Agreed. It was the plugins that got my setup...

Point is, the Avant wiki itself cannot be downloaded, and after review, is completely clean (verified myself). So a little unsure as to where he's picked this "infection" up.

As for WordPress, if setup correctly, it's as safe as any other blogging system.

Sorry, I'm not buying it... unless there's some big misunderstanding. However, I no longer trust Wordpress... I had a Wordpress installation on my site once, not even active, just a few posts, and a month later I go to it... and there's hidden links to tons of malicious and porn sites, within the HTML source. There were also tons of files and new folders with lots of code in them. I think Wordpress' plugin system is a little too convenient for hackers.

What I want to know is how do you download the Avant wiki?

Re: Wiki and Blog redirects

Can you post the EXACT URL you downloaded? (the Wiki is clean, so are the files provided by it so I'm interested in knowing what's going on)

I just disabled the meta redirect code so it's now using only PHP to do the redirecting and it seems to be working fine. I'll keep an eye on it though.

And I actually think phpBB does it this way because of a problem with some webservers.

You can disable it in IE's options aswell, but again, if you're going to do that, you'd need to know what you were doing (otherwise, why do it?)

I think it is easily understood. If that page stays, click the link. I don't know of any browsers that don't support meta redirection though although I believe you can disable it in Opera, but if you've gone and done that, I would hope you understood what you are doing.

So it can't be renamed to something more simple like "If you dont get redirected, click here" ?

Re: Wiki and Blog redirects

by André » Wed Mar 18, 2009 4:01 pm

That's just part of phpBB. That page is used to count the number of clicks.

"If your browser does not support meta redirection please click HERE to be redirected."

Isn't it a bit confusing for non technical people?

Looks like it's done now - good job admins!

(But where are the links for the portable versions...?)
