Website Navigation Tip

As Bicycling Monterey’s second decade gets underway, we’re making some changes. If you see a “page or image not found” message, or if some photos or other media don’t display, there are solutions.

Solutions

This site has been provided as an unpaid public service for over a decade. Yes, troubleshooting these glitches are on our to-do list!

(1) The post or page you are on may have a glitchy URL, bikemonterey.org/blog. In that case, delete “blog” from the URL, so it’s simply bikemonterey.org. (There is no such URL as bikemonterey.org/blog.)

(2) If you see a question mark where you’d expect to see a photo or other image (e.g., in a sidebar widget, or when you’ve used the search window and a gallery of search results displays), click on the question mark, and voila! The photo or other image will likely appear.

(3) If you use any of the bit.ly links created over the years as shortcuts to reach a Bicycling Monterey post or page, some still direct to the original URL, marilynch.com/blog. (Curious why Bicycling Monterey’s original domain name was marilynch.com/blog? Click here.) Photos or other images of a post or page will likely still display just fine. If not:

Simply change the root URL of the post or page you’re on from https://marilynch.com/blog to https://bikemonterey.org. For example, if you use https://bit.ly/BikeAdvocacy, you’ll likely land on https://marilynch.com/blog/resources/bicycle-advocacy-what-you-can-do; and if not all photos/images display, substitute https://bikemonterey.org/resources/bicycle-advocacy-what-you-can-do.

Less often, the reverse process may be necessary—that is, substituting https://marilynch.com/blog/resources/bicycle-advocacy-what-you-can-do for https://bikemonterey.org/resources/bicycle-advocacy-what-you-can-do.)
