    Update for Y'all...

    After detailed Investigations - I'm gonna be making a call to GoDaddy (Our Registrar) about Our Nameservers RE:Settings.

    I'm pretty sure I can resolve Our IRL Issues by resetting Our DNS Nameservers to "Default" and then adding the Heavenforum.org Alias as a CNAME entry.



    That said - More to follow tomorrow...

    This is too technical for me to understand but I admire your persistence in making things go right and wish you success in your enterprise Mercuriel.

    Ditto but am grateful that you know how to go about this as I'm clueless when it comes to most of this tech stuff. Cow

    OK Here is the Deal...

    There are two ways that this can be handled.

    - One is as detailed above where I set the Our DNS Name Servers' Address to the GoDaddy Default DNS Name Servers' Address. This would be instead of using Our Custom Parked Domain Name DNS setup VIA the Forumotion Name Servers as It was previously configured. The Pros of this decision are that It would reset everything supposedly and put Us back to right but the cons are that I can only do this with the IP of the Forum and some other information that is not ATM forthcoming...

    - Two is that I can just forward Our Domain Name " http://www.themistsofavalon.net " to Our Forum Motion URL " http://mistsofavalon.heavenforum.org " URL and be done with It.

    Pish Posh Done By Gosh...

    Can't find the server on the link above Mercuriel. It doesn't forward it to heaven forum and I can't access the forum with the above link.

    Hmmm - Its working fine on My end now and has almost immediately since I set the change into effect...

    Refresh Your Cache and if that does not fix It - You might need to do a reboot and then - even THEN - You might need to wait for 8 Hours or so until the DNS Name Servers Worldwide Update themselves.

    That said - I DO NOT think that is the case with Your situation Carol. I think You need to refresh Your Cache but as You have told Me before You don't like to do that. My reply to that is ? I got nothing (JK'ing). Give It a bit for the changes to hit Your side of the World I guess cause It IS working for Me...

    This is a new computer and I still don't have it working. It says Safari can't find the server for that link.

    On Firefox I landed a few times on Heaven forum while clicking on your link Mercuriel.
    Then I cleared the cache and now I land on forum motion page saying the Mists avalon net does'nt exist.
    I even rebooted my computer and nothing changes.

    On Safari : same

    On Chrome: while clicking on Net forum I land on Heaven forum. Is this what it is supposed to do ?

    Love from me
    mudra

    PS: after rebooting my computer now Chrome also leads me to the forum motion page. pale

    I tried to access the forum from my cell phone and got the weirdest link to it from 2015. It went to www.mistsofavalon.catsborad.com. Would not let me link to the site and this is on an apple Iphone4. Odd. What's going on here.

    It's not heavenforum anymore. Yikes!

    I have now returned to GoDaddy and edited Our Forward Address to reflect Forumotion's UNANNOUNCED URL Change.

    Our Personalized URL http://www.themistsofavalon.net will now forward to http://mistsofavalon.catsboard.com/forum...

    confused

    Its done but I sure don't know why They did It.

    Yesterday my auto log in wasn't working.   Today  the Icon that I normally click onto to get into the site was gone.....and I had to go back to back an old password.  No idea where its coming from or why but someone doesn't like our site or maybe it's just me.

    It's not you Bob. We've been having problems with Google and other witchy controllers this past year when since you first got lost to us. Traffic dropped about 50% and we were slowly climbing back up to where we usually were when we got hit again. So annoying. Someday, as a free speech forum, this site may attract thousands. Meanwhile, I've been trying to stay under the radar until this freedom of speech mess gets cleared up. Soon, I hope. And I hope the hammer comes down on those who have been harassing the conservative right big league.

    I can't believe that our new forum url's header is catsboard. I loved our heavensforum url and want it back.

    Heavensforum was our back door into our forum. Otherwise we would have been locked out the first time they zinged us.

    Just an FYI for Ya'll - We had just over a thousand Visitors last Month (February)...

    Not bad considering the recent Issues...

    We'll get back up to speed - Have no doubt of that.

    That is hysterical mudra. Too bad she took most of her cats with her. However, it looks like Mercuriel managed to discover one scooting around in a slipper. Too funny.

    Thanks for the update Mecurial.  Nice to know folks still managed to find us irrespective of the url problems.  cheers

    One day, perhaps soon, that number will be in the thousands.
