When I click on the featured post "these are the gifts Dad will really love" it takes me to this page asking me to download an app for a webpage called "The Prowl". (Pictured)

Is it supposed to do this??

I think they are owned by the same people. It's like Pinterest for individual items.

Ahhh....

You might want to throw a disclaimer or post with a link to the site bc I honestly thought it was a glitch, hack or something that would give me a virus kwim?
