Getting rid of page redirection (see thread description)

Post by Harmony Ltd. on Sat May 09, 2015 6:51 am

- Go to the "Profile" page.
- Click the "Preferences" tab.
- Select NO in the field "Always allow HTML"



As we have currently a bot which is making it impossible to use the forum otherwise, that's how you can neuter it, at least until it is banned and its posts deleted.



As an aside, to avoid such problem in the future, I would recommend the Admins simply neuter HTML code in posts site-wide through the use of forumotion's forum administration tool. No one ever uses HTML in posts anyway.

If you wanted to stay anywhere near socially acceptable, you should have taken a left turn about three layers of WTF back.

I used "neuter" quite a lot in the OP...

Freudian slip, much?

@ILM126
Robo took care of it, though you might consider disabling the HTML as Harmony suggested in case another redirect-spambot ever shows up.
