Title: Highlighted blue text
Post by: jinky on October 18, 2013, 08:01:57 AM
I`ve got that problem again where some text is coming up highlighted blue with a link. Not a big problem but last time I had it someone on here told me a programme that would have installed itself with a toolbar or something and I got rid. An example is Canon
Says it has been installed with viglink and I read somewhere that this happens on some sites linked to Tapitalk or whatever it is . Anyone any suggestions?

Just tried to disable it after a link I saw testing  -  canon

No - didn`t work  :D

And again  Canon

And again no - told me viglink was disabled but not

One last test after supposedly disabling it again canon

Worked this time - if you have it just google disable viglink and there is a button to disable it but you have to do it for each browser you use. I am rteally learning on this site. Now I pose and answer my own questions  :D

Mick only just thought though - is it a money making think for this site that I have disabled?

Paul, sorry for any confusion.  Yes, I have Viglink installed on the site to help with the hosting costs, it should turn relevant words into links, and I get paid if anyone makes a purchase.  As you've discovered you can opt out, which is fine by me.

Same thing if you post an actual text link to for example  or ebay 7dayshop etc, and someone makes a purchase then the site get a few pence towards the pot.  It's not working very well though on here for some reason.

Ah sorry Mick. I should have asked first before disabling it. Thought it would be annoying people and only noticed it on my posts. Last time it was a rogue programme that did it that I had to uninstall and thought it was back.`ll make sure I feed some Amazon links over when I use them.
