if you try going to http://www.efnet.info , does it still not work? i am guessing that maybe you are trying to go to http://www.efnet.org , which currently isn't resolving.

*** can't find http://www.efnet.org: Non-existent host/domain

on the other hand, requests to efnet.org/forum are now, it seems, being forced to redirect to efnet.info/forum , so maybe your browser is remembering this and going to efnet.info for the forums, and has the front page for http://www.efnet.org cached, but then when you try to follow efnet.org links, they don't work.

the http://www.efnet.info front news page seems to work fine for me, along with the 'post comments' links.

to keep users from having cookie problems, we have to enforce that they use efnet.info/forum to view the forum.
if you view the news using efnet.us or efnet.org, and click view comments, it will redirect you to efnet.info/forum, thereby making the link appear to not work.

i'm currently on dialup visiting my parents for the holiday, i'll look at fixing the .htaccess file to keep the remainder of the url when it redirects when i get home in a couple days

Well, someone *could* use rewrite rules to make it go to the appropriate thread within the forum with efnet.info in the url instead of efnet.org or whatever.

if you would bother to check, i wrote .htaccess/rewrite rules a coulple of weeks ago that do just that.

efnet# cat .htaccess
RewriteEngine ON
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.efnet.info
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^efnet.info
RewriteRule /* http://www.efnet.info%{REQUEST_URI}

edit: according to file modification timestamp, i actually did this dec 5
