    Main link to Forum from OpenCarry.org is broken

    Current, defective link: http://www.opencarry.org/?page_id=99

    Desired link: http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/forum.php

    Someone needs to tidy up the opencarry.org facebook page.

    No kidding. They use WordPress for their front end, so it's a very easy fix. Let me grab a stopwatch and check how long it takes to change/correct the same link on my own website.

    GO!...

    96 seconds.

    Come on, OCDO. You're loosing clicks, and that's lost advertising revenue...

    7:29 PM to 11:36 PM for someone to actually notify those that can do something about the situation.

    That's got to be a new speed record!

    So then it took 5 days and 4 hours to contact the appropriate folks?

    Never. I've had no problems getting on via 'puter or smart phone.

    Just noticed some folks were having problems and how long it took for someone to say they contacted TPTB. Hammer6 said he's been having problems for 5 days, then I added the 4 hours yesterday between Since9 saying things needed fixing and JoeSparky saying he PM'd the moderator. 5 days, 4 hours.

    stay safe.

    Not a Windows problem - I'm operating Win Pro 7.

    I usually have a window for ODCO open on my home computer and on my phone so I didn't notice this until yesterday. I tried going to the forums via the main page on 2 of my home computers, my phone, 3 different workstations at work and the main page link to the forums is broken. Operating system = irrelevant.

    Fixed!

    Thanks for the heads-up. I have fixed the issue. It appears that a recent update of WordPress (or one of the security plugins I run) decided the redirect javascript I have on that link needed to be commented out.
