Opera Developer 30: can't browse the plug‑in documentation

  • Hi there!

    First of all, it's a great pleasure to see Opera back in the 32 bits UNIX* world.

    I just installed Opera Blink onto Ubuntu 32 bits (and removed Chrome in the while). As there are things I miss from the good old Opera Presto, I wanted to see if I can create my own plug-in for that purpose, and started to browse the plug-in developer documentation.

    Surprisingly, Opera 30 can't browse this documentation, while I checked Firefox has no issue with it.

    I mean, this page: dev.opera.com/addons/extensions/tut_getting_started.html

    I may click any link in menu on the right pan, it invariably stick to the page which says “Welcome! This is our documentation section explaining how to build extensions for the Chromium-based Opera browser for computers. […]”.

    Trying to browse it with Firefox, I noticed Firefox is redirected to this page: dev.opera.com/extensions/tut_getting_started.html . There is a slight difference in the URL and in the pages layout, but this is browsable.

    Is this an issue with Opera Developer or an issue with the site?

  • Hi!

    First, it's not sure that the 32 bit-version will remain and become stable, as the Opera team in Oslo has been shut down, and now the browser is being developed in Poland, but I hope they will continue support it.

    So, regarding the extension page problem; I have the exact same problem that you have. And it was totally random for me, sometimes it worked, and sometimes it looked exactly as it does on the image you provided. But now I think I know what's causing this:

    http://dev.opera.com/addons/extensions is broken

    http://dev.opera.com/extensions works fine (without "addons/" in the url)

    For me it is like this: When you use the first link (that leads to the broken site), you must use Opera developer or beta. If you use Opera stable, firefox, chrome etc, it will just direct to the working (http://dev.opera.com/extensions) site.

    Can someone confirm this?
