Hi everyone, For the first time in a while, I just tried both methods to get into Flight Tracker using both the 'my map" on my profile and the forum drop down from Member Benefits and Services. In both cases, it says:
This site can’t be reached
openflights.australianfrequentflyer.com.au’s server IP address could not be found.

I am overseas, so switched on my VPN and put it to Australia - same error. Is there something wrong with the link or am I doing something wrong?
Any assistance, gratefully received🙏🙏

How are you trying to access your data? Talk me through where you click to load the page and the URL.

Thanks Support, as I started replicating the method I realised that Adblocker was causing the map to not load. I've now allowed that and its fine. Sorry for the post!
You little beauty! You've just helped fixed mine, which has been broken for months. It's odd as my ad blocker shows nothing being blocked, but as soon as I turned it off and reloaded.... voila! Thanks very much.

FYI @support I had cleared all cookies, cached files, history etc. which had fixed it in the past and it still wouldn't work. The only fix was disabling the ad blocker just now on the site, so that must have only started happening in the last few months or so that it was detecting 'something' as an ad.

As a workaround I had just been using another browser, but glad to have it working in my primary one now.

Also, strangely .... I no longer have to use the work around to allow all scripts etc. to run for the TripIt import to work. That now seems to be working out of the box, in Chrome anyway. When I was using Edge (the new Chromium version) I still had to do it, as recently as 2 or so weeks ago.

Just goes to show, ad-blockers can have unintended consequences.
