Will this improve the site problems with banner ads conflicting with not being able to scroll past the top links on the forum as this started to happen again a couple of days ago but couldn't report it because when clicking on the home page link, I couldn't scroll down to Site Technical issues. Many thanks

Direct Link:



http://www.dogforum.org/forumdisplay.php?f=19

Save as an Internet Favourite in case you need it.

Otherwise open from any forum discussion link and scroll down to the very end to select a discussion using the Forum Jump dropdown list...

This Forum Jump feature is also at the end of a quick reply webpage so please check these workaround options.

http://signin2bush.does.it is a shortcut to sign in 2 bush internet's webmail and using this http://www.mail2web.com login I get this type of forum link visible onscreen and it linked me here:

https://www.mail2web.com/cgi-bin/red...lid=0&newsite=

then the URL link continues with this part:

http://www.dogforum.org/showthread.p...3&goto=newpost

Here is a full link:

full forum link

Text in that 2nd part of the forum link refers to the t for topic number.

http://www.dogforum.org/showthread.p...3&goto=newpost

Longer URLs that the actual forum topic link may be avoided by testing other email accounts that don't add extras to external links.

Even so, this is what a bush internet link goes to, when using a PC, even though the forum doesn't show the full URL:

http://www.dogforum.org/showthread.p...3&goto=newpost

Secure logins for some email services could create https:// external links which some Internet set top boxes may not work well with. Please test.

Sometimes shortcut URLs like http://signin2bush.does.it can solve some of these https:// errors by creating a http:// workaround instead eg http://www.has.it where you register an email address to create upto 5 shortcut URLs eg website shortcut description name... then dot then says.it, knows.it, shows.it, does.it, owns.it.

Hi doggone-tired Yes I realise the limitaions with a STB! But the email notification link problems (not being able to explore the link) has started about 2 weeks ago so to get round this till it's fixed ( which it may be now)

I've also tested the Fetch TV Freeview set top box which can be set up for the Internet via the Ethernet connection. This proves the links are fully enclosed and become active and link to the correct target URLs. However, I just turned the set top box on so the Internet cache was virtually empty and I still tried the PC again. Just now, the PC failed on loading one of these reply webpages. So it could be random errors...

Another Netgem user eh Have you tested any email notifications yet? Like I said in a different thread on here ( email notifications)

Some members on here since the server migration took place nearly a month ago are not gettting email notifications to their email client what they registered for dogforum. while I get them in my email client ok, quite a few times some links wont open till I have rebooted my Netgem ( Classique) so I too would say theres a scripting error or some other random error/bug ( server side)
that has only come to light since the forum servers migrated last month.
