PROBLEMS WITH THE BOARD? Delete the /phpBB3/ from within the address bar.

Post by Dr. Shades »

Dear user,

If you're having any problems with the functionality of this board--viewing older threads, posting replies, whatever--then do this:
  1. UPDATE YOUR BOOKMARKS TO THIS SITE. Your current bookmarks probably go to http://www.mormondiscussions.com/phbBB3/ Delete any such bookmark and use this bookmark instead: http://www.mormondiscussions.com Most or all of your functionality problems should vanish.
  2. If you're still having problems, delete your cookies for this site, then do the above.
  3. If you still have any problems after both of those steps, view and log into this site using Internet Explorer (and not Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge).
If anyone else has a "fix" that has worked, please post it here for everyone's edification.

Interesting. I haven't had problems on any computer except my i-phone worked for a while and then quit working.

Sure enough it was going to the /phb. Getting rid of that fixes it. However, it seems to force you to log in. That's fine, but ultimately there are (or used to be) lurkers who don't want to register to read. But for now, for anyone who posts here having issues, I'd be really curious if that doesn't fix everything.

Shades look around at the features. The Who is Online feature shows all of our IP addresses. And in case you missed my other two posts...the people who couldn't read the board to start with can't read this flipping announcement either. I made two threads using the new URL in the thread title so they can see it.

You're welcome.

p.s. It doesn't matter if you are hidden, you can still view all the IP addresses using that feature. Not good. Not good at all.

Is the problem fixed now?

Shades, could you do an email to posters letting them know the board is back online and the changes needed to access it?

I thought I did. Did everybody NOT receive it?

Just a note that I'm not a moderator of any board here. I'm helping fix some issues where I can. That's an artifact of ..something...

Ultimately my name will go back to a normal color etc.

I was wondering about that, Isaac.

Thanks for that info. I was one of those unable to post to the board until I found this post and tried deleting the /phpBB3/ from my bookmarked url for this site. I wondered if my recent upgrade to Microsoft Edge might have had something to do with my problem. Apparently, based on what you said above, it did.
