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

Please click install if you are using this hack.

great mod, thx a lot!

I've installed this mod on my forum and now I'd like to know how I can rebuild all (cached) links in those older posts that don't use this mod yet?

Thx for any help!

There is no need to rebuild anything. Links are only changed on the final output on the fly.

If I set "Anonymize links in posts", "Anonymize links in signatures", and "Anonymize links in Private Messages" to No will the blacklist still redirect links to certain website back to what I designate?

I ask because I am not really concerned about anonymizing links. I just want certain links in posts and PMs redirected back to my website.

Hmmm. I have the "Anonymize links in posts" and "Anonymize links in Private Messages" set to yes with and links in posts are being anonymized but links in PMs are not.

Also I wanted the link http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/XX-REMOVED-XX/ redirected back to my website so I put it in the blacklist with
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

in the White/Blacklist replacement URL but it is not being redirected

You can empty the anonymising link, this will turn off the anonymising part of the code. Keep the selection for post/pm&signatures set to yes.

The "White/Blacklist replacement URL" is the replacement for URLs that are blocked because of black/white list. You would typically use the link to your forum rules for example.

You can only add domains to the black/whitelist, not full URLs

Correct links in preview are not handled (and i don't really see a reason to do so).
Where exactly in the profile are links not handled? If you are talking about a profile field, then yes that is correct.
