Thanks to TC from ElAntro.cl for the PHP code.

This hack will allow you to have active links on your forum but with security knowing the place were you are linking to wont know were you came from. Ie. If you click on a link in a post on your web site, the web site you go to will not know were you came from.

Time: 1 minute

Files to edit: 1
Files to upload: 1

No screenshots needed. Also, please click ‘install’ if you use.

I used your Active Link Security 3.0 but this is better because it doesn't use any site :)

* Click Install

Regards

i dont know if this was ever covered but is there a way to not redirect same site links?

Lionel 17 Oct 2004 19:31

I changed the content to "20" in links.php so I could test it, but it goes straight to other site...

edit:... never mind it works, but with new links only.

dndog 17 Oct 2004 19:36

Are there any practical reasons for this?

It sounds good, but I don't know why anyone would want to do this.

Yes. Make sure your users know about the [thread] and [post] BB codes.

Many reasons. Read though 'Active Link Security 3.0' for many reasons people posted.
