I use Chrome for my laptop PC browser. Until about two days ago, the quick link for DC (one of eight that appear whenever I open a new tab) worked perfectly. Now when I click on it, I'm taken to a page with this message:
The requested URL /cgi-bin/redirect.ha was not found on this server."
and the display in the address bar reads as such:
and the tab above the address bar: "404 Not Found"
I of that happens even if I type in "www.discusscooking.com" into a clean browser window. Currently the only way I can access DC on my laptop is by either going into my history, selecting a thread I viewed earlier, and clicking on it OR by manually putting in the address "www.discusscooking.com/forums". I can then go anywhere I want...except the "Home" screen! I prefer that page rather than the "New Posts" page for perusing the current activity. I'm also using version 3.0 because I don't like the formatting on the front page of version 1.0.
BTW, all of the other quick links on that tab page work just fine. Also, accessing DC works as it always has if I use either my phone or my tablet - each are Samgung products with Android systems.
Himself did a bit of trouble-shooting. We updated Chrome. He finagled a couple other techy things. Still get the message and can't gain entrance without a little creativity. He said something about the link my laptop is using for access is broken. So is my spirit...I think the entity known as "DC" doesn't like me anymore.
PS: I can get a perfect home page if I use the Windows Edge browser. Nope, not an option. I left Windows ages ago and never looked back...
Appreciate any help and suggestions you could give me. Thanks in advance. Until then, I'll just do it "my way".
