BVG -- Something has changed on accessing forum's Index Page

Postby Serenity Now (6134566) » Mon Feb 22, 2021 12:17 pm

If someone searches for YoWorld forums who hasn't previously visited the forums (or has deleted cookies, or using an incognito browser), the link to the Index Page doesn't work...

When I access the YoWorld forums, I have always typed forums.yoworld.com in the (incognito) browser's address bar and then clicked Enter.

The past several days, when I do this, I get a page that says:
This site can’t be reachedThe webpage at http://forums.yoworld.com/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
ERR_INVALID_RESPONSE

I discovered a work-around in that I type forums yoworld in the address bar and click Enter as if doing a search, and then click the second result, which is a link to the Discussions Forum, and it load fine.
If I click the first result, which is the Index Page, I get the error message.

However, once I've clicked the Discussions Forum link, then everything works as normal. I can again access the forums by typing forums.yoworld.com in the adddress bar and click Enter. This is as long as I don't close the (incognito) browser, or then I get the error message again and have to start over searching for the forums.

Is there a new redirect being used to get to the Index Page or something? If so, something isn't quite right.

I waited a few days before reporting this in hopes that it would clear up. I discovered the work-around on the first day, as I tend to look for such things when issues or bugs arise. But there may be people who can no longer access the forums.
