View Full Version : Bug with your website

July 21st, 2004, 11:42 PM
There seems to be a bug with your website. When I first come to the site and click on the Forums link it goes to the forums page and then immediately kicks me back to the main photopost page. Upon a second round of clicking it lets me into the forum. This only happens if I am logged into the forum with the "remember me" cookie.

Also once in the forum if I click on the User CP link it kicks me back to the Photopost homepage.

I've confirmed this problems in Both IE and FireFox.

I run both IE and Firefox and have never experienced this behavior. I will pass this on to Michael though.

WHen there is a file not found error, it kicks people to the main page. If you post the URLs, I'll try em.

I believe the affiliate link is suppose to take you to the main index page - is it not? At least that's how I understand it and have used it.

Indeed, but the bounce back happens after I click the link and visit your site..

So, you click the affiliate link and then the forums link and it kicks you back to the main index page?

Tried it from here with Mozilla with no problems - odd one indeed. Can you copy the link it trys to find before it kicks you back to the main index? (Copy shortcut).

I can follow JC's links no problem.

Same here - isn't that the oddest thing? The link is obviously valid so why would the server return an error code? Bizzare.

It is this code in your index page here

if ( $User['username'] == "JCS100" ) {

diewell("NO ACCESS");

Actually, it looks like:

if ( rand(0,100) < 30 ) {

Just to mess with people.

I hope you joking... this has been bugging me too (IE). :p

Ditto - it does it to me too - using Opera 7.5.2

When I go to the forums.. it kicks back to the home page... and now I know that I am quick to click the members area link! :)

Will keep an eye on it and try to see if I can duplicate it; did the 3.0.3 upgrade yesterday and have a little more work to do. As you can see, I've been making some updates to the area and hopefully something will help.

When I finish, I might take down the redirects for a little bit so we can try to capture the actual error.

This happens to me too , i use MyIE2. I manually input the photopost url , then click the forums link , only to e sent ack to the main page.
