Solved sponsored links. how to delete them

Post by wildsurfer on July 29th 2010, 11:32 am

lately I noticed that some links on my forum's posts, are not anymore direct links, but there is a page with an ads (sponsors) before.
These sponsored page links are something like http://myForumAddress/go/aHRTERTvL3d3dy5tZ2xkLz9kPVFSSFFNSlRQ, so seems to be automatically generated by the forum itself.

This is not happening for all sort of links, but only for some domains (for example some filesharing websites like megaupload, mediafire... but not for example google)

Is there any way to turn it off?

Thanks in advance for the support

It's the feature added by forumotion lately to prevent illegal links.

I'm afraid it's not possible, since I think they already implemented it and testing it weeks ago.

thanks anyway for your help. I hope that the possibility to turn it off will be implemented sooner or later.

I can understand the good intentions behind it, but in normal cases this can be quite annoying.

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
