    Trouble accessing the Site on iOS for iPad

    Greetings all. I am not sure if this isolated to just me and since I cant really tell since my iPad only has Safari as the browser but everytime I try to come to this site I get redirected to some site trying to sell me photos. It totally hijacks the conceptart.org address and tosses me to the four winds.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Yes, same thing for me to, on my iPad, redirects me to a crappy photo website. Conceptart.org address has been hijacked. All other websites work just fine.

    Same here on an android phone, its a redirect, so I guess the site has been "modified" to redirect mobile devices to this weird photo guide scam.

    Definitely wouldnt trust the content on this "new" ca.org on mobile devices.

    It's been reported. Hold on for a bit.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Not sure wether it's relevant but when i go to CA on Chrome with my Ipad it redirects to the aforementioned 'trick photography" but if i use Safari i get a more localized Dutch scam site of the " win an ipad" variety. Wich looks very similiar as some malware on my pc was directing to a while ago.

    Anyhoo i don't think it's coming from the trick photo crap directly i think, more likely some internet marketing service (run by shady characters no doubt) that crappy scam sites use to get traffic.

    Btw both the sites i was directed to had email addresses where they could be reached, methinks i might send them a friendly little note

    How was the hack accomplished? I had seen it too, and was baffled that it happened on iPad but nowhere else.
