The domain name you had expired. Because of this, your forum is using the original address. What message does the members get when they try to log in?

P.S. Do you know that the Facebook Connect option is not working like it should be?

The address that is created when you create the forum does not expire. When you buy a domain name through Forumotion, it is only good for a year.

how come we didnt get a notice that the domain was going to expire? or did we? is our old name available again? enthusiasts rather than enthusiast? it was taken the last time so we had to use enthusiast ( this is where this whole problem has come from in fairness (
what is our next port of call? how can we get back to normal please )
we have a FB page, but you are saying that we can link it to the site, yes?
thanks for your help

Do you have Facebook Connect activated:
Administration Panel > Modules > Facebook Connect ?
It looks like you have it activated.

You should have notice a message in the administration panel about the expiration of the domain name. What was the original link to the forum?

Can you log into the forum yourself?

You did not answer my question about what message members get when they try to log in.

Use the Utilities to connect directly to your administration panel and remove the redirection for the domain name.

If you are the founder of the forum, you should see that option.

Hello,

OK so, first the message for the expiration of the domain name is on the Admin Panel.
Do you have access to the Admin Panel ?

The last visit of the founder was on december 2012. You need to find an agreement with him if you want to manage the forum.

You can't buy 2 different domain names for the same forum.

Which situation ?

You're telling first that your members can't log in to the forum which is wrong, and now you're asking if you can change the personalized domain name, but as you're not the founder, this is impossible.
