Just thought I should bring this to someone's attention in case it is an issue for others besides me. On about 5 different occasions I have accessed this site on my Safari browser on mobile and after a few seconds have been automatically redirected to this site:

It just happened now and I finally thought to get a screenshot of the site before closing it. I'm also very sure I didn't accidentally click any link or ad. This is not happening on any other site I visit on this phone.

Thanks. Is this on the forum or main site?

I get it too. Multiple warnings/ads -- WalMart, "Site Infected. Click here to clean", etc.

I get it on the home page and the main forums page.

Anybody else reading this, double tap the home button and swipe up to close the browser. Don't click on any links.

The WDWMagic app isn't having this problem.

And either @wdwmagic has fixed whatever it was, or I'm not having the same issue using safari on my iPhone.

Thanks for the link explaining this. I’ve had a bunch of these pop up lately throughout the forums. I’ll try to pay attention to which threads and report them for you.

Just thought I would bump this... I have been getting these redirects occasionally, but today is exceptionally bad. Anytime I go to any forum page or thread I get redirected to a Facebook ad with audio saying "congratulations." I used to just open a new tab and it would be fine, but today no matter what I do it wouldn't let me read anything.

After a quick Google search, I found this site with instructions on how to stop it:https://www.androidpolice.com/2017/11/08/heres-protect-rogue-redirect-ads-right-now-chrome/

Still... I am getting the redirect blocked multiple times on every page. I've attached an image of it. Just thought I would share!

Thanks. If you don’t mind, completing this would be really helpful.
