New forum platform software?

17 posts in this topic

It seems the forum software was (quietly)  upgraded lately.

Can anyone tell me how to insert a picture from a gallery into a forum post?

Thanks

Hi Duggle,

 

The easy way: click "My Media" in the message editor and select from thumbnails of all of your uploaded images. 

 

The generated tag markup:

[sharedmedia=gallery:images:127]

the result (with automatic thumbnail/small preview):

 

 

Best regards

 

Tim

Umm... it seems that this "new" forum platform randomly embeds links to SPAM in user's posts.

 

Not cool. :mad:

I have no clue what you are talking about as you do not provide an example. And i do not know how to interpertate your post as it does not looks like constructive feedback but more like a complaint that you do not agree with this update. I could be wrong thinking this so could you please be so kind to elaborate?

Maybe you just stumbled upon some spambot posts?

Sorry, I assumed others have noticed this.

It's a complaint about the forum software (or something related).

 

I'm talking about how a (particular) word from peoples posts (I'll use the example where I first noticed this happening) appears on my browser as link to advertising (a.k.a spam).

In this post:

The word "Information" appeared on the browser as a hyperlink which takes the user to an advertisement. 

Is it possible the machine I was using was infected by Adware Malware?

That sounds more like some awesomely spammy browser toolbar than a forum issue.

It's Google Chrome on W7 x64 machine.

I'll take a good look at this tomorrow.

Very likely.....

 

This sounds like "text enhance" or a work-alike (there are many) that use adobe shockwave or adobe flash players to do the deed.

 

A quick google scrape found some decent info here: http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-text-enhance/

 

Best regards

Thanks again, Tim.

 

There was an extension in Chrome called "Save by click" or similar. Deleted.

The question that interests me a for long time: Is there any way to convert old forum links (for example index.php?topic=6542.0 or index.php/topic,11460.0.html) to actual format?

Now I know why I didn't get notifications in the last months. :sad:

 

I had to switch email notifications on again manually in my user preferences.
