Mobile URL Highjack!
« on: December 16, 2012, 08:18:15 PM »
Today my iPhone app for wordpress wouldn't work saying it couldn't connect to the site.  I was out on the road, so I used my phone to go to my site (ModernSelfProtection.com).  I run a site about self defense, when I went there on my phone it sent me to a porn site.  When I added the "www." it sent me to a different porn site.  Then I check on a lap top.  On the computer everything worked like it should.

I called Hostgator and they where very helpful and able to turn off the redirect.  But they also turned off my theme's (iFeature) mobile site now I have plain text. 

I'd like to know what happened to stop this in the future and also if anyone knows a good plugin for a mobile version of a site.

Stay Safe,

Ben

I don't have any advice, but thank you for sharing!  Something to keep in mind for all of us.
