#12396 new defect

WEB: Buildbot web pages are blank when viewed on older systems.

Description

Since being upgraded, Buildbot’s web pages are rendered as blank pages on older systems (in my case, macOS 10.6.8). This also means that daily builds can’t be accessed on affected systems.

Obviously, this is an issue for systems supporting web browsers which can’t be updated. Having said that, these same browsers have no problems displaying , and interacting with, ScummVM’s new documentation pages (at least in my case).

The daily builds can still be downloaded from https://buildbot.scummvm.org/snapshots/ which works fine in w3m / wget / curl, so older systems can still access the builds. They just can't get the pretty page that goes with them, which I think is probably ok?

Thank you for the link. It does indeed give access to the daily builds. However, if this link is to be useful, it must be made available where it's easily accessible to users, which in my opinion, would satisfactorily resolve this issue.

The obvious choice is in the Daily Builds section of ScummVM's Downloads page - ideally immediately below the current link - including it as part of an appropriate message, for example, if unable to access the latest daily builds, please try this link.
