    Whenever I load a page on the non-forum area of the site, it opens a tab that appears to be trying to trick me into downloading some form of malware. Seen on multiple devices (Windows and MacOS)

    I'm not going to post the URL it takes me to on the forum, please PM me if you want it.

    I got sent to some Swedish version of the same now, with an autoplaying voice ad pretending to give away free Iphones. So it's a definite problem.

    I used Chrome.

    In the middle of doing some maintenance now, hopefully the software updates will resolve this.

    I don't think it fixed it. I am still getting it when I move from the main site to the forums

    I'm unable to recreate this at all, I'm going to need more information in order to be able to resolve it.

    When you say you are moving from the main site to the forum, are you typing the address in? If you're clicking on a link, which exact link and page are you doing it from etc? Also anyone who is seeing them if you can send me a private message with a screenshot of what's coming up that would also be useful to try and track this down.

    Thanks Coach

    I've managed to replicate the issue.

    I just updated the theme as that was also out of date and I've deleted a lot of redundant files.
    I can no longer replicate it, so hopefully that's resolved it. If anyone has it happen again then please let me know.
