PCAUTO site issues

How many of you are getting incorrect rendering of the site https://price.pcauto.com.cn/ or https://price.pcauto.com.cn/cars/pic.html?

Instead of the usual smart look of the site, I am getting a plain-text rendering and pictures, except one or two, are not generally visible. This has been going on for about two weeks or so. Erik too has been having problems with this site, as he reported to me.

Autohome has disabled the "latest updates" feature on their main gallery page:
https://car.autohome.com.cn/pic/

If this is not restored, one has no option but to sift through the entire gallery to find out which set of car pictures (could be new model, new variant or facelift) they have uploaded recently. Consequently, I fear this forum will not be updated as frequently as before since most of our picture updates were from Autohome. Of course there are other websites, but their gallery updates are not as timely or extensive as those of Autohome had been (even there, some have "latest updates" enabled, some don't).

@dmitra, a suggestion would be to use 'site:car.autohome.com.cn' with no quotes in Google search box and then set the search to only show results from the last 24 hours or Past Week (some take time for indexing) or you could use Google Advanced Search to do the same thing: https://www.google.com/advanced_search. Aside from main Web search, the Images tab shows updates too.

Thanks, @kegare, what you have suggested is the first thing I tried instinctively, and the results were less than satisfactory.

Another way is to proceed from the articles in the "News", "Drive" and 'Advice" sections of the main site, which are obviously updated regularly (Clicking "Real Shot" on the blue ribbon/bar above the relevant article will take me to the gallery) but the (minor) drawback is I won't necessarily see every new variant, only when there are major updates to a model line, i.e. a facelift or a yearly update, or a completely new model.

The gallery on PC Auto (https://price.pcauto.com.cn/cars/pic.html) is my next best option. Otherwise XCar or Auto Sohu.
