vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 4
Released: 09 Aug 2003 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported  

This is my first hack I have made for vBulletin. It may be a simple one to some people, but atleast its a hack!


Hack name: Yahoo as Referer

version: 0.1

Author: Hostc

vBulletin versions: All

What this hack does: This hack will simpily add http://www.yahoo.com/* before any parsed URLs.

Example: if I posted a link to http://vbulletin.org this hack would make it http://www.yahoo.com/*<a href="http:...letin.org/</a> thus making yahoo as the referer to any logs

However it does use a bit of Yahoo's bandwidth, so not totally innocuous...

Another reason for this is if your site deals with subjects that may or may not be illegal in various places around the world.

To check and see if it works you use a Log like AWstats or webalizer etc.


I'm not sure if you can do this with google... since http://google.com/*http://www.vbulletin.org/ doesn't work.

Ooh! I like that SafeURL site! They seem to be designed for exactly what this hack is meant to do!

Forgive my ignorance but could you not just edit the [url] and the [url=x] bbcodes to get this effect?
