I once went there I think. Not sure how I got there. I did not log in but noticed most of the posts were not there.

No problems. It is simply the Daz Site. not quite sure why you got that address to access it, seems to be something that has been left behind from the Beta site.

From the url structure it appears to be a subdomain of daz3d’s.  Maybe they’re going to start offering a web magazine, or were thinking of it at one time.

Right. The key part is whatever goes immediately before the .com (or .org, or .co.uk, or what have you). so example.daz3d.com should be fine; daz3d.example.com or example-daz3d.com might not be (could be a phishing site or something else you want to steer clear of).

As I said, this one is linked somehow to the Beta Site. Nothing more and nothing less than that.

Google loves it, if you search for anything that is included there, it tends to prefer the “ca1-magweb” links to more recent ones.

I get a blank page when I click on the link… What are you people hiding from me… hmm?

To make matters worse, my office chair just broke when I typed that last “hmm”.... Luckily my catlike reflexes prevented me from falling into the pit in back of me (I really have to put a board over that or something).

I smell a conspiracy….


Nope… thats just an old cheese wheel that rolled into the pit…. I really gotta cover that up.

I’d guess that the ‘mag’ in ‘magweb’ refers to Magento, which is the e-commerce engine that the new store/site runs on.

‘ca1-magweb.daz3d.com’ is probably the name of an individual machine in the cluster of machines that serves the DAZ site (or perhaps a development machine). Apparently there’s an error in a configuration file somewhere, or a hard-coded reference to a specific machine in their code.

You know, looking at the thread title reminded me that based on current scientific theories, that statistically there are probably thousands of alternate universes where the new DAZ site actually works well AND looks good… unfortunately in at least 15,699 of them we are all giant, hat wearing cockroaches.

You’re not a giant hat-wearing cockroach?

Damn it, I’m in the wrong reality again. I knew that I should have stopped and asked directions at the last fold in the space-time continuum.

On the plus side, if I can just find my way back to my home universe, I’ve got a great shopping experience ahead of me.

I had a comment but remembered that I really just should not go there.
