Well, it's a long story, but I had to turn off UBB Accelerator which is shorthand for saying that all the links now are back to .cgi instead of .php.

So, I changed the home page link (the big star) for the time being, and there may be a ton of other subtle changes (like some links in posts no longer work).

There was a PHP upgrade on the server and it seemed to bork the ancient UBB PHP thing, so there it is.

I am working on a fix for this, so sit tight.

If I try and get in by my bookmark, I get Error 500. If I go back and find a history log of a thread from when I was here before, I can get in. Can't get in at all at work.

I got in with no errors yesterday - but also with no text or anything else on the page. Just an absolute blank.

I think it was still (or again) a php, though. Perhaps that's what caused the problems.

OK today. And a few days ago I was OK as well, but then I was on Linux, not Windows. Does that make a difference as well?

If your bookmark is for the forum home page and not the root page with the Red Book background, you'll have problems.

.php links are no longer working. So update your bookmarks and refresh your browsers (if you're caching the old title page).

I guess that would explain my situation and why things are fine now []

Good ol F5! I flushed the toilet (dumped cache) as well, & added a new bookmark with the "cgi-bin" url.
