    A mild bug but nevertheless a bug.

    On the red bar, click "My Home", a small meny appears.
    Imediately after, on the red bar click "My Settings".
    Instead of an other small meny I get a error message with following contents:
    ---
    Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access /mygames/ on this server.
    Apache/2.0.54 (Unix) PHP/5.0.5 Server at www.redhotpawn.com Port 80
    ---

    Is this bug known?

    I cannot reproduce the error. Do you use IE Explorer? (I don't)

    Can't duplicate this in Firefox 1.5.01 on Win XP SP2.

    It may be an Explorer bug, rather than an RHP one. Of course, your antiquated OS may be the culprit.

    I'll try to reproduce it in Explorer (although I have XP SP 2).

    Nope. I cannot reproduce it using Explorer, either.

    Strange, very strange...

    My IE cannot (of course) make up this message for itself. It have to come from the RHP server.
    And if I am allowed even to try a directory that is secured, then the problem must be anywhere but in my own installation of OS and IE.

    But as I said, this is a minor bug, I can live with it.

    What you're getting is a perfectly normal error message when requesting a resource on the server that you don't have access to. To view your games, the address is: /mygames/mygames.php.

    The strange thing is, of course, that you are sent to /mygames/ when clicking My Home, My Settings after each other. It's strange because:

    1) None of those links are directed to /mygames/, and
    2) the URL /mygames/ doesn't exist anywhere within any page that I know of.

    So, why are you sent to that particular URL? I wouldn't say it's a problem with your choice of OS/browser. Which leaves... ???

    Is this problem occurring only when you're in a specific page?
