I'm not sure where to post this to get it noticed by the site builders, but I've noticed a problem with the links. Often when I click a link (any link: forum topics, pictures, recipes, etc.) it will take me to a completely unrelated website outside of cakecentral. Sometimes it looks like a search page, and sometimes it appears to be a business page. My anti-virus software has reported several of the pages to have viruses. I just want to make sure CakeCentral knows this is happening so they can hopefully get it fixed! I love the site, but I don't need any viruses on my computer!

whatever is happening to you, its not coming from, you must have some malware on your computer.

No one else has reported this, we have been unable to replicate it, and all scans of our servers are clean.

Thanks for looking into it Heath! I've had it happen on 2 separate computers, but I'll run a scan on both and see if I can find anything.

Check it with Google as well. I've had a Google redirect virus twice and it is a pain in the a$$ to get rid of. What happens is you type something in to Google and when you click on the link it redirects you to some bogus advertising page (usually) or another site where you can pick up even more malware or viruses.

It sucks!
