This is a weird one. In the past week or two my iPad and iPhone have trouble bringing up the customized (logged-in) BGG page. Instead Safari complains "can't find URL '/'". This also happens almost every time I click the "BGG guy" logo icon. At least every other time I click the logo, or a bookmark to "http://boardgamegeek.com", that message about missing "/" shows up instead. I've deleted and re-entered the bookmark. It doesn't matter if I put "www" in the URL or not.
The only thing I can do to refresh BGG is just to keep hammering on the URL, bookmark, or logo until it "takes". Eventually it will work, but I haven't found any clues to the problem yet. This is the only website that I've seen this happen.
Another year, another support drive, another silly Over text
Which way to the nearest cliff?
I used to have problems with having to try to load pages 2-3 times to get them to take on occasion. I also had problems with how the ads displayed as well. Since I have had ad block activated this year I haven't had any issues. How ever BGG serves ads doesn't apparently work well with Safari.
I also have not upgraded to v5 of iOS and am using an iPad 1 if that helps.
Hit home + power quickly to take a screenshot then upload so we can see
When I have such issues on my computer I clean out the temporary internet files.
Try the following,
1. Ensure that Safari is not running.
2. Open up the Settings app.
3. Scroll down to the Safari link & open it.
4. Scroll to the bottom & press the "Clear Cache" & "Clear History" links. It's your call as to whether you go with "Clear Cookies".
5. Exit the Settings app.
6. Start up Safari & see if it's working.
Hopefully this is helpful.
