Regional boards getting a 404 error


#1

When I click on the SFBA link, or any other regional link in “USA”, I get a 404 page-not-found error. This has been going on for a couple of hours.


#2

Apparently fixed now, thanks.


#3

Still an issue for the Northeast.


#4

Thanks for flagging.

hmmph. I was able to get to them fine (didn’t do anything to fix them). @kattyeyes, can you try again?


#5

Just did. Back in biz–thanks!


#6

Could be some system quirks when i reorganized the boards last night. hopefully it doesn’t happen again. if it does, please let me know. thanks!


#7

It’s happening again this morning.


#8

Can you tell me which board and the procedures you tried to get to those board? phone or pc? let me try to recreate the issue.

Thanks.


#9

PC, recent Chrome. I just clicked on the SFBA link, and then on the USA link. Both turned up 404s.


#10

the SFBA link from the front page?


#11

Yup. Yup again because of the 5-character limit.


#12

can you clarify what you meant by the 5 char limit? for the posts?


#13

I originally just typed “Yup.”, but I got a pop-up that said posts have to be longer than 5 characters.


#14

I redirected the www,hungryonion.com address to www.hungryonion.org yesterday afternoon. are you using the .com web site when you got the error?

i tried using Chrome on PC and still ok. Can you clear the cache if this persists?

Thanks.


#15

No, I’m using the .org URL. ETA: clearing the cache didn’t work.


#16

Here’s the failing URL: http://www.hungryonion.org/c/san-francisco-bay-area . I get the same 404 if I paste it into a new Firefox session.


#17

ok its because of the sf category getting moved to the USA category on a couple of days ago.

the current link i am getting is
http://www.hungryonion.org/c/united-states-of-america/san-francisco-bay-area

let me figure out if there is a way to ‘rebuild’ the home page so you won’t get the 404. thanks for flagging and debugging with me.

Anyone else getting this?


#18

i reorganized the board again. so hopefully the front page is pointing you to:
http://www.hungryonion.org/c/regions/san-francisco-bay-area


#19

Yes, it works now. Thanks.


#20

Its not just you. Yesterday i moved the general discussion board to the bottom of the front page. the whole group disappeared (404) even though the threads are still accessible. i just ended up recreating the group.

I have to keep an eye out when I move boards around.
