'Next' going to ring hub page
I have noted that when checking the operation of my webrings, clicking on the "next" link on the webring banner ALL TOO OFTEN takes you back to the ring hub page instead of the "NEXT" site in the ring.
What causes this problem? I've noted that sometimes a ring will be acting correctly, going to the next website in the ring, and then suddenly start going to the hub page. Once that happens it SEEMS to ONLY go to the ring hub page.
I do not do my own coding for the ring so I KNOW I haven't goofed up something there.
What might cause this? How can I rectify it?

Offhand we don't know, but we'll try to duplicate the problem. If we can do that then we can solve it.
There is one situation where we know this occurs, but it doesn't sound like yours. The one situation is when the navigation code on the site is for a non-active site; either pending or suspended sites will cause this. The reason it goes to the hub in this case is because there is, technically, no next site.
