With all of the new cybersnooping powers, I perhaps suspect that avid information sharing posters are getting tracked. However with being said, I found a great website I had never seen before called www.newdawnmagazine.com

Awesome articles on this site, including UFO's, Ancient Culture, CIA History, etc. I linked it to my FB, and liked it. So I went back to it to read more, and it's not coming up anymore.

It keeps trying to have me do something with Wordpress. I'm not the brightest bulb, but this is one of the pages it has kicked back at me trying to read the site www.newdawnmagazine.com...


Am I just a noob?

Thanks.

Of course you're just a noob, dude!
Kidding.

Nah, I'd just wait a bit and try again. The likelihood you caused that is small, I'd think.

No bro..it wasnt u...they seem to have installed wordpress wrong/ I can explain this as admin error and lack of knowledge...it wasnt you..

you can see in the bar it directs you to


www.newdawnmagazine.com...


whenever you visit a wordpress site you should never see /wp-admin/install.php

someone installed wordpress wrong on the domain. you can visit almost any wordpress site and add in /wp-admin at the end and access the default admin loging screen. When the admin figures out he needs to delete the install.php file it should be fixed. however atm...that site is vulnerable to an attack,.,,,,

You can't "crash a website".

How can you associate you "liking a website on facebook" to a website server "crash" is beyond me...

Thanks for the feedback. I just worry that my laptop that I use has been compromised, to trash other websites. I have no right to be paranoid, but I do like tabloidy information...That truth hidden amongst the mass media...

Seems like only parts of the website are back up. It seems like the pages linking the articles or about joining the website are gone but that many of the URL's for the articles are still there and so is the main page. Just the stuff inbetween linking them telling what is where has vanished..

I think it's funny too that I thought maybe there was a chance that I had done something to crash their website or maybe was the last one to click before overloading their server... Guess not!

I just did and it works. What I think may have happened is you saved a shortcut to your desktop or favorites and that short cut was corrupted. It happens quit often if you are not on the home page of a site when you make the shortcut.
