Hey folks, I'm not sure if I'm the only one experiencing this but since last night when I click on a forum it gives me a "Server Not found" error message. It happened on my regular PC last night but then it was fine again, but now on the mobile site it's doing the same thing.

The problem appears to stem from some sort of URL change that may have been done lately. When you're in a subforum and you hit the site's "Back" button (again on mobile version), it takes you back to the list of forums, but now if you click one of them (in this case the VG deals subforum), it'll redirect you to a page like this:

http://www.cheapassg...isplay.php?f=11

Instead of: http://www.cheapassg...isplay.php?f=11

So as you can see one is in a forums folder and the other isn't.

Am I the only one getting these kinds of errors? Perhaps I'll clear my cache and cookies to see if that helps

Okay, I just tried to reproduce it again on my phone and it seems fine. I don't know why it did that earlier, and on my PC last night. I'm not crazy!:whee:

"Server not found" is an error message that as far as I can tell, doesn't exist. It did a great job of getting me to rush home from lunch as soon as I saw the thread on my phone, though. ;)

I did some tests and sure enough, when you're viewing the mobile style on one of the two servers (we're testing a new caching system on one of them), you'll get a problem where the cache interferes with some of the urls in the page. (Causing a "File not found" error when you click through a relative link.) That has since been fixed, and you shouldn't have any problems on either server.

That said, I expected there to be a few bugs like this when I turned on the new caching system - if there's anything out of the ordinary you've spotted, post it here and I'll take a look.
