Results 1 to 15 of 15

This is a discussion on Redirect within the Clubwrx Website/Forum Support - Report Errors forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; www.clubwrx.net does not redirect to ClubWRX Forum on my computer. I'm afraid it doesn't do this on several other computers ...

    Redirect

    www.clubwrx.net does not redirect to ClubWRX Forum on my computer. I'm afraid it doesn't do this on several other computers which means we are probably losing a lot of New Traffic

    on my computer when i type clubwrx.net into the address bar (firefox 3) i get a blank white page with the text "/title>" for about 1.5 seconds, then it redirects.

    When I do the same in Opera it doesn't redirect.

    Messaged Tim the following:

    "You are being redirected to ClubWRX Forum
    If redirect fails please click the link above"

    I know we are losing new traffic, and some old traffic simply because the redirect doesn't work on several browsers.

    Thanks,

    I think this may be an IE issue, because I've only seen this behavior when running IE on a PC. Anyone confirm?

    Unfortunately 75% of people use IE on a PC.

    Also Opera, and I believe google chrome sometimes have issues with the redirect.

    Why are you using an index.html page to perform a redirect? I would suggest setting up a redirect server side via cPanel or whatever control panel you use. This way you don't have to load the first page and wait for the redirect.

    The best solution in my opinion would be to get rid of the redirect all together and setup vBadvanced CMPS inside of the root directory (public_html) instead of being inside of the forums directory. This is how most forums do it. Here is an example S10PLANET.COM.

    I have no problem on my Mac but on my parents' PC yesterday on IE it wouldn't redirect. I searched google, thinking that maybe I misspelled it somehow and then clicked on the first link that came up and still wouldn't redirect. I had to go to clubwrx.net/forums in order for the page to load to log in.

    I guess nobody cares enough about this site to actually fix it.
