      Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

      I don’t have any jscripts allowed except askwoody.com and all seems to be fine here – has been for ages.

      cheers, Paul

        Good for you but that’s really not the point 😉 Not everyone blocks scripts.

        It’s more about allowed content (3rd party script with the related image no longer visible), and what happens after deletion/editing of that content (compare with this topic, where the link is active and visible). So maybe it’s a site/bbPress security issue.

          I was suggesting that the issue may not be with the AskWoody script, but without more detail it’s hard to know.

          cheers, Paul

          The good news is that these new sites only appear on these two posts and not others AskWoody. Other external sites should not be trying to load (inject?) and execute scripts unless requested, how are these scripts getting on AskWoody?

            It’s showing in this topic because of the URL I added above, that URL was I believe part of an earlier Edit or the original post in the other topic.

        I can vouch for the same @satrow is seeing. I’m using NoScript.

      An interesting and somewhat amusing article regarding this word press error by John Hughes in his Elegant Themes Blog  https://www.elegantthemes.com/blog/tips-tricks/how-to-fix-the-are-you-sure-you-want-to-do-this-error-in-wordpress

      His alignment of the planets reason is a hoot.

    Please follow the -Lounge Rules- no personal attacks, no swearing, and politics/religion are relegated to the Rants forum.
