    Site link to main forums page is dead

    This morning it appears that the "cadillacforums.com" link is dead. Firefox shows the message "I cannot connect to the database". BUT, if I go to Google something like "cadillac forums past vehicle discussion" it opens the forum and I'm already signed in. Same procedure holds for any forum that I know the name of - as here in Help Desk - the only way to get here is through a Google search link. If I click the "Cadillac Forums" tab in the upper left it searches for 10 - 15 seconds, then up comes "I cannot connect to the database".

    Ranger called by landline and he has the same problem.

    Re: Site link to main page is dead

    I can't get to the Staff forums in order to report info on this - same problem - "cannot connect ......." . I Reported these posts using the little triangle with the ! in it and hopefully they'll go to the Admin site for the CF owner's administrators to work on. Thanks for the comeback. "Stuff happens".

    p.s. - I got into my profile through the "Settings" tab.

    1850 EDT - the site is still messed up big time. Looks like most of the primary and internal redirects are locked or missing.

    1015 today - still have big problems - only way to use a forum is to Google it, opening more and more tabs for specific forums.

    ...ditto...

    ...the problem still exists...

    ...there is no way to get/go directly from the main page to enter the "main forum"/overview (or using the link for the main forum) ---> some *.php-links are still dead...like "www.cadillacforums.com/forums/forum.php"
    ...or the "member.php?..."
    ...just saved some links as favorite now (to some of the specific forums)...
    ...but that's a little... ...

    I use a Google search to get in. Then I click the New Posts tab at the top right and click on the forum I am looking for. Hopefully this gets fixed quick
