclick javascript.

    it's gone back to being baulked (chrome), but was fine over the weekend while at home (firefox). it's like it knows how depressed i am at being in work on monday morning, so tires to lessen the distraction and encourage me to get back into work. I hate having a proper job again.

    Yep, broken for me in IE too.

    I managed to go directly to the forums, through browser history, but bit's front page isn't loading.

    Frontpage won't load properly without adblock, it's as if they're trying to tell us something...

    I too have been experiencing this on and off for a few days - noticed the same thing as faugusztin when hitting F12 (Chrome Devleoper Tools). So now cannot browse the site without AdBlock enabled.

    It looks like there isn't much you can do to validate the generated HTML as doubleclick is serving it up and writing it to the page using document.write. I wonder if putting the adverts in their own iframe would manage to "catch" the problem inside the frame and not impact the rest of the page. This might not work and I have never actually tried it :hehe:

    Dead for me too in Chrome, I have Adblock but Bit-Tech is the one site which I let all the adverts load! Seems like I should have blocked them! :)

    I know nothing about webpage coding, but is there any reason why the ads are loaded before the content? I can recall a few times I couldn't get the page because an ad server was bonked, and it kept everything from loading.

    So if things break at least they got an ad in front of our eyes. Or am I being too cynical?

    :grr:
