    There is no calendar.php in vBulletin 5. The link should be https://mysite.com/calendar. You'll have to ask the third party site to update their link to the correct one.

    You shouldn't add .php to any of vBulletin 5's links. It will break them.

  • Error message when pulling up content from vbulletin calendar from link on third party site

    Hello

    I am linking to my vbulletin calendar from another site to drive traffic to it as it is useful to advertise CPD. The link I provide in the code from the other site is as follows

    <a href="https://www.mysite.com/calendar" class="menu-link">CPD Calendar</a>

    The link works in that if I click on the link the link https://www.mysite.com/calendar comes up but what also comes up is an error message saying

    error

    error_information_x

    The site appears to be having trouble displaying the content from the calendar itself, not the page.

    I went back to my links and found that to reach the blog page from the third party site I was using


    <a href="https://www.mysite.com/blog.php" class="menu-link">Blog</a>

    This link works consistently and causes no problems, the content on the blogs page just comes up. So I changed the calendar link to

    <a href="https://www.mysite.com/calendar.php" class="menu-link">CPD Calendar</a>

    This makes no difference - I keep getting the error message. The browser finds the link to the calendar but the content on the calendar will not display.

    If I keep shutting the page down and trying again eventually the browser gives up trying to find calendar.php and just gives me the https://mysite.com homepage but the link to blog.php works consistently every time.

    So the problem appears to be with the calendar or the content on the calendar.

    This looks like a bug but does anybody know if there is something else other than https://www.mysite.com/calendar.php that I can put in the link to get the content to come up consistently?

    It makes no difference whether I use https://www.mysite.com/calendar.php or https://mysite.com/calendar.php
