    Umbraco site broken?

    When I search for Umbraco stuff on Google and click for example on:!

    The site is giving a 404. Also when I go to I get a 404. What is going on?

    Also I have created a Contour license but am not able to download this and previous licenses. Also broken.

    Please fix.

    Hi, Martijn,

    I don't have any problem as long as there is no 'www' in the url. Your first url example works just fine for me.

    The second example with the www does give an error. Looks like the HQ will need to update their rewrite rules to auto-strip the www portion of inbound links. This might be helpful:

    As for the Contour license, you should be able to workaround the problem by removing any www from the download url. Or, contact the HQ directly for support.

    cheers, doug.

    Was an oversight in a server move - fixed.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for the heads up!

    Hi Doug, Niels,

    Thanks for helping out and fixing the problem. However the link to the Contour license still isn't working:

    Where X and Y are the ID and name of the license.

    Could it be that there are still more broken links? I tried the links on this page:

    The download links to the logo's are not working.

    Hi there, This is now a week old, I also have this problem, we are trying to buy contour for our clients site and can't as a result.

    Is there a contact number we can use for a 1:1 conversation to purchase instantly while we wait for a fix?

    @Steven Contour (now called Umbraco Forms) can be bought here:

    A license for Umbraco Forms is also valid for Contour.

    I have on Settings > Document Types > Site Page > Home > Generic Properties a property called Footer Navigation. It was set to type "Top Level Except Legal Prefetch" and it had links to a few pages of the site.

    I changed it from "Top Level Except Legal Prefetch" to "Related Links" and it broken the entire site.

    If I open the site (I'm running it locally) I see the "Looks like there's still work to do" page, as if there was no content published. But the content is there, I can see if I log into the CMS. The weird thing is that now on properties Header Navigation and Footer Navigation (inside Settings > Document Types > Site Page > Home > Generic Properties) there are no items listed.

    I've set Footer Navigation property type to "Top Level Except Legal Prefetch", tried republishing the site, reload nodes and nothing changed.
