EWTN is apparently in the process of a big website overhaul. I understand the site was a bit of a hodgepodge, and I presume they are going for a cleaner and easier-to-read look for the pages they choose to keep, but it appears that many of the prayer pages, a number of LIbrary selections, and some of the “Greatest Hits” responses to questions that we have relied on here (such as the one about Adoration via electronic means) have vanished into the ether.
I had about 25 EWTN pages with prayers and reading material bookmarked on my phone, most of which now come up as 404 Not Found and the remaining ones come up with an ugly page without the pictures and such which I previously enjoyed. Fortunately, the Internet Archive had everything stored, but it still took me about an hour this morning to redirect all of my EWTN prayer and devotional bookmarks.
I won’t be hitting EWTN site regularly for any of these resources any more, just going straight to the Archive page, so presumably they won’t miss my hits.
Anybody else having an issue with this?
I will be sending a big donation to the Internet Archive today because I would really miss a lot of those prayer pages, including the pictures which I had become used to seeing with the prayers.
