Since I can’t post this in the correct section, I’ll post it here.

It was mentioned that some users cannot view certain parts of the forums. Let’s see which sections people are having trouble with.

I cannot view the following sections.

I talked about this today with my son. I think the fix will be to use a different forum software – which will hopefully happen soon.

I have the same problem, can’t view those same 3 forums (trade chat, 2012 tour and website issues). I’d say it’s probably been more than a year since they have worked for me too.

How about trying:
-Create a new forum
-Copy the contents of the old forum into the new one
-See if people can access the new one

I’d suggest trying it on the smallest forum (Website Issues?)

Yep, those are the three I cannot access either.

I have to work with my son on this and he’s hard to pin down. He moved from overseas in the last year, started a new career, and started a family, so it only gets more difficult. But it looks like things have settled down to the point where he’ll finally be able to start working on the site again.

Unlike other Van Halen sites that threaten to shut down if members don’t contribute – I pay for all the costs for this site out of my pocket. And no – I didn’t just say that to solicit contributions. No one will ever have to help pay for the site.

So just be patient and work with me and hopefully things will improve sooner rather than later.

I couldn’t view them either just lurking, but once I logged in they work fine.

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

So the problem(s) go away once you are logged in?

Not for me. I just tried the forums listed above and got the “Oh bother!” message. To be honest, I only use the Topics tab which shows the recently posted threads. That’s always been fine for me, but I can obviously see the need for those other forums to be visible.

Not for me either, they don’t work whether I’m logged in or not. And anything posted in those three forums doesn’t show up on the Topics tab either.
