    OK, that did not work !

    I have re instated CDN

    Im really surprised it had such a detrimental effect.

    At present i'm at a loss as to how to resolve this issue without making some major chnages to the server / site.

    I'm seeing many people with the same issue. The redirect number is hard coded into the browser - i think.

    Our site does not - should not - redirect more than 1 time.

    It seems there is a loop being initiated somewhere. but at present i cannot see where.

    I cannot reproduce the issue on any machine with any browser !

    It is really strange that you cannot see the problem locally.

    Maybe you have an earlier browser version?

    I guess the solution is to migrate to Vbulletin cloud or Vbulletin hosted.

    I understand that you use a MacOS system, right?

    Well, I found now an old Firefox, version 109.0 that works perfectly on Windows. But right now it did an update and needs me to restart. Will do that and report.

    OK, this reply is from a Firefox 190.01 version.

    Seems to work OK.

    But on this PC, Edge 109.0.1518.70 (Official build) (64-bit) does not work.

    Neither Chrome.

    Just downloaded Brave. Unbelievable!!! Brave also has a problem, even without been logged in!!! And also takes forever to load...

    Default Re: to many redirects

    Regarding the too many redirects issue. I have spent some time looking into this.

    First off, I cannot reproduce it. I am testing from outside of my own network, connecting via a 4g service provider, using Firefox and safari.

    I have traced the route of URL requests and see only 2 redirect

    Browsing to picbasic.co.uk you are redirected to picbasic.co.uk/forum
    and then when using the forum you are directed to picbasic.co.uk/forum/

    Browsing direct to picbasic.co.uk/forum will result in a redirect to picbasic.co.uk/forum/

    Browsing to piucbasic.co.uk/forum/

    results in no redirects.

    as far as I understand, there must be somewhere a redirect from within the forum to picbasic.co.uk - which will then result in the redirect loop

    I cannot find this at the moment - I will continue to look into this issue

    Have not Safari at the moment to test but Firefox works just fine here.

    Chrome, Brave and Edge at the moment are not working.

    Opera and Firefox do work.

    Do you think that advs may have created the problem? I think this started after the google ads. By this I do not imply to disable them, just to find what is causing it.

    Ioannis

    P.S. To complicate things today Brave works just fine at the moment.

    Hello

    No the ads cannot have any influence on this issue. The redirect issue happens before the site is opened,

    When trying different browsers it is very important to flush your browsing acche and remove all cookies. else the new installation will pick up from the old installation and the probelm will persist for some days before the new browser installation refreshes.

    Hope that makes sense

    Yes it does. But the very strange is that I installed Brave the other day and the first site I visited was picbasic.co.uk/forum, obviously without being logged in and the error came immediatly.

    Today it tested OK. Cannot explain that.

    Tried many times to completely clear everything from cache, cookies, history and temp files in vain.

    Yes till still same problem here in UK with Latest Chrome and Edge.
    Even with flushed cookies etc it refuses to work for days, then starts working like now and I'm posting this via chrome.

    I expect after I press submit for this post I will be locked out again with too many redirects to see any responses.

    I was hit by the "too many redirects" problem on Friday through till Saturday. Nothing would work - flushed cache, cleared cookies for picbasic.co.uk, tried incognito mode. Then on sunday, I got a 404 and the website checker isitdown or similar says the problem is at my end. Later in the day, the website was accessible once more incognito, so, I did log in.

    Weird!!

    I have removed a redirect from the base URL to the forum

    If you visit http://www.picbasic.co.uk you will need to manually click the link to go to
    http://www.picbasic.co.uk/forum

    Its VERY difficult for me to test the effects of changes I make to resolve the TOO MANY REDIRECTS ISSUE

    I cannot easily reproduce it.

    I would welcome feedback on the performance of the site today.

    Direct email is acceptable, if the site is unaccessible to you

    thank you

    No, it doesn't show a padlock. On chromium, it shows an exclamation in a triangle alert - not secure.

    On my end it shows padlock and confirms that the site is secure. Maybe Jerson you need once again to clear cache.

    No Redirect problem on

    Chrome
    Opera
    Edge
    Brave
    Firefox

    But I noticed that when logging in first time, it shows a message and I have to refresh the page so that I am still logged in.

    It maybe that it will take a couple of hours for the changes to propagate. All browsers should pick up the Time to Live for this site and automatically refresh.I will touch nothing for a full 24hrs to ensure that the changes have time to take effect.

    The message I get, the first time logging in, is this:

    Message from your administrator - Lester
    Invalid Redirect URL (https://www.picbasic.co.uk/forum/sea...e=vBForum_Post)

    But I am indeed logged in despite this message. A refresh of the page or clicking any link proves that.

    Beside the above, I think we are OK now. Hope others too are OK.

    A big thank you to the boss.

    If you exit the picbasic.co.uk page and clear your browser cache, Cookies and all site data. Close your browser. Re-Open and vist the site, you should see that the site is secure and running a certificate from a trusted CA ( cloudflare). The whole site is running behind cloudflare.

    Well, regarding pictures or other files, we now see this screen, that is not as easy as what used to be. And does not give you feedback if you did attached a file.

    You have to submit your post and then confirm that a file was attached. No VBcodes or anything else.
