No forums accessble from "Home"

Postby emk » Sat Jul 18, 2015 1:00 pm

If you go to "Home", it says:

"This board has no forums."

It's possible to access this forum only if you know where to look for it, but new users won't find it.

I think it would be OK to use this site as a watering hole until the problem is fixed, but if we want to do that, we need make sure users can actually use the site. rdearman, what would you like to do next?

The home link seems to point to a different space? I'm logged out there.

Looks like cookies aren't set up properly, so our login session is stored in the url (as "sid=blahblahblah"). The home button url is a plain link which doesn't add the sid. An admin will need to follow the instructions at this page.

THANKS!

That seems to have done the trick.

The home page still shows the message "This board has no forums." if you're not logged in, which could turn new people off. Probably need to make sure guests have permission to view the sub-forums.

OK, I've sorted this and given guests read-only access to the forums.
