Actually, I don't think it matter how it works with internal links within GP.

It should be removed all together. Scrap the whole idea/concept.

We, the paying customers (or probably any site visitor), don't want it in any form for any links.

please remove this feature now.

maybe some development time spent on your rrs reader would be better to allow customization of what parts of the feed are displayed.

I also find the new outside link handler very annoying.  Paying members should be given the ability to disable this "feature" for their guild web site.  Better yet, just get rid of it completely.

I am just going to echo again my displeasure at the blocking of WoWHead item tooltips through their script.  Using the Interceptor for this eliminates one of the best features for World of Warcraft websites, and I can almost guarantee that there'll be a massive fallout from this if such support is not reinstated.  One needs only look to any of the major WoW sites to see just how common this is, and I believe it'd be in GuildPortal's best long-term interest to revert this.

Another code push was done, mail seems to be working now but the feature is still there, PLEASE give us a way to disable, make a whitelist for our scripts/external websites etc etc. My guild website is completely wrecked by this (we use custom placed buttons for phpraider/DKP and wowhead links to display our profession guides/lists/loot/etc)

I like the idea of paying customers to be able to disable this.

What's the point of it? Is it to hassle those that doesn't pay into paying. Sure, then remove it for the paying customers.

However, I find it really odd and a terrible way to get people to pay.

If it is a try to raise the security it fails. Noone reads it, and everyone gets angry.

People these days know that one web site isn't responsible for all other web sites on the internet.

Just remove it. I have payed until the summer, but I'm not renewing if this stays. No, it's not a threat. It's a promise.

this thing sucks. PLEASE REMOVE IT!

or allow us, as admins, to have the option to disable it

the popup warning wrecks the automatic tooltip from Wowhead.com

previously anytime you added a link for an ingame item that was in the wowhead.com database, like

http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34892

I had it setup to automatically display the game tooltip info for the item as a mouse over tooltip.

now with the new WARNING page... this tool no longer works. My guild members are, to say the least, not happy at all about this.

I agree.  The popup is very annoying.  I want it to be either removed entirely or configurable by the guild admins so we can turn it off for our sites.

Has guidportal even posted a response to this thread?  That is a poor way to resolve something that has a lot of guild admins up in arms.

Please.....hows about a response!
