Photo Comp Entry - Page Not Found

Postby north-north-west » Fri 13 Aug, 2021 8:17 pm

So, finally getting around to bunging in some stuff for the July Comp, and the link seems to be busted. Keep getting a PAGE NOT FOUND note. Has anyone else had trouble or is it just a me thing?

Haven't done mine yet but initial links seem OK. At what point is it happening; when you submit the entry?

The competition entry link in the pink bit at the top of the Photo Competition page.

Thanks NNW.
Given my track record it is very possible I have stuffed something up here -- sorry.
But I am not able to see the problem at my end.
If I click on "Photo Comp" (top right in the header) I can see the 4 comps, and if I click on them then seems to work.

I am not sure what the pink bit is sorry. :(

If you are getting a white page saying 'Page not found' then it is because there is a URL I mapped to the wrong server.
If you can copy the link of that page into here (or pm, or email me) then I can hopefully work out what is going on and fix it.

thanks -- sorry again for the hassle. I did test the comp system when I migrated everything, but clearly I missed something.

OK, it works like this:

Go to Board Index - no problems.

Click on Photo Competitions in the Photography section - no problems. The competition Index page comes up (https://bushwalk.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=22)
In the Desktop version, near the top there's a pink backed block with red writing that includes a link called 'Photo Competition entry page'. When I click on that, I get a white page with the updated Bushwalk.com branding and 'page not found'. Browser address bar just shows https://bushwalk.com/photocomp

Might still be some issues.
After submitting an entry, click the Photo Comp link (top of page RHS). You get a "page not found" error related to the new site configuration.
Workaround - use the back button instead of the link, then select the next category you wish to enter.
