What is the difference between www.<username>.theforumsite.com and www.theforumsite.com/users/<username>?

The both go too the same page, but it depends on what you click on.

The first one doesnt work with old browsers either

The site was expanded. Use the one which gives you the best results.

the username.theforumsite.com subdomain redirects to the folder /users/username. It's exactly the same. Technically I don't think it should matter which browser you're using though, you might wanna check your browser cache.

do some browsers not do redirects? That seems weird.

well it's not a redirect. but some browsers have problems depending on the username, like _ doesn't usually appear ina domain name and it makes the browser not work right.

No. The index php figures out what to show depending on what the domain name is.

It is IE6, which does indeed suck. And it wont redirect, it just wont display the web page if there is an underscore in the username

that's weird that IE6 doesn't support underscores. I mean, underscores have been allowed characters in URLs for years haven't they?

I don't think they're technically allowed.
