Suspicious "link" in our headers....

Post by CJs87Stang on August 18th 2013, 4:19 am

Recently I've been noticing that we have some suspicious "link" in our main Finish Line Racing header text and in our log-in widget. This is something that's never happened before, and I'm not really too sure why it's happening now.

The image below proves the point. I've looked in the Templates folders and couldn't find anything in regards to the link. However the link (when clicked on) redirects to a website called "VictoryTailGate.com". I feel that there is something wrong with this picture... Am I looking in the wrong spots or is there a way to remove it so it doesn't attract visitors to click on it and tend to feel like we are spreading a possible virus??

Hi,

I can't be sure if the two are related however recently forumotion implemented a new ad system where they took common phrases found on your forum board and added a link to them which is related to their new ad system,

You can disable this for guests by going to ACP --> General --> Configuration --> Text ads activation for guests(underlined) : No --> Save

If you do that then log out and see if they are activated for guests, If they no longer appear as a link then we can determine that is it this.

Derri,

The two are not by the same forumotion. The log-in widget is custom, pretty much
majority of what you see now is was customized by us through the templates folders.

I don't know how I can thank you enough! I found it and it is now resolved! A great relief for us all!

Thanks again,
CJ
