Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.

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... :)

Only way i can get on is via "tapatalk" on my smart phone. I much prefer accessing via my home computer!
Has anyone pm'd Mike or John on this?

Just pm'd John!

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!

stay safe.

No it hasn't been 5 days and 4 hours Skid. I sent Grapeshot a PM yesterday morning. When did you contact someone?
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.

I have nothing to do with the vBulletin® controls.

It must be a windows problem my brother had no trouble linking in with his Ubuntu program
Not a Windows problem - I'm operating Win Pro 7.

Apparently this is an isolated problem, effecting a very few.

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. :cuss:
