Link Anonymizer and Censor 1.20

Author: MarcoH64

vBulletin Version: 3.6.x

Description:
This Product will add a self configurable anonymising link to all external urls in posts. Optionally it will also give you a Whitelist or Blacklist option for URL's. With this option you can censor URL's replacing those on the Blacklist (or not on the Whitelist) with a predefined text and/or link.

Installation:
Install the XML-file as Product.
Upload the contents of the 'upload' folder to your forumhome directory.

Configuration:
vBulletin Options->Link Anonymizer and Censor:
  • Local Addresses
Local addresses are not anonymized. If you leave this option blank, the value for vBulletin Options Cookie Domain will be used. Do not use a http:// prefix.
If you start the name with a dot (.mydomain.com) all server addresses ending with this will be considered local. If you want to add mulitple domain/servernames, seperate them by a single space.

Link to a anonymizer function. Use preceding / if needed. Other Usable Anonymizers:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

  • Allways anonymize Unparseble URLs
  • Other options are explained in the vBulletin Options
Alternative local redirect script that can be used with this modification can be found at http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...3&postcount=64

It is a typo in the threadid, should have been http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/misc....rsion&t=143615
instead of http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/misc....rsion&t=143616

You can update it in your Product Manager if you want, will update the zip-file in a minute.

Edit: Zip-file updated. This is not an update to the code, so there is no reason to update your board. If needed you can also manualy change the Version Check URL.

Now i notice that it has issues with 2 entries that need/need not to be redirected.

it works on the second entry but wont anonymize the first

If your Forum URL is set correctly in your vBulletin Options, then you will not need to set a local address in most cases.

In your example you say that your local address is ".mysite.org" but the links are for "my.org". Also try setting the local address without a leading ".".

PS The routines that define the local address have not been changed since the 3.5 version, so it would be strange if you discovered a new bug in it.

If you can not make it work, then please PM me direct links to the post that have problems, together with ACP access for your board.

as for Local Address, could it be possible in the near future to have it filter more than one ?!

reason: i have two domains pointing on the forum... english and french domains for the same site... i'd like these two domains to be filtered, not only the one in the settings... would it be possible, or i have to tweak it myself ?!
(because i know that a lot of people are pointing more than one domain on their forums...)

From the description of the Local Addres setting in the ACP:
Local addresses are not anonymized.

If you leave this option blank, the value for vBulletin Options Cookie Domain will be used.

Do not use a http:// prefix.

If you start the name with a dot (.mydomain.com) all server addresses ending with this will be considered local. If you want to add mulitple domain/servernames, seperate them by a single space.

How the world can you get confused by something like this anyhow?

Marco, one option I would like to see is a timed redirect, have them wait for a few seconds to be redirected to another domain. Almost like having a countdown / timer there going when they are being redirected. Perhaps put some elevator music in the background while they are on-hold until they are redirected .

So a timed redirect with a counter on how much longer until they are taken to an offsite URL...

Follow me?

Thanks.

I will not be adding some timed redirect. All this modification is doing is adding a prefix (the anonymize URL) to links posted.

If you want a timed redirect, i suggest you create a local script that can handle this and set that scipt as anonymising URL.

Try my hack if you want a timed redirect, all it doesn't have is the censor options.
