Unusual activity on this web sight

Post by dhenry132 on 2/10/2017, 12:41 pm

I have noticed some unusual activity on this web sight. Asking if anyone else has noticed a redirecting to another web sight when you click on one of the Forum topics.
Every once in a while EMMA wants me to chat with her. No bugs on my end. Just asking
Thanks

Its your browser or computer. Some rogue search toolbars, add-ons or other malware caused the redirects.

All free forums have ad banners at times but the redirecting and  those issues come from your end not the forum.

Got most if not all of straightened out.
Apparently I got some wayward Cookies. Not sure from where but is was only on this site I had troubles with the redirection. After I captured the URL's and blocked them and the tracking from Criteo on this site it quit.
I don't know where it all come from but I was only have the issue on this site. Maybe this will help someone else that has similar issues.

My PC has been redirected a couple times in the past week, from this forum only. Doesn't happen on other sites. I'm far from a computer wiz, so not sure if it's my PC or this site.

OAny issues will be on the user end 99% of the time on these free forums.They are run by a huge company who hosts thousands of them and they have state of the art software and monitorthem 24-7, if the forum was compromised we would have thousands of users with issues  not two or three.

What I experienced was redirected when scrolling in horizontal on a Droid. It only happened one day. Probably Auto corrected with software updates.
