Please Critique my Forum Design
Is there a register link on the forum home page?
lol nope. thats exactly why critiques are important. thanks.
ill do that now.
edit: done. yeah they could signup at the WP homepage, but yeah the forum didnt have a link to register. :p
Nice look but you need to look into your server configuration as the bbPress pages are being served with 404 error code instead of 200 (even though they display).
Something might be wrong with your htaccess
Same here. Is this the 404/200 problem?
Also, this explanation from Sam:
wat bbPress pages? i dont see where the errors are?
i dont get where the errors are :- http://www.picbi.com/forum , am I think im missing something ?
If you do a
curl -I http://example.com/from the command line on a Linux or Mac machine, or check the response headers with Firebug or the Web Developer Toolbar (both Firefox add-ons) you will see the response header is a 404, but the page still loads. This has something to do with WordPress, I think.
I tried to load a page on your forum just now, to show you the header output, but I keep getting a “page load error.”
[~]$ curl -I http://www.picbi.com/forum/

The “404 Not Found” should be a “200 OK”.
hmmm never knew about this, do you think it might have to do with permalinks or something… i really dont have a clue how to fix this..
i would appreciate any help on this thanks. would it be safe to show you the content of my .htaccess file , if the problem lies there?
I think this fix will take care of it: please confirm.
