Hello all.

Over the past couple of weeks or so when I start to log in I get WAY to many pop-ups. And it does not stop there. Clicking on any link seems to create the pop-ups. This is usually a sign of an hacked site.

As the site been hacked, or is it more commercialism?

Any feed back would be very useful.

Yes, it has been an ongoing issue for awhile now. It happened last year but was fixed by the site administrators but unfortunately the problem has begun again.

Ugh!

I'm glad to discover that I'm not the only one experiencing constant 'pop-ups' on this site. The worst of it is that it's been almost impossible to actually even try to get on this site without, with whatever page that I'm on, without it immediately switching to another site(s) outside of the forum. I've got ad blocker on and it's not helping AT ALL!!!

Seriously, can the site administrators PLEASE ADDRESS THIS ISSUE?

It's not Pop-Ups for me but straight up redirections to spammy sites?

I don't know if it will help, but:

I've been getting the same thing since today. For those with uBlockOrigin,

Go into My Filters->copy+paste the following rules/addresses, save changes and see if you still get redirected:

iyfnzgb.com
horoskopishqip.org
d1lxhc4jvstzrp.cloudfront.net

On my end the redirects seem to have stopped, for the time being, at least.

I started having the same problem today as scoretooth2 and Akkubohrer.

I use Adblocker Ultimate and have found the problem can be stopped by going to Options section, then to Add your own filters tab, then add in the web address of the re-direct site(s). Wouldn't hurt to then clear History, close your browser, then re-open and try connecting to the forum again.

Three hours later and I'm up to six re-direct sites added to filters.

Yep - I get the same as well

I've tried that - but it obviously wanted me to re-enter my password when I came back to the site - when there a warning saying that the site wasn't secure - so I'd be wary of this

I use a combination of uBlock (more lightweight AdBlock) and NoScript. I've had no issues since.

I've had tons of issues last time I tried 2 weeks ago after logging on I have ADBLOCk etc and still had a ton of re-directs.

Been staying away from the Shrine since then.

I had issues with ffshrine due to that stuff but now it's all working smoothly. I can't tell if it was fixed or not but apparently it was.
