First, most of the web page is completely broken when using HTTPS, because they're using the css.librarything.com and js.librarything.com domains to serve CSS and JavaScript (without which the site unfortunately doesn't work at all), and the certificate doesn't cover those domains.

Second, I can't submit a message to the Bug Collectors group via the HTTP site, because the JavaScript there is also broken:

Error: $("fp0") is null
Source File: http://js.librarything.com/minified/js/[...].js
Line: 823

Does someone know some way to alert the site admins now?

    I don't get it. I've seen many useful questions getting closed. But this sort of questions are being top new questions. This question should be closed because it's too localized. – user Feb 27 '12 at 17:15
  • Why is this too localized? This site is for questions about individual web apps, and I couldn't find anything in the FAQ arguing against it. Also, it could help anyone else if/when this happens again (HTTPS was broken for a long time once before). – l0b0 Feb 28 '12 at 7:49

I'm the sysadmin for LibraryThing and we had a problem with one of our rules in our SSL vhost.

Hopefully this should be fixed for you now. I'm very sorry this caused so much trouble.

  • Awesome, back to filing books :) – l0b0 Feb 25 '12 at 23:14

FWIW, we prefer to put issues on the Bug Collectors group: http://www.librarything.com/groups/bugcollectors

We welcome emails, but we'd probably post to there anyway, since it helps us track issues.

    That's the first thing I tried (via HTTP), but a JavaScript error prevented me from submitting (as pointed out above). – l0b0 Feb 26 '12 at 8:39
