OK - I'm dumb. You have to hit me in the head with these things.....

Where can I find the "landing page"?
www.fjriders.com

If you haven't noticed, the forums are at www.fjriders.com/forums now. But I added some code so that old forum links are detected and redirected properly and automatically. So if you visit this forum by a bookmarked link like search.php?search_id=unreadposts will redirect and you'd never see the landing page.

Old forum links won't go to a 404 Page not found this way.


Well I landed on the location suggested.

And some shitstain, dog ball licker, stole the wheels an tires off my Lear.

Misspelled word. For you that word is spelled L-e-e-r.

I'm kinda not understanding the purpose of the landing page..... not a fan of extra steps, so my bookmark is to the forums page. The links to recent posts aren't (yet) functional.

Right now, it is not very useful. Give me some time. The overall purpose is the flexibility to add other functionality that would otherwise be impossible in the confines of the forum software.

We are also adding functionality, organization, and ease of maintenance with stuff behind the scenes that you probably don't see.

One benefit of the landing page is that if we need to take the forum or other connected site down for upgrade or maintenance, the landing page will be there and we can put a note there letting everyone know what's going on.

Just know that if your link directly to the forum doesn't work, back up to the landing page to check for more info.

That's a great Idea.....when I try to come to the forum and it doesn't work and I text you to ask you what's wrong you can tell me to check the landing page. :lol:
