Bookmarked topics

PostPost by: MickG » Wed Dec 07, 2011 11:40 pm

I am trying to access some bookmarked topics but all I keep getting is the following message
Not Found
The requested URL /forums/topic23770.html was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Could anybody help me on this one :)

Thanks MickG

Not sure just yet. Could you post a couple of the links that your bookmarks point to? Typically, if you right click on the bookmark, you'll get a "Properties" option. This should have the URL of the bookmark. Maybe there is something that's broken there. Happy to look if you want to pass that along.

The second message just means that Jeff the webmaster hasn't configured the error page properly. Not very important.

Maybe your bookmark is a very old one and the forum has been re-programmed since, such that the word topic is replaced by the word post in the url.

This URL works:

Thanks for the replies,
The link to the post is shown as topic13457.html.
This relates to the repair of the headlamp vacuum switch and was posted on 23rd August 2006. I have more recent bookmarked topics that all return the same message. The most recent being November this year.
I have tried to change the word topic to post but still no luck :(
