    An invalid threadid or forumid was specified

    When using the 'unsubscribe' link from a forum update e-mail message, I always get the error 'An invalid threadid or forumid was specified'.
    Any idea what's wrong?

    Do you have an example URL?

    Yes, for example from the notification e-mail of this thread:

    The error message refers to threadid and forumid ... neither of which are in the URL.
    If you try to unsubscribe via the forum web interface then it looks something like this
    h t t p s ://forums.slimdevices.com/subscription.php?do=removesubscription&t=123456
    where "t" is the threadid.

    So my guess is that this is a bug or configuration problem in vBulletin forum software.

    Question:
    I assume that the last item in your URL is an authentication by-pass mechanism but perhaps it is broken.
    Is your default web browser (the one that opens when you click the link in your email) set to be logged in as you automatically?

    No, I'm not logged in automatically; not on my desktop and not on my smartphone. The latter isn't a common (login) use-case imho, as most of the time such e-mail links are opened with an embedded html viewer and not via a complete browser.

    It would be an easy test for you to make on your desktop.
    I do not know what the result would be and I do not have email notifications from the forum.

    You could also check the vBulletin support forum (I expect there is one) to see if this is a known issue with the version used in the SlimDevices forum.

    Tested with a logged in browser (I think I already did that in the past): same error.
