Just letting you know that the direct link provided to the book trailer competition at Ford Street publishers should not be used. That link has been hacked, and you will find inappropriate material on the website (Viagra, casinos etc).

Hi Alicia

Thanks for going to the trouble of contacting me re the site.

We became aware of this problem the other day when I typed in the direct link to the trailer into facebook. Oddly, the viagra ads only display when going direct to pages. If you try going to www.fordstreetpublishing.com<http://www.fordstreetpublishing.com> and then clicking news, you'll not see the ads. This is why I posted the general website url. Unfortunately, whoever posted on OZTL has posted the direct link, which of course will show the viagra.

It's a hack, not a virus. Unfortunately, because we can't "see" the corrupted code, it's nigh impossible to get rid of. We're having to migrate the site to a different program which is a huge nuisance, but that should stop, at least for a while, those unfortunate ads. It's sad that people hack children's sites with such material.

Best wishes
Paul

Hi there - I think you're website has been fiddled with - there are links to best buys for Viagra and some weird Canadian stuff and something about cialis? I went to your website via this link,http://www.fordstreetpublishing.com/ford/index.php/about-ford-street/news via the Oz-tel net (teacher librarians) and every second title was best price for Viagra. Its possible that it is my computer that has been subjected to a virus or something, but I thought I'd let you know
