vigLink links appearing on discussions
 
Hello only recently did i realized many in-text links are in reality direct links to ebay and have nothing to do with the supposed text they highlight, is this intentional or is this a virus?

Same. It's annoying. Viglink is creating links out of random key words. For example, someone posted the text "it's a pain" and Viglink made pain a link to eBay. :nuts:

Edit: and it just did it for "eBay"






Admin, any way to knock this crap off?

Testing ebay

Hmm. Didn't do it for me, but I'm using Chrome with Adblock.

I tweaked my Adblock so all better now. Thanks.

Could you share what you did to remove that? Please.

edit: forget me asking, it seems it was easy to remove that links with adblock. :)

Munkus Dec 10, 2018 09:52 PM

It's back again, even with adblock on. :mad:

BTW you can disable Viglinks in your current browser by going to https://www.viglink.com/opt-out and opting out of it. Doing so sets a cookie to tell Viglink to disable itself, so if you clear your cache & cookies you'll need to enable the cookie again.

ebay

Testing again.

Still didn't do it...

Random words to test things.

How do you do this crap on phone. I am getting a ton of keyword ads in Safari.

SubCog Dec 25, 2018 12:10 AM

Can we please change viglinks to vaglinks? I don't think anyone here will complain.

Meteor_of_War Sep 20, 2019 09:40 AM

Is anyone else having issues with these Viglink things again? I have it disabled on this page but am still getting the annoying Viglinks in posts. What happened?

[EDIT] Oh so it should be set to ENABLED? Links seem to be gone now when set to enabled on that page. I must have cleared my cookies and when I went to fix Viglinks I set it to disabled when it should be enabled. Confusing to my feeble mind apparently.

[EDIT2] Nope, the links are back. They keep reverting, and I have to keep going back and re-enabling on the opt out page. So something may be wrong with the cookie saving on my browser.

[EDIT3] OK looks like the Adblock add-on in Firefox was updated and maybe I needed to adjust settings. Enabling "Block additional tracking" and disabling "Allow Acceptable Ads" seems to have fixed the Viglinks coming back.
