Forum redirects to an other website?!

Post by ViciousPassion on July 28th 2012, 12:42 pm

Hello I have a little problem

A few weeks ago I disabled the pm fanction of a user cause she was pming my forum members advertising her own website (which has the same subject with mine).

Now the past few days two of my mods reported that they typed my forum address in the browser and instead of my forum went to hers. Then they refreshed the webpage and they were redirected to my forum.

Is that even possible?? Is it possible that she found a way to redirect people who visit my forum to hers? Can you please check her coding for anything suspicious?

My forum url: http://www.filessalesforum.com/
the other forum: http://www.filessales.com/

I don't think she could add anything that would make your forum url redirect to hers.

I can load yours fine without being redirected. Check the coding of any of her posts just to be sure? I was once 'hacked' and a redirection code was put in my forum's description box :/ (removing it solved the issue)

Clear all cookies at the bottom right of your forum (above the activity and stats box) as well as your browser's cache and cookies? Also, access your admin panel and resynchronise yourself?

I don't think she can do that, I disabled her pm's when she start spamming my members like 2 weeks ago.
