All internal links on the board seem messed up (missing /Forum/)

Hey, since this morning I've been having issues doing anything on the site. It seems that if I click anywhere (such as the link to this very forum or the button to post this post), I get a 404 not found.

It seems that all the links now point to "www.alfaowner.com/" rather than to "www.alfaowner.com/Forum/" which is what the site is expecting.

So I am able to post this post, and browse the site, by manually changing the link each time I click, but I imagine some hamster keeled over somewhere or something, and that this is not the intended state of affairs. Thought I'd report my findings.

Thanks for highlighting a workaround, the Enhanced View also works for anyone on Mobile.

I've sent Admin a message about this issue

I also found that if you go back to a previous version of one of the forum pages it seems to then start working (though that may be a caching issue as it may now all be fixed).

Still more than a bit dicey on my end (I had to manually append the URL to get where I wanted to go).

In addition to the problems mentioned above, last night the system kicked me out and wouldn't accept a log-in. Instead I got that same 404 error mentioned above.

'Forum' in the URL goes, comes back, goes again. The sidebars take a holiday and then come back.

Who on earth is editing live production code? Highly unprofessional. Boo.

Sorry abut the issue earlier. The Techs have corrected the issue with the forum and links should work moving forward. If you're still encountering an issue please clear your cookies and cache and retry accessing the desired thread.

Cheers,
