    For the last week when I get onto the home page and press "message board" and then "forum" a page comes up telling me that says:

    'Welcome to BackyardChickens.com!

    You are looking for the following page /forum//home/backyard/public_html/forum

    Unfortunately that page can't be found. .....'

    So, I then go back to the home page and go through it again and every time I get right to the forum page.

    Do you have any idea why it takes me two times to get into the forum?

    I am running Windows Vista SP1 through Mozilla Firefox.

    LinckHillPoultry & FarmGirl01, what Opperating System and browser are you using?

    All the links on this page work fine for me:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/msgboard.html

    I'll try to see if I can figure it out. You say it has been for a couple weeks?

    Never have had that problem. Sounds like your browser. Try deleting your cookies and emptying your cache. Might or might not help, but wouldn't hurt!

    Can y'all tell me exactly which link is causing the problem or is it all of the links to the forum from that page (there are about 4 links to here from there).

    Thanks!

    The first two links ... does my first post that started this thread help with that question?

    Do you need more info?
