For me openems.de still does not work. It ends up on an empty page at http://openems.de/index.php/ .

I also tried from my pc at work, with my smartphone, with lynx text browser, ...

I strongly suspect, this actually is a server-side issue and no client-side permanent redirect problem...

Greetings,
Michael

Well it works for me on every device I can try and every location I am.

What about
http://openems.de
or
http://openems.de/start/index.php?show=home

the forum obviously seems to work...

Yes, forum works and direct link provided above also works. That's what I've been using the past months ...

It wasn't until recently at work when I wanted to navigate to openems.de via google and ended up on that blank screen again.

Funny ... it worked with my wifes (ie, win 10) notebook though.

I also tried it with browserling.com and there again ... Only blank screens.

I am totally confused and I have no clue what's going wrong. I just hate the thought of people interested in openEMS just seeing a blank screen. It is such a great piece of software that this would be such a pitty!

Thanks, Michael

Update: You can try 100+ browsers on browsershots.org. Firefoxes seem to work just fine. Safari and Chromes show blank screens.

Update 2: From what I've seen from redirect-checker.org there is a 301 pointing to openems.de/index.php/. Putting that url into Firefox somwhow ends up on openems.de/start, Chrome on the other hand remains on the blank index.php. Pointing Chrome directly to openems.de/start does work ok.

The link that turns up in Google and presentations about openEMS has never worked for me (http://openems.de/index.php/) -- it is a blank page in Chrome, MS Explorer, and MS Edge (basically, every web browser you'd find on a Windows machine) and has been for years. Maybe it's because I'm in Canada, I don't know.

This link works, but it's like a secret address you have to get from someone in the know:

http://openems.de/start/
