The email notifications I receive from the forum letting me know of new comments to threads to which I'm subscribed contain bad URLs. The thread links in the emails result in a 'No Data Found' page being displayed.

 

For example, this is the link in the most recent email I received:

 

    https://community.tp-link.com/en/business//forum/topic/151719

 

This is what the correct link should be:

 

    https://community.tp-link.com/us/home/forum/topic/151719

 

As you can see, the bad link has 'en/business//' (including 2 slashes) whereas the correct link has 'us/home/'

@NikD63 

 

Thank you for letting us know about this.  Likely what happen is the US requested for its community to be seperate from our other markets, so likely this is just a simple coding issue.  I will contact our Software team to have them work on this and correct it.  

 

 

Thank you again

As an addendum to this, here's some related behavior.

 

If I accidentally (or intentionally) end up on the business side of the website (https://community.tp-link.com/en/business/) and then go to my own user profile (User Center) I see similar problems. For example, if I click on 'My Subscriptions' I can see my subscribed forum topics/threads listed on the right. But as with the links in the notification emails, these links are also wrong. Both the forum links and the topic links URLs contain 'en/business' instead of 'us/home'.

 

So the link to this topic shows up as:

 

    https://community.tp-link.com/en/business/forum/topic/154331

 

instead of the correct:

 

    https://community.tp-link.com/us/home/forum/topic/154331
