So as of today when I click on the 'forum' button to go back to the list of all the various forum from whatever post I'm reading I get redirected to Evolution Hosting -- so instead I have to click on the permies logo and go through the main page every time instead. Anyone else experiencing the minor inconvenience of a disrupted routine and an additional click?

So yeah both the permies and the forums buttons up top are doing this the subforum buttons like >>growies and >>hugleculture work the same as always. Just thought I'd give ya the heads up - I can relearn my ways if I'm the only one getting this error - navigation is still possible just not using my established routine

When I click the forums hyperlink, it works just as it's supposed to for me, too. No evolution hosting weirdness.

You mean the one like at the top of my attachment?
If I click that, it takes me to the list of fora - as it should.

Can you force refresh (Ctrl + F5 in Firefox) the forum page(s) to see if that fixes it?

Thats a novel Idea. I just tried it and the force refresh works just fine - clicking the button still get me booted

Its just me? This is so weird. I never should have mentioned the transdimentional silicon based super beings in that 'science fiction' thread....

I'm getting redirected to: http://www.evolutionhosting.com/undefined.jsp?server=imhotep.ejip.net&ipAddress=64.78.153.15. I follow the RSS feed of the forums I want to follow--useing feedly.com--and click on the topics I want to follow. When I typed permies.com in the address bar and I got to the site, but when I clicked on the forum I'd get the redirect. That's what happens on Firefox anyway. I got here via a google search--evlutionhosting.com hijack permies.com--using Chrome. I went back to Firefox and tried to refresh as Jaikiran suggested, but got the redirect anyway. Any other ideas?

Permies.com and richsoil.com got moved to a new server a couple of days ago. Usually, when making this sort of move, the idea is to set the DNS cache timer to something really short, like 5 minutes. But I think somebody forgot that step and the timer was set to something like 48 hours. So some people are getting wonky stuff.

Is it still broken?

I had the problem an hour ago, but I cleared my cache, ran a virus scan, did a disk cleanup, restarted Firefox, and now it seems to work like normal.

Firefox for Windows 7? It worked ok on my phone and in chrome, but Firefox sent me to evolution. I haven't tried it today.

It's probably stale DNS entries. Whoever did the move forgot to set a low TTL on the DNS records a day or two ahead of time, and so when the switch happened lots of people had cached DNS entries pointing to the old server until those caches expired and the new records were fetched.

Back to normal!
