Annoying forced ads
« on: October 23, 2019, 09:03:01 am »
Everytime when i even try to open my forum I get redirected to one of those fake “you won an iPhone X” websites, after a few seconds. I can’t even access my forum normally why is this here??

I am unsure what causes it. I had a couple people have the issue but haven't ever seen those ads myself.

Ivar I think you need to clear your browser's cache. That usually happens when a trojan is interfering with your access.

You might have to block quantserve.com which is where these ads come from.

I've seen this and using

https://yourforumname.createaforum.com/index.php instead of just http://yourforumname.creataforum.com seems to keep it from happening. It's a security issue, and I'm glad we don't have any money involved with our boards.
