My computer settings are messed up, can someone help please?
I can click any link in the main forum and it will open but if I try to click any links inside the thread it just takes me back to the main forum or does nothing at all.

Another thing that's weird is that as soon as I click to vote on the thread it doesn't count the vote and sends me back to the main forum.

Also, outside links inside the thread won't work for me. It puts the GLP address before the outside link address and does nothing.

Can someone tell me what's wrong please?

Explorer is even worse. Takes me to a 404 page if I click on any outside links in the thread.

Voting does the same thing, takes me back to the main forum.

Mods? Have you heard of this happening before?

Also when I post, it takes me to the top of the page instead of to the location of the post in the thread.

Check your internet options, see if there's any proxy listed in there, or if you are using a proxy that could be a problem. When you hover over a hyperlink what does it say the URL is? Is the URL the same page you end up going to when you click the URL?

The tabs open fine, it just puts a GLP address before the link address and just sits there.

In that case try using IE to see if it does the same thing. Then at least you'll know if it's the browser or your IP stack (the global network settings)

Tried that and it was turned on but no IP was there. Switched it back to no prox, still the same.
