I know other people are having the same issue as I saw a post under Excel questions where someone had the problem for 3 days before it fixed itself. However, I am now having the problem as well (as I am just trying it now). If I do a search and click on a link, I too get a Page Not Found error.

Looks like when I do a search, the links of the results include the parameter "&highlight=" & [search criteria]. If I delete this parameter then the link works fine.

Is this a common problem, perhaps something to do with an phpBB update?

actually, we think it was due to a configuration of the users server. There was nothing we could do about it.

Ah, thanks. Makes it a little hard to work with, but at least its not something I messed up in my settings :) At least there is an easy fix :)

Ah, different issue, almost equally confusing to me as well.

This works for me and most other users, odd. Has to be something with your setup (although not sure where).

What kind of browser are you using?

I'll keep an eye on the poll though. :)
