I have. Its quite common in wikis for spammers to post links to their sites in <div> tags that are hidden using the style attribute, this is done as GoogleBot and other search engine spiders will read the links and the spammers site gets higher rated because reputable sites ar linking to it. And the site admins often don't notice because its invisible to them.Highway of Life wrote:Right, though I've never seen this abusedSamG wrote: The risk being taken in "harmless" tags is in the attributes, particularly the event handlers.
Off Topic: There needs to be some way off fixing link spam, I mean if I post a link here should that link get points on a search spider just because I put it on area51?
I think there may be an attribute you can set, something like rel="nofollow" not entirely sure, does phpBB use anything like that, or are the plans to do so?
Can custom BB Codes overide inbuilt ones? i.e. if I add a custom BB code for URL, will it overide the inbuilt URl. (me may go check on my copy )
Anyway back on topic, what IS the topic now? Its switched so many times I'm truely confused.
