Forum Not Found

ricecakericecake Maryland, USAMember Posts: 879
When I go to http://bricksetforum.com/, I get an error page saying that the forum isn't found. I have to explicitly put the 'www' at the front (so http://www.bricksetforum.com/), and then it works fine. It used to work without having to put the 'www' at the beginning.

    Works fine for me so suspect it will be your providers DNS server. Does it work ok on any other device you have or are they the same?

    Hmm, I'm not sure if it's a DNS issue since the name resolves, I just get a Vanilla Forums "page not found" error, not a local "can't find the host" error. I am using Firefox 43.0.2 on Windows 7, but I will try on my Android phone later today.

    I get the same with Firefox, but I typically put in 'www' anyway so have not really noticed it

    I just tried on my phone (stock Android 5.0.1 browser) via my home Verizon FIOS (I was previously on my work ISP) and I am still getting the same thing.

    I just got the same error for the first time right now.

    I can get the same error. Somewhere in Web page front end stuff you have to enable it working without the www. I assume during a routine update it got changed or lost maybe. @Huw...?

    Huw is enjoying a lovely well-earned holiday at the moment,  but I'm sure he will look into this when he's back.

    It's been doing this since the middle of September, but I'd assumed it was either deliberate or some limitation in the forum software - oops! :)

    I've tweaked some settings so it should be OK now, if not then let me know.

    Looks good to me. The forum seems to have moved from www.bricksetforum.com to bricksetforum.com, and www.bricksetforum.com redirects to bricksetforum.com.

    Existing links are also preserved when redirected. E.g. what used to be accessed via http://www.bricksetforum.com/discussion/513/master-thread-help-identifying-parts is now redirected to http://bricksetforum.com/discussion/513/master-thread-help-identifying-parts, so everyone's bookmarks should still work, too.

    Yes, looks to be working for me now as well. Thanks @Matthew!

    This isn't related but I got this message a few minutes ago:
