Virgin Holidays may be in the middle of a wide-ranging and long-running overhaul of its web content management system, but some users were faced with a confusing web message this week.
Visitors to the iPhone mobile web version of Virgin-Holidays.com saw the words "secure" and "insecure" randomly appearing on various parts of the site, most worryingly for some users around the area promoting its security.
The messages did not disappear when pages were re-visited or re-loaded.
The standard website did not show similar errors and there are no real security errors associated with the service.
Virgin officials say the problem has occurred as a result of ongoing changes being made to its content management system - a process to unify its editorial, video and image libraries for online and brochures into a single database.
The central content repository from Vyre is slowly being introduced across the Virgin Holidays brands, with Travel City Direct the first to be on the system from November 2009.
The main Virgin Holidays site is not expected to be complete until later in 2010 or early next year.
Chris Roe, general manager for sales and distribution at Virgin Holidays, says the iPhone web error can be fixed but admits it is not currently a priority as traffic through that particular platform do not warrant a major maintenance and code release.
