Solved Pornographic advertising links at the bottom of posts!

Post by Guest on July 5th 2011, 5:53 pm

I am out of town at the moment on a very precarious internet connection so I have not been able to determine if there is some setting I can adjust to fix this problem.

My forum's moderator informed me that all logged out guests are getting treated to porn advertising links at the bottom of certain posts. My forum is devoted to computer games, and my rules (and forummotion's I thought) expressly forbid porn on the forum, but the links are there and are not my doing and were not posted by my members. Can someone please look into it for me or tell me what to do to get rid of the porn links?

Here is an example in a screenshot thread posted by a member named Vicky. As you can see, some of the porn ads seem to be parsing the thread content and returning porn links with related names.

Hi, what you're seeing is the traffic exchange system. Simply disable it by going to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. General Tab
3. Traffic exchange (on the left, under Forum promotion)
4. Select 'Activate traffic exchange : No'

We would also appreciate it if the forum is reported to us, should it contain anything illegal or in breach of the terms of service. Wink

Thanks, I appreciate the help. I think that solved it for me. That forum with the porn link is here (I linked the exact one from the forum). I didn't want to click on it and see what was there myself.

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