    When I google 1911 addicts and click on the link , I type in my username & password and it says-Invalid Redirect URL (http://1911addicts.com/). That is all it says on the main page of this website , but i am logged in and just click on new posts. IDK doesn't make sense, never did it before.

    Thanks

    Interesting problem, Mike. Most people here have trouble logging off. :lol:

    I'm no computer expert, but it sounds like a cookie problem to me; I had a similar issue with other boards with logging in, and that's what it was.

    I do have it bookmarked.
    I am not joining the MAC addicts...:lol:
    I have so many bookmarks, it is just easier & faster when I am surfing the web to type in 1911 add.. in the search bar and click on 1911 addicts. The crazy thing is it doesn't say I am logged in, but I am because i usually don't log off. So, I click on today's post and it takes me there and it now shows i am logged in and I see my user name. The only time mine passwords get knocked off is when I run ccleaner or webroot cleaner to clean up the system, no big deal, just type in my username & password. Never had the problem before and haven't changed anything on my computer. It just started yesterday and I have since cleaned up the system, rebooted and it still does it.

    Be sure the click the Remember Me box when logging in. Resolves that issue

    Happens to me too. Everytime I get on my computer, I have to type in my username and password . I then get that invalid redirect message. Then I click on " forums "'and all is good. I click "remember me every time !
    I do not have this problem with my IPhone though.

    It is a known bug in the VB software. It is being addressed in the 4.1.7 upgrade. The software doesn't recognize the url to be "correct" with out the www. in front on it.

    it sounds like you typed it wrong at one time and thats what is now in the history so everytime you type it, it defaults to the time you typed it wrong, reason you get that message. I'd clear cookies, history, etc.., and then type the addy again.
