Hi Kyle,
I am presently in discussion with Toronto Library staff about this issue.
please please please call them and tell them you are having trouble.
What I have shared is that since they are a service for the general public, the account aspects of the site should not require Java Script...could be a human rights code violation truth be told.
there is a back door in,
type the url like this.
When I just checked your link, I did not get a blank page, but the statement that JavaScript is required. Again library staff *must* be told of the problem so they at the very least add the old account link to the site homepage. Much as they had the old catalog link there for years. With your permission, may I share this post with the staff members I am communicating with presently?

I have a Lynx problem that you might be able to help with:

I have a customer who would like to view our website in the text-based Lynx
browser. At the very least, our website should display a message saying
that "We're sorry, you need to enable Javascript to view this" etc.
However, this page appears to show blank in Lynx. The interesting thing is
that I do see the correct content appearing when connecting to the
localhost version of the browser which makes me think this might be related
to a certificate or subdomain issue.

For reference, the website I am trying to access via Lynx is

I've posted a stackoverflow question
as well which has some screenshots that might show you more information.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.
