Yeah, not crazy about this either. VigLink got bought out by Sovrn. I don't think anybody is paying attention here anymore...Any way to keep the links out of the footer/post editor / forum titles etc. outside of using excessive amounts of "nolinks" div class? Feel like this should be built into an add-on, to ONLY insert links into posts and not various other areas. On XF1.5 this is how it worked, now they're just everywhere!!
One cure for that is to contact your rep and have them blacklist the phrase "thread starter" on their end. That should prevent it from being linked. (The blacklist is a way they can disable phrases that shouldn't be linked.)So annoying that "thread starter" gets VigLinked on all my forums...
If there's a "post" template, I'd put it there. In the footer, you'll have the links showing up everywhere you don't want them. I'm just not sure which template would cover only the post table... That's where I'd like to manually put my code...Given that this plugin has some issues, what is the best way to manually install Viglink on XenForo 2.1? Step-by-step instructions would be appreciated.
I do, unfortunately, and it is showing up in phrases like "thread starter" and even post and poll titles, where it shouldn't be.I've pasting the code from the Viglink site in the PAGE_CONTAINER template just above the </body> tag.
My Viglink settings are set as in the screenshot below. I haven't had an issue with Viglink linking random phrases.
Try disabling the Insert feature of Viglink. I have that disabled on my primary API and don't run into those problems.I do, unfortunately, and it is showing up in phrases like "thread starter" and even post and poll titles, where it shouldn't be.
I thought of it, but we make a substantial amount from Insert. (Depending on which site or forum it is, we sometimes disable Insert for logged-in members.)Try disabling the Insert feature of Viglink. I have that disabled on my primary API and don't run into those problems.
I got in touch with VigLink (Sovrn) it seems they rolled out a new ad exchange feature and that's what was causing the junky domains to be called via VigLink. Currently working with them on setting up an API key that affiliates links only without all the other junk.Has anyone had trouble with Viglink inserting garbage onto their page? One of my more technically adept members got a malware warning on my forum linking to known bad domains like dx . bigsea . weborama . com & ce . lijit . com . As soon as the Viglink JS was removed the problem went away. I know VG sold last year or the year before and hope it's just a temporary issue on their end. It's nice to make a few bucks off affiliating links but not if they're going to pull stuff like that.
