The links should disappear if you have posted recently. I think there may be a way to disable them and will look around a bit...

pop ups

Thank you. I found it irritating to find these on my posts (when they had nothing to do with the subject).

Stopping adlinks coming from the forum

Janet,

Your suggestion helps, but as I asked before, why are these even appearing?

Who is it that made a decision to include these irrelevant adlinks? I see no comments that the adlinks are helpful or useful.

Let us address these questions to that person. I, for one, would like to hear the reasoning.

Could you please pass this along to that person?

Finally, a user can permanently block these adlinks by following the suggestions on the site link I provided in the earlier posting so they don't worry about these reappearing once they clear cookies on their browser.

Thank you!

I just noticed these as well [and I WAS logged in]. Here's a way to get rid of them without having to take a cookie from an advertising site. Add the following line in the /etc/hosts file on a Mac or *nix box, or in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts on a PC:

127.0.0.1 kona.kontera.com

then empty your browser cache.

127.0.0.1 is your own PC. Followed by a domain name, this line tells your computer that site is on your own computer, so it won't go lookup the internet address of that site and find it. As a result, it can't get the javascript that causes these. You can use this technique to eliminate all kinds of advertising. Just "View Source" on the webpage with the problem and look for the address of the advertising site.

This "ContentLink" appears to be a copy of IntelliTxt. The latter has several sites that provide it, so you wind up with several lines in /etc/hosts to deal with it.

i tried and didn't get any. i'm pretty careful about using adblockers and anti-pop-up software. most of what i use is free downloads like from download. com, etc. i remember how annoying all those pop-ups used to be and i certainly wouldn't want to go back to them. i use firefox 2.0.0.3.

Although they have the same effect, ContentLink and IntelliTxt aren't really pop-ups and won't be stopped by pop-up blockers.

AdBlock for FireFox lets you enter global blocks, such as *kontera* while the technique I described above uses specific site names. In other words, I'd have to add a line for kona2.kontera.com if they started serving ads from an alternate server named kona2.

I did as Maurice outlines above, after logging out I saw the ads. I made the changes, cleared cookies and history, and returned withut logging in. The contentlinks were gone. Yay!

I am the person who made the decision to use a contextual advertising program. The reason they are there is to create reveue to keep the forums running.

If you all are seeing these contextual ads and you would like to not see them, it's very easy (and free) to remove them. Simply opt-out of the program or join and make a post every so often.
