    Back a couple years ago I designed out website with WIX. I know some of you despise that and you would rather sit for hours and write code and all that but I was not embedded with such patience and skillz. When I send my emails out to clients my tagline has the website address to it. I got a reply email from my cousin who told me my link was taking her to a photography site. I went in and clicked on it and it took me to my site.:help

    I have gotten 2 more replies that my link takes them to a photgraphy site. the last one was yesterday and he was viewing on a mac. well my cousin has a mac and there we go. I thought a web address was a web address how can macs users NOT be linked to my address like the pc users. Am I missing something? I know the two have had small conflicts in the past but a damn web address?

    I tried to reach wix and all I get is "go to our forum" replies. Figures.

    PC and an iMac on this end take me to your site. So I don't know unless there is something else that they are doing and not realizing it. There shouldn't be a conflict like this between the two platforms or it would be wide spread and affect everyone.

    I would lay good money down it's not your site, wix or even the "Mac" itself that is causing the issue. What your describing sounds like a "virus" for lack of a better term.

    I have had malicious software hijack my browsers before that produced similar results when clicking links. They usually will redirect you to a website where they get paid for the click through, or to boost traffic on a client's website to charge them more for their services.

    I would venture to guess if you ask both of them if they recently installed a toolbar or similar software to their browsers you will find they both did something very similar.

    "The Niki Brown site is a template for the mobile site- so people who see it are viewing the site from a mobile device, not a desktop. This template is there until you either build your mobile site- or delete the mobile site from your 'my account' page.

    no trouble here either.

    ask them to forward you back the email and check from there.

    i bet you the link is broken in half and their search engine provider makes the best guess...
    like

    www.visual-

    images-signs.com

    and their email program is too dumb to put it together and sends them to images-signs.com

    You spelled "area" wrong on your main page.
