Considering that a number of people, including myself, have had trouble accessing WordPress.com blogs off late, I have setup an anonymous WordPress proxy to alleviate the suffering of those restricted by such repressive and redundant policies.
It is still in beta and I would like to get as much feedback as possible so that any missing features or bugs can be handled. All you have to do is go to http://www.wordpressproxy.com and enter the name of the blog you would like to view. Currently, it can only be used to open WordPress.com blogs and is restricted to the wordpress.com domain (I wouldn’t want it to become so popular that it is rendered unusable due to the load), but I’ll expand it depending on the traffic and feedback I get. I can also consider setting up another blogspot proxy (and maybe even a full anonymous proxy), when this is successful.
Great going Sajjad! Let me know of the feedback you receive and I’ll update the DONT BLOCK THE BLOG campaign page with your proposed solution as well.
Good Sajjad it is a timely act who knows what might happen tomorrow.
Great idea – I think its a good initiative but is it actually blocked in Pakistan or is there something else cropping up. I am able to browse to WordPress both via Cyber net and Max Com without a problem it might be good to get trace routes to figure out whats up
PS seems like Omer and I gravitate to the same issue together LOL
Teeth Maestro, though the main page opens up fine, I am unable to open any WordPress blog using Dancom’s network. I had this troubleshooted a while back and the problem was found to be with the local network and was fixed. Seems that this time, it is most likely blocked at PIE. Anyway, better to be prepared.
I have write you a comment in the mobile categorie!! this one is to increase the probabilty to contact you!!
I am looking forward to hearing from you!!
