      Description

      In trying to access the Themes forum just now I am getting a website unavailable message.
      As this is not a website notice I am familiar with...it has no Moodle mentioned on it, just CloudFlare Protection, I wondered if this is, SPAM, a BUG or a real problem with the Moodle.org server?

      See uploaded image.

          Hi Mary,

          Apologies for moodle.org being unavailable, however if it's any consolation it's not just you!

          No doubt our system admin Jordan is doing all he can to get moodle.org back up.

          CloudFlare is some stuff that has been applied to the Moodle Community sites to make them run better, however there have been several reports of people obtaining the website unavailable message - see MDLSITE-1714.

          I agree with you that the message should mention Moodle.

          Hi, Just feeding in that I was also unable to get onto Moodle.org at the same time, with the same message (it is back now) but that I was still getting posts through to my email, so it would appear that some people had been able to access the forums at the same time - Is there a capacity limit for cloudflare that could have caused this issue?

          I asked about the possibility of the website unavailable message mentioning Moodle and was told that unfortunately it's not possible.

          Closing this issue as a duplicate for us to focus on MDLSITE-1714.
