Link Anonymizer v1.02a & 1.03, 1.04, 1.05.3 & 1.10

Author: MarcoH64

vBulletin Version: 3.5.1

Warning: Version 1.02 might create double anonym links if you edit a post multiple times. Version 1.03 has been reported not to be working for some people. Please read posts in this thread if you plan on using this hack, until i had time to look into this.
v1.05 and higher should be the best versions
1.10 Is an updated version of 1.05.3 and is considered a stable release. Only version 1.10 will be supported now.

Description:
This Product will add a self configurable anonymising link to all external urls in posts.

Installation:
Install the XML-file as Product.

Configuration:
vBulletin Options->Link Anonymizer :
  • Local Addresses
Local addresses are not anonymized. If you leave this option blank, the value for vBulletin Options Cookie Domain will be used. Do not use a http:// prefix.

If you start the name with a dot (.mydomain.com) all server addresses ending with this will be considered local. If you want to add mulitple domain/servernames, seperate them by a single space.


Link to a anonymizer function. Use preceding / if needed. Other Usable Anonymizers:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


  • Allways anonymize Unparseble URLs (* New in version 1.10)
Please click install if you are using this hack.

I would call it unethical, but i doubt that it is illegal (might depend on your location).

Not for me, the anonymous part at the beginning of the link repeats itself 4 times.

This has the same WYSIWYG editor issue as Active Link Security hack does/did.

When editing a post using Enhanced Editor, after the first edit it adds the "http://anonym.to/?" again and again each time you edit the post. Edit the post 4 times and you get:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Nice, works like a charm! If anyone has any additional anonymiser links to add, they should reply here. This would allow others to use one of their choice for faster loading.

If you are viewing an old post, then this could be. The ink is already 4 times stored in the database, and is added 1 more time when viewing, see the queries in the top to resolve this.

Try making a new post (or edit an old one) and it shouldn't happen anymore.

PS Which plugins you have now for the product, and which ones are active?
