Charlie Jones pointed out a problem with the forum, and it involves the ampersand in the path to the script (the "B&B" part). The ampersand causes some minor problems now, but may cause even larger ones in the future. I don't have an elegant solution to this one (sorry!)

If you link to "http://www.messing-about.com/B&B" that will continue to work. It will redirect to the longer URL seamlessly.

If you link to "http://www.messing-about.com/B&B/webbbs_config.pl" your link will not work when I make the change. If you "bookmarked" the forum from the index page, your link will look like that. You can edit the link to look like the top example right now, or wait until you can't connect and change that ampersand to the word "and" as shown:


I will make the change on Saturday (I'm hoping a couple of days will be enough warning for everyone).

Graham, the link from the B&B Yacht Designs web page is OK and doesn't need to be changed.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
