For those having trouble with the link, can you let us know what browser (and version of) you're looking at it through, and whether this through your computer or through a mobile device? We'll try and get it sorted for you as quickly as possible. Thanks!

Doesn't work in IE (work forces me to use it) or on Android. haaalp.

IE throws object expected errors at lines 44 and 180, android browser just dispays background info and a sharing form.

If you are having trouble getting through on mobile, please click on “Full Site” at the bootom of the Tor.com home page.

(While we sort out the mobile registration.)

Same as all of the above, except that I am using Google Chrome, and Windows 7. It loads the page from the link, but no chapter at all.

On Firefox 15 (PC), IE 8 (PC), and the Android browser (phone), I get directed to a login/signup page (even when I'm already logged in), and when I log in again, there's a 404 error.

Internet Explorer 9 on a desktop -- All I get is the title "A Memory of Light, Chapter One: 'Eastward the Wind Blew' and the Tor bits around where the text of the story should be.

Lets me log in but reports missing article. One chrome login showed a blank page with no content. Also got 'invalid token' but probably only when I was giving bad login info.

IE7 on VISTA didn't work.
Dolphin set to act like a Desktop on my droid (ICS) didn't work.
ICS Droid's Built-in browser set to act as a mobile device did not work.

Still no dice on mobile with full site - same issue as in IE. And some of my comments are disappearing.

Alright, so theory time, which forsaken balefired the post? Imma gonna go with Moghedien. Seems like something she would do.

Chrome, IE, and Firefox all act the same.

If you aren't logged in when you click the link, logging in tries to redirect you here: http://www.tor.com/stories/2012/09/a-memory-of-light-chapter-1-qeastward-the-wind-blewq

This gives the 404 page.

If you're already logged in when you click the link, you are directed here upon clicking the link: http://www.tor.com/AMoL-Chapter1

But it displays only the subject headline and no content.

I think it is more likely stuck behind a dreamspike. We must walk into teh Flatiron building to be able to read it. (anyone remember the old April Fools day joke on Tör.cöm day about the reading stations in the basement?)

Google Chrome 21.0.1180.89m, no good - Tor page loads fine, but where the chapter would be is a blank white abyss. No hint of a redirect or anything in page source or anything, either.

Title and blank white space on iPad. Can't fins a "full site" link. Then it goes to the 404 page.

I have experienced the exact same problem as KalvinKinglsey (post #29). It acts the same irrespective of whether you use Explorer, Firefox or Chrome. My OS is Windows 7.

Switched to Firefox 15 on Win 7 and get the same as @42 fishrgreat. My credentials don't appear to work (even though I'm already logged in on Tor.com)

I think Irene and her team are going to need a good cup of fortified coffee after this gets sorted out :)

Good luck, web folks!

"Read..." link now leads straight to 404 page on Firefox 15.

Went from getting a title and blank space to a 404 message. (IE9 on a desktop, Windows 7).

IE gives me a 404 not found and Chrome asks for username and password (mine does not work).

Clearly the Dark One is getting stronger.

Hey folks, we did some tinkering. Try the link in the post again and let us know.

I don't understand whats happening to the server. Sometimes it's giving me a 404 error and some times its giving me a gray log in box that rejects my user name and password. ... I think the .php files might be corrupt either that or they began advertising this before the page was ready and the servers were slammed so hard that they can't get it working.

Hey Guys, I got it to work. If you are already a registered member, make sure and log in before clicking on the link. It seems that the problem is only if you need to register or if you try to register on the link page.

So, Log in on the upper right corner of this page, then click through the link.

Edit: Or it may just be fixed now and I'm a bit of a dodo...
