    Cannot get to main forum page

    As of this morning I cannot access the main forum page. I have that page bookmarked in Firefox. When I click on my bookmark after about a half a minute a message pops up that says "I cannot connect to the database.". Am I the only one getting this message? I have had to google a forum topic to get on here. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

    Don

    I had the same problem with the Main Forums page. I just have the "Community Lounge" as my default stting and I have had no trouble going to that page from Explorer.

    Re: Cannot get to main forum page

    It's still messed up as of 1015 this morning, EDT. I've reported it to Admin by Googling different forums and functions - if you want to go to Seville, open a new tab in your browser and Google "cadillac forums past vehicle discussion" click on the first link that comes up in the Google site. That takes you to the general forum from where you can go through all the past vehicle sub-forums but you cannot use the "Cadillac Forums"tab to go elsewhere - you must leave the past vehicles tab there, open a new tab, and Google "cadillac forums general Discussion". Click on that and you get to the Lounge, Engines, Item Specific, etc. forums. To go back to Seville, you click the browser tab, not the site tabs. PITA.

    The problem appears to be restricted to computers - laptops and PC's - other members using phones and tablet apps don't seem to have the problem.

    EDIT at 1305 EDT - Just received a PM from one of our Administrators - he's having the same problems, so now it moves to higher authority.

    Re: Cannot get to main forum page

    I have had it happen a couple times in the past couple days.

    Easy way to bypass it and get through is use a net search like Cadillac Forums then followed by whatever section you are trying to browse like Cadillac Forums Lounge and it will show up on the net search and that link will allow you in to that section

    I have been using the "Cadillac Model Discussions"(in red letters) at the bottom of the header to get everywhere except lounge.

    Re: Cannot get to main forum page

    Still down at 1120 EDT 05/20

    Here are links to some of the most used forums for some members - not all. You can get to your forum by Googling something like "cadillac forums current vehicles" and finding the link that way. You can save these links to "Unsorted Bookmarks" in Firefox. Hopefully, the Admin people in the sky will get to the problem sometime today.

    There are several in-site and gmail messages, as well as reported and dedicated posts, sent to the Admins. No luck as of 1330 EDT.
