CycleChat redirecting to wrong Amazon store

    I posted a link yesterday to Amazon's UK store (HERE) but it got redirected to the US store. I asked other members to check and sometimes we are getting the UK site and sometimes the US. I am getting the UK today but others are still getting the US.

    I am in the UK, using a UK ISP and have UK settings on my computers.

    I had this - there was a thread on it too :whistle: but it seems to have fixed itself.
    Just checked now, both Amazon on the shopping link site and on your link come up as .uk for me.

    You are not going to believe it but the skim links in your post and mine are now taking me to the US site again! :laugh:

    That's funny, on my office laptop the link goes to the UK site but clicking the same link on my Android tablet or my iPad takes me to the US site. Weird!

    It keeps changing for me. I think the software is guessing... :laugh:

    I have currently relocated to the US of A. Apparently!

    You're near the border AND in Area 51.

    Thanks for reporting it @ColinJ - I've started a support ticket to try and get it resolved. If they can't fix it, I'll ask them to disable the redirects to Amazon altogether.

    This should now be resolved but it may take a day or so for the fix to roll out. Part of the fix has also created a temporary SSL issue, as discussed here. This too should resolve itself shortly.
