Anybody else having Wiki troubles?

You have killed it. :slight_smile:

Another little problemet for DH.


Opinions are my own views, not DreamHosts’.
I am NOT a DreamHost employee OK!! :@

You act on my advice at your own risk!

I sent them a note to let them know - couldn’t find anyone posted here about it at the time. Anyway, I got a pretty quick response.

"Thanks for the report! We are aware of this problem and working towards a resolution. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you. If you have any additional questions, please let us know. "

So, for anyone else stumbling across this, no need to bug them, they are aware of the problem. Figured I’d pass that along.

It’s back up now :slight_smile:
