FR3 Site change?

Suddenly my well-used url to the FR3 discussion page is not working, nor does checking on the FR3 subgroup link on the overall page. Has the link changed? Thanks for your help!

What do you mean "is not working"? What's the failure?

Yes I was using http://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/f232/

It sent me to the main Forest River Forum main page. I love the FR3 site and am looking forward to being able to get to it again!

Link to FR3 page not working

Were you able to figure out why the link to the FR3 discussion page is sending me to the general forum discuss page rather than the FR3 page. The link I was using was:
FR3 - Forest River Forums

Darn it! When I typed in the link I was using, the operating system changed it to the shortcut version. The url I was using was:

FR3 - Forest River Forums

However I can now get to the page by going to the main page in the forum and searching for Fr3 which didn't work this morning. It is really no trouble to do that, so will thank you for your answer earlier today and just go in using the two step method!

I'd say the "operating system" you mention is your browser. Which one are you using? Can you just type into a post the URL you were using. Apparently, the cut and paste (or whatever you're doing) is resolving to something you don't like -- but it's the same every time.

All the links posted here take me to the FR3 sub-forum with no problems.

Are using the full site on a computer/laptop or one of the apps?

I am using the same computer and links that I have been using for the past year. Once I could get to the FR3 site from the search box in on the main forum page but most of the time I only go back to the main forum page. I really am flummoxed!

What happens when you click the actual link on the home page?

I've circled it in the pic.

Finch, do you mind answering the questions I asked on May 17? If you answered, I apologize for missing it.
1. Which browser are you using?
2. Can you just type into a post (not cut/paste) the URL you were using?

Thanks for not giving up on this! When I click on the FR3 link on the main page it just takes me back to the forum main page. I am going to try turning my computer off and on to see if that helps - always the fall-back position of the truly desperate!

Turning off and on did not make any difference.

Also, all other links in the general discussion motorhomes section (e.g. Georgetown) works fine.

That redirect in the URL seems odd. Have you tried running any anti-virus or malware detection software to see if you maybe have something?

I think the redirects are odd too, but my malware scan is clean. I have discovered that I can get to the site if I am in incognito mode. And interestingly, I can no longer post replies to you via the link on either my computer or via my cell phone as I get the message that the site will not load because there are too many redirects.

This is an odd situation, but I have a good workaround now and I thank you for your assistance. If/when I finally figure this out, I will send you a post! I sure have appreciated your help -when I am traveling, I really count on the forum.
