I'm getting a similar error on 3.8.7 pl2 when clicking on the ad at the top of the forum threads listing.

"Could not find phrase 'invalid_redirect_url_x'."

thanks for help!

Hey. I'm still around.

Between work & life, I haven't had much time to code (anything). The other thing is that for some reason I seldom get emails from this site when people reply to my threads or PMs.

Anyhow, I plan to revisit this after the first of the year when things calm down some. Grant, I'll send you an email shortly.

Thanks! I look froward to hearing - let's see if this gets through to you - it should - perhaps your spam filter is wound too tight? vB forum emails can be worded kinda spammy. We had to tweak many of ours.

I hope it gets updated.

Does anyone know of a way to tweak it for 4.1.8? I was running it on 4.0.7 and it worked great. Now it all works except the links. When you click on a banner you get the error below

Invalid Redirect URL

It just shows my forum and Invalid Redirect URL then the url it was supposed to go to.

Invalid Redirect Issue
You will need to add each sponsor URL (FULL URL) to the "Redirect Domain Whitelist" in the vBulletin Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details section. See screenshot below.


I'll work on automating this in the next release, but this should at least get you guys up & going again.

Doesn't matter the order. vBulletin checks that value anytime a redirect is requested that isn't local (on your site).
