View Full Version : Links not working!?!?

I have noticed that since the last software upgrade, while the built in navigation links work for moving around the site, the links folks post for other sites and the connections to profiles do not seem to work?

Is any one else having a similar problem?

Do any of our illustrious leaders know why? Is this something in the UBB software or in my browser (IE 4.0)?

I don't know about the illustrious leaders, but I haven't had a problem.

Thanks for the try Rich, but no luck. My brower recognizes the URL as an address but will not try to connect to it.

While I'm here the only links that seem to work are those for navigating within the site. Any outside links, whether a URL listed on a post or the Links or Library sections, do not connect.

But, everything seems to work normally on other sites. While in TFL I cannot even read the member profiles. That link won't work for me either.

JJB,
I just upgraded to IE 5.0; the links seem to work for me. I had 4.0 earlier and they worked too.

I ain't got the computer smarts to help much but, did you try re-installing IE at microsoft.com? It's free. Hope something works for you.

Finally upgraded to IE 5.0, and my son downloaded Netscape Navigator. The links worked fine with both the upgrades. Still have no idea why they stopped working on IE 4 after the UBB upgrade.

Back in full connnection now.
