lichess.org

A friend when trying to use the website has an issue.

Instead of it being the lichess we know and love it seems to be just text! any solutions?

There has been a large amount of issues today. Centered around the blocking of lichess1.org. Some common traits are mcaffee blocking it. It could be a regional block also.

If you are using Mcafee lifesafe anti-virus then if you look at the "net guard" option under firewall settings, you will see a number of ip addresses that are being automatically blocked, if you click on them you can edit and unblock. In my case the offending ip address was 104.26.7.98 which seems to be a cloudflare ip address, responsible for serving up web content. This sorts the text only appearance issue for the lichess website. hope this works for you.

You can't post in the forums yet. Play some games!
