For the past few days, any time I click the chat here on the forum pages, it redirects me to the beginner violins page. 

 

Yeah, I know, we can just go to fiddletalk.chatango.com

...but new folks are less likely to do that, so I'd wonder if we may be missing some new people? 

Anyway, figured I'd mention it in the forum to find out what's up.  Not sure if Pierre is aware of it or not, since this is one of his busy times of year.

Yup, same thing happens for me, too, Daniel. I wouldn't have noticed it, if you hadn't mentioned it, as I always have the chat open in a separate tab.

I found that out too today.

It happened after I added that Beginner Violins link above the chat.
This is a bug and I'll take care of it but by the same token, I would rather people use the chat right here on Fiddlerman.com instead of going to the chatango.com database.

I am having this problem with Firefox.  It works on chrome.

Sorry guys. The chat works for me on Firefox but if I click on the chatango link it brings me to Fiddlershop. :-)
Not intentional though.

Ha!  I just noticed that!  ......and forgot about joining the chat while drooling over potential new violins! LOL  Well played, sir!

I'm still getting bounced to the fiddlershop page any time I click anywhere in the chatroom box on the forum page.  I've cleared cookies, cache and etc.  So colour me: puzzled.  LOL 

Probably not a huge issue, since only about one out of 4 or 5 people on the internet use firefox.  Internet explorer is still the big kahuna with about 7 out of 10 people using it (even most Mac users).  Safari, Chrome, Opera and all the others put together account for maybe 1 visitor out of 10.  Internet Explorer compatibility is what will count for most potential customers, and it sounds like it's working fine on IE.

My current work-around has been to put a tab on my favorites bar for the chatango.com "fiddletalk" chat.

Well, I can click on other links on the chat but not the FIDDLE CHAT title. There is a bug in the Widgets code but I have not been able to figure it out. There was no problem when I had the donation tab there.
