The forum link in the community section of the gameroom isn't working for me just takes me to the gameroom login

Yep, it's been broken for me since the change made earlier this year (http://arimaa.com/arimaa/forum/cgi/YaBB.cgi?board=siteIssues;action=display;num=1365283035).

I was having this problem and noticed that for some reason, the URL is for the forum login page but the gameroom login page loads.  If I hit reload in the browser then I get the proper forum login and am successful.

I assume there is something in the scripting or something happens too fast the first time, but a full reload seems to work.

I was coming to post about the same issue.

I have to use the 'forum' link on the main page which is buried within some text in a section near the bottom.

Every other forum link just takes me to the game room via a login.

And it's happening again, to help narrow down the problem it seemed to have happened after following a link to a forum post from a comment on a game

It worked for me fine on PC's, but from Iphone/ Ipad I have had problems with it recently. Now the problems disappeared. I don't know what solved them.

I'm using firefox and the only way it works for me is after using the forum login which sends me to the game room. I can then do a page refresh in the browser which loads the forum.

Or more commonly I just use my old direct link to the forum http://arimaa.com/arimaa/forum/cgi/YaBB.cgi

Today I got tired of clicking the gameroom forum link and getting a new gameroom page instead of the forums (at the same time logging me out of my original gameroom page). So I hacked together a quick greasemonkey/tampermonkey script to rewrite the site forum links as direct links to the forum. In case anyone else would like to use it here it is:


Code:
// ==UserScript==
// @name Arimaa forum link rewrite
// @namespace Arimaa
// @description Change arimaa forum links to direct links
// @include http://arimaa.com/*
// @exclude http://arimaa.com/arimaa/forum/*
// @version 1
// @grant none
// ==/UserScript==

var links = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
for (var i=0; i < links.length; i++) {
if (/.*forumLogin.cgi$/.test(links[i].href)) {
links[i].href = "http://arimaa.com/arimaa/forum/cgi/YaBB.cgi";
}
}
