Stephen sent me a PM stating that the Car ATGO logo at the top left of the site does not always link to the main ATGO site...

No matter what I do, it ALWAYS links to www.austinthirdgen.org

He claims if you are on the View new Posts page, or the Forum Home Page: http://www.austinthirdgen.org/forum/index.php that it links to the forum instead of the home page....

Is anyone else able to reproduce this?

Always goes to the main page for me, but then I rarely use it because it goes to the main page.

Are you suggesting that I am incorrect in seeing what my laptop is doing and using Firefox?

I only know what my laptop is doing & you didn't exactly share what happens when. From certain points, it goes to 1 location, other times it goes somewhere else. But the change in the ending point is the same, for the starting point, despite shutting down & restarting every day.

Go figure....
I go into the Sent messages to copy & paste what I told you about where oit goes from where & there are NO messages in my Sent folder, despite the fact that there should be pages & pages of them.

Guess I could get screen shots to shopw at the bottom, of where the link is sending me, which isn't always the same place.

When you switch to IP BOard Pro format, it will work. What format are you using Stephen?

From the SAME New Posts page, look at the bottom left at what the target URL is. First pic shows the target using the cars/ATGO pic link at the top, like you suggested, but obviously goes to New Post. Second pic, using the text link below the cars/ATGO link wants to go to the Main page.

WTF???? Now I can't attach pics?

I'm using the same thing as I always have & none of it has ever been a problem.

I am seeing now, that the cars/ATGO pic always takes me to where I am.


If I'm on the ATGO Home page? It takes me to the ATGO Home page.
If I'm on the Forum Home page? It takes me to the Forum Home page.

But the text link of AustinThirdGen.Org text link below always takes me to the ATGO.com page. I seem to recall that link changing too. Guess he fixed that, yet told me to use the other one to go to the Home page, which changes.

Scroll all the down to the bottom of the page. Look at bottom left, there's a drop down box for SKIN SELECTOR. Change that to IP.Board Pro and see if it changes.....Doesn't hurt to try.

Thanks. Switching to Pro fixed the Link problem. BUT.....I still can't attach pics. I don't understand how it all changed in the first place. Board software update/change?

He claims right. At least for his computer. And I claim the same for my computer. smile.gif

Here's the HTML code I see:
CODE
<a href='http://www.austinthirdgen.org/forum/index.php?'><!--ipb.logo.start--><img src='style_images/8_atgologo.png' alt='IPB' style='vertical-align:top' border='0' /><!--ipb.logo.end--></a>


Even on the main page, I see a link to the forums, not the main page.

Stephen, I don't think this was a question of whether you are lying or not but how many others see the same problem.
I do too. You're not lying. :thumbsup:

Steven, is this an IPB SW problem? Does it generate the link on the fly? If you tell me which PHP file to look in, I can take a peek.

Stephen is onto something here. Only the IPB Pro color scheme points the link to ATGO main page. All other color schemes point it to the forums. I call IPB bug! smile.gif

RL found the problem. But I couldn't find any fix to the Attach File thing disappearing.

Lou is right that if you change the skin to anything other then IP.board Pro the link at the top left goes to the forums not the main page.

Stephen, I''m guessing wants to use a different skin or maybe the classic skin and when he choses to change the skin color and uses the link/picture in the top left corner it takes him to the forums page not the main page.

I just went through the skins and tried to use the link/picture in the top left corner and any skin other then IP.Board Pro will take you to the forums page not the main page.

Short version: No.

Long version: Yes, but that would require we upgrade to IBP 3.1 as that is the only version supported by them... That would be $150 we would have to raise.

Okay, this is the exact reason for this post, I don't have the time to sit there and try every combination, by having the entire community look at the problem we were able to find the root cause.

Lou, the root cause is the theme files. Those can be managed from the control panel, I now remember modifying the IPBPro skin's link to always point to the home page, I totally forgot to change them for the other themes. I fixed it in the "Look and Feel" tab, select the drop down icon to the right of the theme name, modify global html, and then modify global header. If you look at the ipbpro one you will see the modification I made, those changes need to be made to the other skins. If you can't do it I'll get to it later.

Thanks Lou, and thanks Stephen for pointing out the problem. Like I said earlier, I wasn't calling you a liar, I was trying to get more details about the problem since I was using the skin that wasn't affected.
