Solved mysterious links appearing

Post by WHITESABBATH on November 10th 2013, 6:31 am

I'll do my best to explain my problem. 
  In some of my portal widgets I have the text/words UNITED NATIONS (my forum title) .I noticed when i'm logged out of my forum (only) those words become links to some site which i do not own or even belong to. I decided to replace the text (UNITED NATIONS) with variables. Unfortunately that didn't help. When log into the site they are no longer links ,its only when i'm logged off. 

Links directing here


Pic of one of my widget ..the underlined becomes a link when logged out. it can be seen in several widgets..

Hello

To the others, this has been happening to me too, so it's just not him in case you try fixing it up with a code or something. It's probably linked to Forumotion Smile

Hello WHITESABBATH,

I do not see these links when looking, but check to see if the following option is enabled.
Administration Panel > General > Forum > Configuration

Find the option 'Text ads activation for guests(underlined)', tick 'no', and save.

Just to give a little background WhiteSabbath these text ads are part of Forumotions new ad system. Some other things such as footer ads have been added etc. Its been around for these last few months, I think it might have been June but I'm not sure.
