    The following entries in the HELP menu do not connect to the links as they should. Are they implemented yet?

    Help / Members Area
    Help / Online Forum
    Help / Go to / Port Explorer Website
    Help / Go to / DiamondCS Website

    Thanks.

    Hi Godzillex, I assume you are talking about the Help drop down menu & not the help file itself?
    If you are using the trial version I believe they will not be available, they definately do work in the full version.

    Hi Pilli,

    Yes it is the drop down menu that I'm having this issue with.
    Earlier, I had downloaded the full version from the member's area, and went through the entire process of registration without any problems. Also, my name does show up both in the Help/About menu, and the title of the screen as the registered user.

    Still baffled !

    Hmmmmmmmm i'm just trying now myself, and when pressing the FORUM i get in the Wildersforum archives, while it used to end in this forum.
    Guess with the recent Wilderssecurity forum rebuild that has changed! Thanks for mentioning it.
    Before it was absolutely getting to this forum via the redrection you see.

    The membersarea brings me to the right place, so do all the other options.

    Not sure if we can do something with our HOSTS file to get here anyway, as we can't expect the forum to rebuild that part, but DiamondCS might be able to change the redirection.

    Why you don't get to the other places in the right way i don't know; is there anything in your HOSTS file? Where do you get when you use those options?

    Hello Jooske,

    I found out exactly what the problem was. It turns out that Internet Explorer (IE) had to be set as the default browser for it to work out (since I also use Opera). All I had to do was to fire up the IE, go to the TOOLS pulldown menu, select INTERNET OPTIONS, and click on PROGRAMS, and finally click on the "Internet Expolorer should check to see whether it is the default browser". After that, everything worked out nicely. What's surprising me is the need for IE to be the default browser!

    But when clicking the FORUM, where did it bring you?

    Exactly, that's what happens for me too; this is since this WildersForum was rebuild on this new software, so the re-direction should be changed. I'll inform the webmaster there. Thanks again!
