    As of this morning whenever I click on "Continue Reading" in a post on the LSU News Forum instead of going to the site my browser takes me to Google News. This is happening on both my phone and laptop.

    I doubt that the RSS newsfeed is submitting google links instead of the correct ones. I don't have mad geekskills but all I can think of is that there may be a glitch in the Xenforo interface with the feed and instead of parsing the links into a clickable format the way it does with YouTube links it is substituting the google link. Possibly that was the default link during installation.

    Only somebody with admin access can fix it. @BRETT if you are on another planet or something can you at least use a the Vulcan mind meld to fix this?

    Happening to me too. All news feeds are linking to google news, and happens on phone, laptop, etc.

    He would know how to fix it if he had access to admin user status.
