    Are you sure it wasn't due to the recent outage due to the DNS change?

    I would think so - I had to wait a bit but all my links are now resolving OK.

    1. it was definitely not the reason it didnt work (several times reportedly) for the first person
    2. not sure when they clicked, but second person emailed me 39 minutes ago - was that during outage?

    so might be cause for second person, but not first.

    but that means only one person, rather than two, which is what prompted my post.
     
  7. DNS can from 24 to 48 hours for some to resolve after changes. So it was about the dns change.

    Sometimes a good browser shutdown and restart - clearing the cache - helps. Just a suggestion. I am by no means an expert.

    Thanks for the information Jaime! Did not know that. I use it but do not understand it :)

    again, definitely not the first person. it was a week ago or longer that they first reported a link not working.

    but again, one person doesnt seem as "bad?" as two people to me, for whatever reason.

    Do you still have the link you sent to the first person, so that we could try it?
     
  12. Do you have the link that does not work?

    seriously guys? i have 12K posts on FT.

    the link worked for me, and not for them. while it was clickable, bottom line since only one person, perhaps there is some kind of human error or something.

    i will only post again if i hear about issues from an "actual" second person.
