It is not working on me home computer. But it is fine on the computers in my office. I am pretty sure something is wrong with the site. Please fix it!!!!!
Site is broken. Fix it!!!
Now, I don't understand VPN's and all that, so what I am saying may be all garbled technically, but when one uses Hideman, one's internet access is routed through a different server that might even be in a different country. So if the ahk site is hosted on different servers for different areas, when one uses Hideman one may be accessing it on or through a different server than when one isn't using Hideman. Hence the ahk website may be corrupted on one of its hosts, but not on the others.
In any case, where you are geographically seems to matter, as Hideman operates by making it seem as if you are somewhere else. And this explains why some people have the problem in accessing the ahk forum, and not others.
I presume what I am describing is using a different internet proxy. So RHCP's idea of checking what happens with a different internet proxy turns out to be right. Thanks, RHCP, for raising the issue of proxy, and dmg, for describing the issue, so I knew that the issue wasn't just on my system, and for mentioning geographical location.

Edit1: I have now tried it with Hideman on Windows, and so far it works for me. &nbsp;Well, actually, I find the response of the forum to commands bumpy or jerky, rather than smooth, but on the other hand, and this is strange, the forum site looks better than I remember it looking before the problems started. Well, now to try some unlimited free proxy...
Edit2: Well, this is getting confusing.
I had tried Hideman with Opera, and the ahk forum worked. But what's odd is that so far it's continued working, even after Hideman is disconnected. But IE and Firefox, which I didn't use while Hideman was connected, won't display the ahk forum right. Well, I'm curious if the forum will continue to display properly in Opera tomorrow. (I don't think the point is Opera per se, but simply that it was the browser I was using when I tried Hideman.)
I tried hidemyass.com. Whether it works with ahk depends on which server, in "Advanced options", is selected. "Random" might not work; "Chicago1" I think it was, won't work; but Amsterdam will work for me. That much isn't surprising. But what is odd, is that I can't stay signed in while accessing the ahk forum with hidemyass. I can sign in, but as soon as I do anything else in the forum, I'm automatically signed out, and have to sign in again. This didn't happen with Hideman.&nbsp;
Edit3: When using hidemyass.com, one can avoid the problem with sign-ins that I mention above, by using Advanced Options and not only selecting a Server which is not Chicago, but also selecting something other than "Random" in "IP address."
Now, all of those files are also accessible through www.autohotkey.com. So I wrote a Greasemonkey script that replaces all instances of "\\cdn.autohotkey.com\" with "\\www.autohotkey.com\". (Forward slashes replaced with backslashes to keep the script from defacing this post.) Here it is: http://userscripts.o...pts/show/178276
You'll need to install the Greasemonkey extension (or a compatible one, like Tampermonkey) and then install my script. It's almost 2am here and my AC is broken, so I hope you'll forgive me if I don't go into more detail than that. If you're smart enough to figure out AutoHotkey, you shouldn't have any problems.
Ultimately, though, we need a site admin to either fix the DNS (?) problem, or else change all cdn references to www.
UPDATE: It seems that some things are not fixed by the simple domain change. A few icons are missing, spoiler tags don't expand correctly, and at least one user is unable to post replies, although I don't experience that last problem on Chrome. It's still better than nothing. I will look into these issues when I have time.
Kudos to Phasma Felis for analyzing the problem and posting the Greasemonkey script!
On my system, there seems to be one minor quirk in how Firefox and that script handle the autohotkey forum. It doesn't seem to allow me to write a reply. To write this reply, I had to disable the script. But so far it seems that after the forum manifests correctly because of the script, it continues to manifest correctly after being disabled until one leaves the forum.
edit: spoke too soon again. Broken again, no matter what.
With this fix the Spoiler sections will not expand. But yeh to be able to see for forums in their correct format and be able to login and post.
Really hope this gets a permanent fix soon.
Thanks again Drainx.
