    Issues with the New Post button

    Is it just my computer or do other people have the same problem?

    When I click the New Post button It sends me to a yahoo search page:

    Page not found Yahoo Error Handler



    Admin help please. Not sure if its the forum or operator error.

    I don't see any reason why or how the forum could be doing that. Not sure what could be causing this on your end.

    If anybody else has this issue feel free to chime in.

    Wish I could help. In the past when I had problems on this site it was a result of the browser being used. When a new browser was used the problem disappeared. It might be worth a chance.

    Browsers can be funky.

    I have been pushing the New Posts button for a few years now, almost every day. Just the last week or so its been sending me there.

    I haven't done anything different, so im not sure If there is anything I can do to fix it.

    I'ts frustrating, I cant see what anyone is talking about right now, unless I look through all the forums........

    Someone smarter than me needs to help

    My first thought was that it was operator error... Thats why it took me a week to mention anything. I thought i'd figure it out, Or it would fix itself. But I haven't seen any conversations for the last week. I Need some help, cant figure it out.

    Try it from another computer.
    I'll bet it works OK
    Then you should do a complete virus & malware scan
    Download & use Malwarebytes & Superantispyware
    Remove all unnecessary toolbars using your Add/Remove programs in the control panel
    If that doesn't help. call your local PC nerd to assist you

    Ok I know this is silly but instead of clicking New Posts, have you tried clicking What's new?

    Other then that, try Spin's suggestion if you can. He's the computer wiz, I know just enough to keep my running ok.

    Hey wait..that's my line..the insomnia part.

    Just giving you a hard time there PJ.

    I use windows an there are certainly times I want to beat it with a BFH. I think I'd feel the same with an Apple OS, maybe not with Linux.

    If I click "whats New" It goes here also: Page not found Yahoo Error Handler

    It works fine from my phone. I don't have access to another computer, but I imagine it would work fine. Ill try a virus scan

    Oddly, I have never even seen a New Posts button until now. I've been using the What's New. What's the difference?

    I had to go up and look for one to see what you guys were talking about and now I see that they are right next to each other. That just shows how unlikely I am to explore and try new things. Now I'm hovering the cursor over it and can't bring myself to click!! What if it is much better than the other one? What if it takes to the same Yahoo page with Parker and then somehow know something is dreadfully wrong with my computer? What if???

    Ok, I'm not clicking it and I'm going to go plant cotton now. See you guys later.

    It's just a yahoo search engine result. Its saying that the code, that is supposed to send me to "whats new," is spelled wrong. It is yahoo search engine giving me other suggestions cause it thinks I spelt it wrong.

    This is what it says at the top of the yahoo page:
    The requested URL "http://www.scrapmetalforum.com/search.php?hsimp=yhse-001" cannot be found or is not available. Please check the spelling or try again later.

    Then below that it gives me search suggestions that are related to scrap metal forum.

    Hope this helps someone help me.

    Virus scan did nothing. It is only this website, and only when I click "whats new"

    Everything else works on this forum and on every other site I visit.

    Weird. Maybe you upset the forum gods somehow with that neat an orderly shop of yours.

    Hope you can figure it out soon.
