  • Invalid Page URL


    When setting up my forum, I run in to a problem when viewing categories. I receive the following error message, "Invalid Page URL. If this is an error and the page should exist, please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message."

    You can see examples here:

    You can click on any forum category, and the error pops up, as seen here:

    I'm not what causes this issue, or even how to fix it. Also, when I'm logged in under administrator account and try and click on the 'edit site' toggle button while on one of these 'invalid Page URL" errors, I'm unable to.

    I believe my MySQL version is 5.5.37-cll

    PHP is 5.4.26

    No AddOns are installed, and pretty much just using the default theme.

    Please let me know what other information you may need, or what I may be able to do to help resolve this issue.

    Thank you.

    All of your urls {Forums, Blogs, Articles} come up fine on my end. Empty the cache in your web browser and try again.

      Hi Replicant,

      Thanks for the response. Are you just looking at the root forum ,or are you clicking on the actual categories? It's when you click on the forums themselves that the page gives an error. I cleared my browser cache, error still persists.

        If gives an "Invalid Page URL" when you try to click on any category.

          Did you modify the .htaccess file?

            You have a directory called /forum in your root. That is what is causing the issue. You need to remove that. You should ONLY have vB5 files in your vB5 directory.

              The subdomain was the issue, thank you Lynne. It's been fixed.
