pr0kforums start page

Currently, www.pr0kforums.com just goes to a Justhost placeholder page, but typing www.pr0kforums.com/forum goes to the forum.

We need a start page of some sort. Just something to replace the JustHost placeholder page. Even a blank page with a link that just says "Click here to visit the forum" would be good enough in the short term.

I set godaddy to redirect www.pr0kforums.com to www.pr0kforums.com/forum 5 hours ago, and it's still not working. Perhaps it will work eventually, but it really isn't a good solution.

Currently known working URLs to visit the forum-

http://www.pr0kforums.com/forum
http://www.pr0k.org
http://whiteknave.com/forum/

Why not a re-direct page like this:

quote:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Pr0kforums Title Page</title>
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=http://www.pr0kforums.com/forum"></HEAD>
<BODY>
Please be patient while the page re-directs.

Anyone who just types www.pr0kforums.com will think the forum is down.

ok.. www.pr0kforums.com now redirects to www.whiteknave.com/forum

this is temporary. i tried to redirect to www.pr0kforums.com/forum but that caused a redirect loop that could not be resolved. i don't like it pointing to whiteknave.com/forum, but until i can figure out a way to have it go to pr0kforums.com/forum, it will have to do.

duly noted.

as i said, the current redirect is only temporary. i'm at work right now, and can't really look into it. i've asked flak to help resolve the issue (since he's the most familiar with the software).

other than checking messages, i probably won't have time to mess with the forum until this coming weekend.

I just found something strange. If I follow the favorites link that I have which is http://www.pr0kforums.com/ the forum comes up, BUT the top part of the page says "Not Found". That's what I'm seeing as I type this message also.

actually i changed it to an addon domain. a parked domain is supposed to act just like your primary domain, but that's obviously not what you want. an addon domain lets you point it to a specific folder by default, so i pointed it to public_html/forum and then made public_html/forum/forum redirect there. that way pr0kforums.com is the forum and pr0kforums.com/forum (in case it's bookmarked) will take you to the forum.

interesting. i looked under subdomains first, and saw the pr0kforums listed there, so i didn't bother looking under "addon domains".

http://pr0kforums.whiteknave.com will also get you to the forum.
