    Wonky behavior part 2 8/6/2013

    Clicking on any thread created before today appears to redirect me to a 404 page. Threads created today seem to be OK, but give me a "you're not logged in" type of banner.

    Are the site owners "testing" again?

    I'm glad that I am not the only one having this problem. I thought I had some virus re-directing my clicks.

    Here is the link that I get sent to:

    Yeah. I think dev was having a slight conversion anomaly that is hopefully dust by now.

    Thanks for standing by. Let us know if any wonkiness returns.

    That seemed to post quite fast.

    [EDIT]
    This one too.

    I don't recall dBforums ever being this quick.

    Thank you for your patience.

    How and where are you seeing this link? If it is current, we (iNet) need to get that fixed. If it is an antique (that's over an hour old in the world of the web), then why are you playing with that old stuff ???

    Coach me a bit on where and how you're seeing this stuff, and I'll see what I can do to help make your world a nicer place!

    Interesting! I just tried that link, and it worked fine for me.

    What OS and web browser are you using? I've tested this using Windows 7 with IE 8, 9, and 10 as well as FireFox and Chrome. I've also tested with Windows 8 using IE 10, FireFox, and Chrome. I could test with Ubuntu, Red Hat, or Debian but you'd have to be specific about what version and architecture.

    Are you using any kind of "web caching" accelerator on your workstation? Those can also cause this kind of problem.

    With two of us (gvee and I) in radically different locations using different hardware and software getting good results, I think that the web page is Ok. We just need to figure out what is causing you such heartburn and get that cleaned up too!

    I cleared the cache and it worked.

    Just for the record, I am on Windows 7 64 with WaterFox, a 64 bit sibling of FireFox. This is the first time I have had a problem, minor, but something I will need to remember moving forwards.

    Thanks for working through this with me.

    No problem!

    While I can't fix the entire universe, I am pretty determined to do what I can to improve the parts that are under my control. While I don't have full control of DBForums, I can make a big difference when things go worng here!

    I'm glad to know that DBForums is behaving for you again!
