Do we block mobile access?
« on: July 16, 2017, 06:06:43 AM »
Got a friend who over the last year has been getting into wrestling.  Directed her here as an additional source of information for her questions and discussions.  She only has a cell phone and she can't access the site.  Keeps getting a forbidden message when trying to reach the forum.  There a problem with our forum and mobile phones now?

I didn't think so as I was pretty sure I've accessed from my phone before.  I'll get more info

Yea she still can't access it for some reason.  Exact error message she is getting is:

"Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /forum on this server"

I've had to go through the front page before to get to the forums due to this error.

I could try to get an IP from her but doubtful knowing her.

Yea I've sent her multiple links.  Direct to the forum, direct to account registration, and direct to the base site.  Only one she can access is a1-wrestling.com but then when she clicks the forum link it gives that error message again lol

I do have a fairly large .htaccess for blocking IPs due to when we were getting overloaded from Europe and Asia idiots trying to hack us. I'm not super great at .htaccess so I had one generated online by known country ranges - there's some default ranges in there so it could be possible that those have changed and she's fallen into one that's getting blocked. Only way I'd really know is to get an IP and then I could remove that range from the block list.

Trying to get one from her but she's not the most tech savvy and been ages since I've had to worry about looking that shit up on a phone XD
