Warning problem
« on: 04 October 2011, 01:42:03 AM »
For Terry and the mods.
I use Yahoo mail for my advisory emails for the site. The first time I go to open one of the emails advising of new messages I get this warning:
Quote
The page at http://36ohk6dgmcd1n.yom.mail.yahoo.net says:

Warning! It appears that you are about to access a website that has non-standard web-address format. Such sites may contain harmful entities such as viruses. We recommend you use extreme caution.
I have tried it on firefox, IE and chrome and get the same warning every time. After clicking on "accept" and opening the first message I get no more warnings on subsequent messages.

I can work with it, but the concern is that new people may be warned off the site.
Cheers, Alan, T2, Australia.

Um... I don't know what the reason for that is, though I can see there is no www. after the http://  Maybe Terry can shed light?

I get mine through Gmail and not had a problem - maybe something with the way Yahoo mail works it around?  In which case I'm not sure there's a whole lot to be done from our end.

It happened several times at first, but it hasn't happened since I wrote that post. I just started this morning and everything seems to be working smoothly.


Looks like it was new-forum gremlins.


Forget I spoke :)

Sorry, I think what has happened is that Terry (and to a lesser extent myself) spent ages setting permissions and sorting out layout etc and then there was an upgrade which appears to have reset everything to default settings.  We now need to go over all the permissions and stuff again.

Understood.

The game of life can be tough enough without the gremlins constantly moving the goalposts.

Sorry. I don't think this has anything to do with www not being there or with any tweaks to the set-up. Without knowing what Yahoo looks for in the URL or what checks it applies it's hard to say what the trigger is. But it's a bit ironic from the company's whose mail service is one of the forum's biggests sources of spam.

One little problem / difference on this site is that after I have posted a reply rather than going back into the thread i was replying to, it puts me  on the page listing topics and I have to re-enter the thread to read my post. Not a real problem more an observation.

You can set that in your profile - Profile/modify profile/Look and Layout/ tick the box that says return to thread after posting.  However I have done it for you.
 
I thought I'd set it as a default, but it may have been the upgrade that has changed it.  Will look into it later.
