forum adverts or hacked????

Postby davidflood » 12 Nov 2012, 12:46

Hi

I have just done a post under dogs needing a home and 2 of the words have been linked to adverts????

I have not done this so i wondered if it was a new feature of the forum to try and raise some revenue or if the forum has somehow been hacked????

I can't see it in the above post but I use another forum where words are randomly used as links to other sites.

There's nothing underlined as I look at it now. Maybe it is something that is linked to individual's settings? I know what you mean though, I have seen it on other boards before.
