I might be sloppy in my wording of this; in any case, it is not a big deal -- just wanted to bring this to the attention of the mods:

Your forums are 'grouped' (e.g., this comes under "This Site", MD comes under "Other" etc.). Go to the link of one of these groups e.g.,
http://www.coderanch.com/forums/c/11/

Now click on the last 'folder' (?) which should be the link to the same page. In the above example, it is "Other languages". It expects a base HREF and tries to visit a web-site http://forums/listCategory/11.

The same can be seen in other similar 'sibling' web-pages (e.g., replace the 11 after http://www.coderanch.com/forums/c/ with some other number such as 1 or 4 or 13). Only, in the example I gave, there is a forum (child) with the same name as the group (parent) viz., "Other languages", so it wasn't entirely stupid of me to be clicking it. At least that is my excuse for stumbling on to the bug.
