I guess this is for SCROFT.

One little thing I noticed not working. After logging on I clicked on the "View posts since last visit" icon on the main page. On the resulting "Search found ## matches" page when I click on the orange icon before the topic names that's for viewing new posts I get a "The page cannot be found" - "HTTP 404 - File not found" error.

FYI, the white icon next to the name of the person who last posted in the Last Post column does take you to the last post, but the "new posts" icon does not work.

This is what I did/got after I logged on this evening:

Clicked on the "View posts since last visit (17)" link on the right side at the top of the home page.
Got "result" page with "Search found 6 matches" above list of new postings.

Placed cursor over the little yellow/orange icons before all 6 titles in the Topics column.
A small pop-up that displays "View newest post" appears.

Clicked on all 6 "View newest post" icons.
Got the following error for all 6:

Not Found
---------------------------------
The requested URL /viewtopic.php was not found on this server.
Apache/2.0.54 Server at www.openplanesim.com Port 80
(This is different now from the error I first posted)

Placed cursor over the little white icons after all 6 user names in the Last Post column.
A small pop-up that displays "View latest post" appears.

Clicked on all 6 "View latest post" icons.
Takes me to the last post in the topic for all 6.

Once at the last post or any other in the topic that has a little yellow/orange "New post" icon before the Posted: Date/Time it just stays on the topic with no error.

Yup, yer right, the orange page icon beside the arrow doesn't work on the Posts since last visit screen; but I usually just chew through the front page dipping into the forums with the new posts icons, and when I want to look at a topic, I click on the topic title, so I never noticed.

Hmmm _still works for me... Do you have a popiup blocker running? (Not sure it is a popup but it does move you to somewhere else.. Check your security setting also

For me, it's only the orange icon that doesn't work. If I click on the post subject text, it works fine. Seeing as the subject text is a much larger target anyway, I'd never tried clicking the icon before.

Looking at one I haven't opened yet, today, the Me163 thread; the subject text gives the link http://www.openplanesim.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4554&highlight=

which links to the thread fine. The orange icon gives the link http://www.openplanesim.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4554&view=newest

which results in a 404 page with the text

Code:
The requested URL /viewtopic.php was not found on this server.

I don't think its a pop-up blocked thing for two reasons: When I run the curser over either orange "View newest post" or white "View latest post" icons the small text pop-ups display and the "View latest post" link works.

I also have always successfully used the orange icon link in the past...things just connected in my brain...before we moved the site...

After I wrote the post above, I tested the links in it and they functioned as I described. Now, however, the second link works, going to a page which says "no new posts in this topic". But today I haven't yet visited another post, and for that one, I get the following link from the orange icon:
http://www.openplanesim.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4568&view=newest
and it now yields the 404 error.

This means, I think, that the failure is contingent on who is looking at the link, and what their cookie state is. I guess if I go and look at the post in topic 4568, I will subsequently get the "no new posts in this topic" page rather than the 404 when I click on the link.

...Oh. One more rather useful piece of information: I looked at the address bar for the 404 error I get from the link in this post, and it says
http://www.openplanesim.com/viewtopic.php?p=33259#33259

Obviously, there is a a "forums/ " missing out of the middle of that link, and that is why it is failing.

As I said, it doesn't seem like a big deal to me, because I can just click on the thread title instead of the orange icon, and I can get to the thread fine.
