Just a heads up to the admins, http://www.mathhelpboards.com/mhb-pages/potw returns "Page not found".
Hi Bacterius, :)

Thanks for making a thread about this, I too have this problem. But if you want to read the POTW problems you can go to the homepage and click on sub-forums under the "Problem of the Week" category. The link you mentioned is the one that corresponds to the P.O.T.W. tab in the main navigation bar. Hopefully the admins will resolve the issue soon. :)

Ah, yes, those links do work, thanks! I wasn't trying to submit anything, though, just reporting the issue.

Just note for a temp solution:

Old target for POTW tab: mhb-pages/potw.

Old Tab Script: potw

New target for POTW tab: http://www.mathhelpboards.com/forum/#problem-week

New Tab Script: *blank*

This at least sends you to the POTW forum now.

However, as I recall, the POTW tab is supposed to send you to a page where you can submit problems or solutions.

This is unfortunately related to the changes I made with regard to the multiple page navigation problem. If I can't fix the custom POTW page and the MHB Widget pages which are also broken then we can just change the setup of these pages to something else. The navigation problem takes priority in the context of these two problems. I'll see what I can do though. :)

I've found a temporary solution to this: disabling the rewrite rules for that page. The URL for it is now http://www.mathhelpboards.com/view.php?pg=potw and that one works, however it's quite ugly. I need to figure out how to make a rewrite rule that can make that URL display like we used to have it without causing the same issues it did. Will try to figure it out and report back...
