Solved Portal Page Undesirable Link

Post by rhoda on April 13th 2015, 2:33 am

Technical Details


Forum version : phpBB3
Position : Administrator
Concerned browser(s) : Google Chrome
Who the problem concerns : All members
When the problem appeared : problem occurred since we opened and then it was resolved (or so I thought) but now its returned
Forum link : http://cherishedmoments.forumotion.net

Description of problem

I was told how to change so guests cannot post links on our Portal Page. it worked for a few days but now the problem of a link showing under our Forum Header in the last three words of our forum description. Ie. "design awesome tag" is now showing a link. This only shows when I am logged out. I checked the setting in Admin Panel and its set correctly but the problem returned. Any ideas?

Does this occur on all devices? I do not see it when I visited your forum using a PC computer.

Clear your browsers' caches and histories. If that does not work, I would run some scans.

I ran a Malwarebytes scan maybe an hour ago but I'll rerun it once more.

I clear my cache and histories regularly and the scan showed another 5 PUP intrusions that attach to Google Chrome Extensions. : (

Thank you Ange. This was done previously as I had this problem before. That setting is set for No. Thanks for your help. I need to do a more thorough hard drive clean. This topic may be closed. xoxo Smile
