Hi guys

I don't know why but when I use the url as advised by dpcprints for referring to my prints (//The Four Bears.dpcprints.com) it doesn't work. I have entered the %20 like so: //The%20Four%20Bears.dpcprints.com but doesn't help.

In IE it just says it can't find the page, in Firefox it goes to the main DPC page and not my page.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong please?

Hang on, it was to do with the proxy server at work. Sorry!

That said, it still doesn't work with Firefox, only IE.

Weird. In firefox it works as long as the username is one name, eg. //heida.dpcprints.com but not for me with the spaces, eg. //The%20Four%20Bears.dpcprints.com

My Prints

Use the quote thread and copy the top link. Just make sure you erase my username and the backslash quote at the end.

Yeah, that's work but wouldn't do the referral mate.

I want to know who is referred from the forum or whatever and for that you need the URL in the format I showed.

As I said, works in IE but not in Firefox for some reason.

You may be exceeding some type of string length limit (The%20Four%20Bears.dpcprints.com) is 33 characters.

I'd suggest sending in a Contact form to Drew and Langdon so they can look into it.

I was having that problem in the beginning when my user name was "franziska lang" with a space. I believe it just can't handle spaces, so I ended up asking D&L to change my user name ;)
