Forum Suggestions & User Assistance - wierdness with 404s
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
dunno if this is a known issue or not (couldn't find anything on it) and dunno if it's related to the new release or not. if i type in a url that should generate a 404 from bikeforums (ie http://www.bikeforums.net/blahblakljdsfoihwe/) i get a page that does an endless refresh. the issue is with the HTML in the refresh 404 catch:
<META http-equiv="refresh" content="1";URL=http://www.bikeforums.net/index.php">
there's an extra quote in there after the 1... it should be:
<META http-equiv="refresh" content="1; URL=http://www.bikeforums.net/index.php">
What are you talking about?
Could you explain the problem in English?

In plain English... the "404" page is the one that is automatically loaded by a server when one reaches a non-existent page. It typically says: "Error", "Wrong Page", but in this case, it is arranged so that it automatically loads the Bikeforums main page.
Or it should work that way... but it doesn't. Because of the coding error Alex talks about, it reloads itself.
...and I was thinking I'd get a nice pair of Zipp wheels if I typed in that URL... Oh well :D ;)

Thanks, this has been fixed until I can come up with a real 404. :)
