I had that problem too. It wouldnt let me in the site.

My screen is also really big. So big that I have the scroll bar on the bottom of the screen so I can go side to side.


EDIT: I fixed the big screen problem. Not sure what caused it or how it happend.

I couldn't even open my internet explorer. I would click on IE and then that little window would pop up "save as, run, cancel" for some index.php thing. I have RF as my homepage,so that's probably why. I was able to get on early this morning,but not this afternoon until now.

Hopefully it was site related and not my computer.

it is site related, its not a virus, apache failed and it was being repaired this afternoon.

remember this is a new host, still working out the bugs and even when we choose this host we were not sure how well it would go.

Well Zach. I feel dumb now haha. For as long as I've worked on computers you'd think clearing the cookies would've been the first thing I tried. It works now so thanks for reminding me lol. I guess that explains why IE worked since I never use it haha.

on google chrome when i click on my 'r-f' link it downloads that index file. In IE when i click on the 'r-f' it goes right to the main forums page. (same url).

I dunno!! I'll try cookies.

yeah sorry about that guys. the new host pointed out the issue which caused it to crash, i fixed that then they fixed the apache service. After repairing the service this issue came up. But all should be fixed now.

Let me know if you have any other issues. We are trying to install and configure new things for the site but we seem to have issues when we make those changes.

It was a php glitch from the rotating pictures on the front page/index file, nothing to worry about, not a virus.
