Bookmarks and email links dead

When I use my bookmarks (chrome), I get this:

[h=2]vBulletin Message[/h]Invalid Forum specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator

I have located my forum groups through the community page and yesterday even re-bookmarked all my forum groups and tested them and they worked.. but today, it's broken again, and my new email notification links are getting the same thing......

Any clue what's going on? I did post on the advertised Breast Feeding record "conversation".. I don't get that new feature.. I liked the thread on the Everything Breastfeeding board much better cause I could watch it grow. But when I Joined the conversation, it said I wasn't logged in, so I logged in and when I posted to the conversation, it didn't have my avatar/profile pic. I even got a PM from Missy thanking me for joining t he conversation and that I should set up my profile. It makes no sense to me how I could have a separate profile for the forums... I've set up mt profile several times in the last year.. every time a mod puts a reminder that an incomplete profile can cause log in issues....

I have no clue if the two are linked or not.

Help?

You aren't the only one, I've been having some issues with my email notification links. When I click on them, I get a blank page (or at least I was, the last one seemed to work).

I am having this too. As well as when I click the link from the forum index to my birth board (August 2012) it just routes me back to the forum index.

Now my bookmarks are working, but my email links are sending me to "page not found" showing at the top left corner and that is all that's there besides the blank white page.

Good to know it's not just me.

Hmmmm... everything seems to be working for me.

Mary, I got the email notification for the thread you test posted here, clicked the link and it brought me properly to the thread. Now... it doesn't seem to do it immediately like for the pm's... in the email notification I got it during the night sent me all 3 of the new threads here. I can't remember if there is a setting that can be adjusted about that or not... I'll have to ask Missy/do some looking.

I am going to suggest clearing your cache's... all cookies/temp files/history/etc... see if perchance it's being caused by a corrupt cookie or something like that. I will also double check with Missy on this.

Thanks for reporting these! Like Marla, I haven't had this happening but definitely will try to see what I can discover for you! I may have some more questions so please check back!

I tried clearing my history and it seemed to fix the issue for a bit until today. When I click my bookmark for the August 2012 board it takes me to the index. Most of the time I can scroll down and click the link and go to the board no problem. But at times over the past few days I click the link for the board from the index and it just directs me back to the index.

That's what is happening to me, I get the "page not found." Still happening, except not every single email link, it seems to be hit or miss. Strange.

Same thing here. My bookmark link was broken, so I rebookmarked and it is broken again.

So for two days it's been working for me and I have done nothing to fix it. Tis a strange issue indeed. You would think it wouldn't be on and off again like it has been.
