  • Make posted URLs anonymous so they do not refer back to my BB - Cloud

    Hi,

    Something of a newbie and some users on my board have asked if its possible to automatically make any URLs links posted on the BB anonymous so that the destination site in the link site can not tack the link back to the BB.

    Maybe something that identifies http in a post and replaces it with a refferel cleaner such as http://refclean.hlg.io/?

    Or an alternative?

    I'm on cloud.

    There is currently no way to do what you want though there are some caveats. Using a service such as you suggest is problematic for a number of reasons.

    Here is a feature request to add noreferrer headers to outgoing links: https://tracker.vbulletin.com/vbulle...sues/VBV-19216 . This would remove the referer header from the headers so the site you're linking to doesn't know where the link came from. If you are using HTTPS (as is default on Cloud) and link to a HTTP URL, this header is removed automatically.
