    Anyone else getting this? When selecting an item from the Blogs dropdown menu, I sometimes get directed to a 404 Error page. If noone else is getting it, I will take a look at my router, etc.

    Tom, when did this occur? Every once in a while, we are having server issues. They are usually very transient. The last occurrence was at 6:42AM today. Was that when you had the problem?

    Hi Amin,

    It's sporadic. Last time was this morning around 9:30 EDT (plus or minus an hour!). It could be a cache issue on my end...especially if I'm the only one experiencing this.

    Not sure. I haven't spent as much time on Blogs as others have. Anyone else experiencing this??

    I've been tracking the blogs on every visit... no problems here.

    Cheers

    Just happened again - 11:19 EDT. I closed Safari, cleared Browser Caches and it went away. Must be something on my end. :confused:

    That's frustrating Tom. I'm sorry for you especially because I know how much you all enjoy it in there and keeping thinking of joining you. I hope you can get some more suggestions sooner, rather than later.

    I'm going to go look around in there via Safari and then Firefox... I'm on a MacBook and still on Leopard for a day or two.

    Figured it out...

    Amin,

    I just discovered that the links to the Blogs are wrong when you start from Gallery. See if you can reproduce it:

    Click on the Gallery Tab (upper right area of screen)
    Now click on Blogs (NOT upper right, rather use the one third from left)

    These links yield the 404 error.

    You're right! I guess most people must be using the upper right tab. I'll see if I can fix that, but it might take a while. Thanks!

    I'm glad this is cleared up. Now at least I know what to do!

    Thanks for all your efforts to make this the best community it can be!
