    wierdness with 404s

    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">

    cheers,
    alex

    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.

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