As I can't post anything on the forums at I'll do it in here.... It looks like there is a serious problem with the forums, replying or adding a new post is impossible, there is a 'forum not selected' error!

Someone changed .htacess to redirect to but forgot to edit mainfile.php to use the new url. This was causing posts to fail. It should not work correctly. Thanks!

I was adding some security stuff to .htaccess recommended by Culex, and things got messed up a little.

Thanks Trabis for fixing it.
