confused
I am using Geeklog 1.3.9sr1, Apache2, PHP5 and MySQL.

I have installed the Forum Plugin. When I View Forums and double click on the Forum Name I am taken to a page whcih has a URL ending in index.php?forum=1 (for example) and it cannot find the page. If I use the back button in the browser I then get to the forum. If I go to the forum using the drop down list it correctly goes to the forum (with a URL ending in index.php without the ?forum=1).

Can someone help me to resolve the problem?

Many thanks
Martin Fuggle

have you created 1 catagory and 1 Forum from the forum admin menu?

Yes - I have a number of categories each containing several forums (or should that be fora?). One of the forums contains a single post and I get the same behaviour on that.

Currently it's a bit of a mystery.

seems odd. I would only guess that it has something to do with the header.thtml in your theme. That is where the menu items are created from site variables. You could try hand coding in the forum link (and other plugins) and remove the {menu_plg_elements} from the header.thtml.
