Hi Bob

The problem you are having is due to the original web site being written using "frames" thats why you only see the main top level web site address of http://www.pulse-jets.com/ rather than what you are expecting to see of http://www.pulse-jets.com/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4813 for this post.

The simple solution is to navigate to the real forum address directly rather than go through the first page of the web site so go to http://www.pulse-jets.com/phpbb3/index.php and bookmark it in your browser.

That should fix the problem
