Things appear  to be functioning properly now at our site, how about everyone else?

Corwin did you get a response to your support ticket?

I just figured how to add the code. Thanks so much FitzztiF.

Code works with firefox but not with IE.


Anyhow, I don't think this should in any way release GP from making things RIGHT themselves.

I look forward to hearing from them and what they plan to do about it.

Ug, what a stupid change.  Thanks GP for making me take 30 minutes out of my day to hack around this. 


FitzztiF,
Thank you very much for figuring out what was needed to backout this change!

I found this in the Change Log:

Beginning work on a external sites linkinterceptor, as a way of providing a warning to users when clickinglinks that go to external sites about taking security precautions. Thisis pretty common practice now.

Hey, GP MORONS.  Remove this link interceptor crap or I cancel my subscription and move my WOW guild's portal to another provider.  Is that clear enough for you?

I will have to agree with you, this change is the most absolute stupid thing I have ever seen. I will also pull my sub if this doesn't change

I can understand having an interceptor window on a financial website, but not for a gaming site.

Can't all of this be stated, if it isn't already, in the TOS instead?

I don't want to have to "hack" my own site to get around this. GP has been good about fixing things in the past and I'll trust they'll do so again.

I'd really like our Links and posted links to work again, and without warning spam. My guild's been here over five years and never needed it before.

Thanks for the link Ghantu. I don't know any other sites that use a link interceptor.

Although the script works for Firefox I'm hearing it doesn't work for IE users. There needs to be a feature to turn this off. Or remove it entirely.

I don't know why this "feature" was even put in.  Can someone from gp side please explain why this is necessary?

If it is necessary then is there a way that gp can allow us to disable this?  Either by site or even individually.  Its very very annoying as it stands right now.
