In progress Clicking on topics leads to other sites

Post by Geocachingmama on January 3rd 2015, 6:35 pm

A forum member has just mailed me saying that when she clicks on a topic heading, she's now twice been taken to a pornographic site. My forum is a parenting one with a very high level of security on it. My poster is quite shocked by this so I said I would find out more. Could this be an issue with her iPad rather than a forumotion problem. No one else seems to have experienced the same issue.
Many thanks.

This happen to me once just the other day. I clicked on a topic on the forum I belong to andit took me to a porn page. When I tried again immediately afterwards everything was back to normal.

Yes, only those who are members can access the forum, you cannot read anything without being a member.
I've run the forum for 6 years and never had an issue so I do wonder if this is her iPad.

I really do not know enough about IPads. Ask her if she can run a scan of her IPad.
