bug: dead menu link

Under the 'your notifications' menu, the link to 'likes received' is broken.



It wants to link to this URL:

http://www.mazda6club.com/member.php...likes_received

but that results in a members.php 404/not found error.

That's strange.

Use this link instead: http://forum.mazda6club.com/members/...likes_received Works for me.

The way to get to that link is to go to your profile page and click the link in the "Mini Statistics" section in the top right.

Yeah, it's not a new issue - I've seen it before but either lost track of how I ended up at the dead link or forgot later to file the bug report.

Thanks. I did find that mini statistics box after digging around a bit. The link there is probably what the dropdown menu should be using.

Part of the reason this bug may be hard to find is that if you have no unread notifications, you have no notifications dropdown menu. That is, because I viewed the "Likes", I have no more pending notifications - so the dropdown menu isn't visible.

Try clearing your cache and cookies to troubleshoot the error without any hidden cookies running in the background.

Let me know if it works.

Lee,

Lee,
I'd be happy to do that. Just need to compose a post awesome enough for someone to click 'Like' so that I get the menu back

I would, but I've not yet "Liked" anything on here and plan to keep it that way because old man syndrome (stubborn).

Mayhaps someone else can "like" your post. Free bump.

Lee,
Clearing cache/cookies didn't do anything - except log me out (which is expected behavior).

It did however make me notice something

When I'm here http://forum.mazda6club.com, the link in the dropdown menu looks correct. That is, it looks like it will take me to the same URL as the route Byakuya would have me take to get to the 'New Likes Received' page.

However, when I'm at http://forum.mazda6club.com and I click on 'Active Topics' (the place I normally go), the URL for the Active Topics page is

Mazda 6 Forums : Mazda 6 Forum / Mazda Atenza Forum - Active Topics

This is where the Your Notifications > New Likes Received changes to a broken link.
