Thanks in advance everyone!
I'm trying to visit a web page, and keep getting the following error.

Any ideas on how to get to the page in question ?

Server Error in '/' Application.

By the looks of it, it would seem the site itself is having the problem.

Link to the site here so someone else can verify whether or not the site works for them.

I get that error when I click your link, but when I go to just simply "www.covers.com" and then click on "forums" it shows up fine. After doing that, the link you gave me even works too.

Erik, did you try going to the main page and then clicking on the forums link also?

That way still works for me.

Works for me with the forums link, so then I tried the URL again, and it works (which makes sense, because it's the same URL.)

Did they fix it, or did something change on my end when I visited through the "forums" link?

EDIT:
Found my answer. When I deleted all cookies for covers.com, I got the error again. It must be a cookie thing.

In Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options... > Privacy. Make sure the slider is at Medium.

In Firefox, go to Tools > Options... > Privacy > Cookies and make sure the "Allow sites to set Cookies" box is checked.
