Unable to view forum

Post by ajtruckle »

I have searched the foruma nd can't find an answer to this. Whilst several can view my forum, one user can't. It refuses to display on his computer giving him a 404 error.

Why?

That could be a million different reasons.
If it only happens to this one person its almost certainly not a problem with the forum. He should try cleaning out his cache, restart his internet connection, test a few other sites, try pinging your site. If he gets replies from your site name when he pings them it would probably be a problem with his browser and not his connection. can he try viewing the site in another browser.

404 is a page not found, are you sure he is viewing the correct url?

It seems that if I give him a link that includes the /index.php at the end that it works abd he can see it.
