    Mike, don't know if it's just me but whenever I am on my PM page and I scroll down to the menu where I can jump to another forum it goes to a page that says 'Invalid link'. It never happens when I use that scroll menu on other pages just on the PM page.
    Is it just me or is there a problem with the links there?
    :confused:

    Seems to work alright for me, but that link program WAS part of the upgrade the other day, so it could have problems...

    What browser and OS are you using? Does it happen with any forum, or just some of them? Does it happen from the PM inbox, or just within a PM message?

    I'm using Windows 98 and Netscape 6.1.

    It only ever happens from my inbox, I use the link on other forums and it's fine.

    This is the message I get 'Invalid forum specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the webmaster,
    :confused:

    I couldn't reproduce the problem in IE5, IE5.5, IE6, or Netscape 6.0 so I was about to tell you that you're crazy... then I got an email telling me that they just released ANOTHER new version to fix a long list of last-minute bugs, including:
    "fixed problem with forumjump in usercp with Netscape 6.1"

    *sigh*

    Look for that to be fixed sometime within the next 48 hours. Thanks for letting me know!

    I was getting the "If you followed a valid link, please notify the webmaster" now and then also but not from the PM page but just from opening a tread.

    Just upgraded it to the newest version that's supposed to be better with Netscape 6.1...

    Let me know if you continue to have any problems!

    It still doesn't work with my Nescape 6.1 but it works fine with my IE so it's no problem really as I'm using IE more nowadays anyway.
