Weird redirect/error
« on: September 05, 2013, 01:10:29 PM »
This is on the "Coffee Break" board.

There's a thread on ridiculous criticisms from parents. It's now up to 11 pages, according to the display. The first ten pages are readable normally. When I try to get to the 11th page, either by using "next page" from page 10 or by clicking on the "11" at the list of topics, I get a "file not found" from an unrelated site (one of those annoying ones that ignores the browser "back" button, so I have to pull down the list of recent pages and click on the one for EHell).

The URL I am trying to reach is http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=129815.150

What I am being sent to is http://www.entertainmentearth.com/item_archive/items/Buffy_Anyankas_Amu

Is the page you're getting redirected to one you've visited recently, either deliberately or accidentally?

My first thought is to clear your cache and try again.

I just clicked on your first link with no issues.  So it just seems to be a little gremlin in there somewhere.

It might be partly a caching problem, but that part of EHell this morning is the first time I ever saw that redirect--either the URL it was pointing to or the image.

ETA: I just cleared the cache, and then went back to the Coffee Break folder. This time, I got a glimpse of what looked like an EHell thread page, and then the stupid "ha, ha, we don't have what you're looking for" witch picture reappeared.

Ugh! I don't know what it could be, then - I've been following that thread and had no problems.

If it's just literally that one page that won't load, you could always try changing your settings so there's a different number of posts on each page. I set it so I have 25 posts per page instead of 15, so I only see about 6 pages on that thread, and I haven't had a problem getting to any of them.

Also, you said you cleared your cache, but did you clear your cookies too? It sounds like you've got something redirecting your page that isn't at all associated with eHell, and that could be a bigger problem.

Thanks. I have just gone through and deleted a lot of cookies I either didn't recognize or didn't think I needed. (Now I have to hope it isn't weird lurking flash cookies, which won't show on the Flamingvixen list.)
