if you try going to , does it still not work? i am guessing that maybe you are trying to go to , which currently isn't resolving.

*** can't find Non-existent host/domain

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

the 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 to view the forum.
if you view the news using or, and click view comments, it will redirect you to, 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 in the url instead of 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} !^
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^
RewriteRule /*{REQUEST_URI}

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