Having an issue

Ok so yesterday I created a forum on proboards. I have a godaddy domain.

I set the domain to forward and mask the proboard address.

I woke up this morning and I couldnt get into my admin control board or on my test account, because the log in button on proboard directed me to a page that said

"We couldn't find the page you are trying to access. 
Return to the forum's homepage."


Their support told me to change the name server to something specific.. so I did.

I also saw here on godaddy a message that said "Required: For your domain or subdomain to forward, its A record must be pointed to ________." So I changed the A record to the specified IP address.


Now when I go to my website by the godaddy domain, it shows the godaddy domain in the browser bar, it shows my forward masking title in the tab along with "pb" for proboards, but the website is blank.

When i enter the proboard address for my site in the browser, the homepage appears but when I press the "log in" button, now im sent to a blank page.


what am i doing wrong?


Hello @homeofbrown!


Thank you for posting. Some pages don't allow forwarding with masking. You may need to remove the masking in order for the forward to work.
