  • [Forum] Skimlinks / Skimwords not displaying under VB 4.1.11 (ish)

    I have recently run through the creation of a skimlinks account and integrating it into my forum however I seem to have run into a few problems.

    While I test this I have enabled the functionality only for Guest and Administrator usergroups (all posts in all forums) however I had to look through about 15 threads (as Guest) to find a single Skimlinks link and as yet haven't found any Skimword links. This sounds like something in Skim itself so maybe the solution to that cannot be found here.

    However...

    I cannot get the Skim code to render correctly under the Admin account and this looks like an issue in VB. Following the guidance here:



    It shows that when using the admin account the skim code is not correctly inserted into the page which therefore explains why no links show up.

    Any ideas?

    As a possibly related aside, I enabled Skim a few months ago for a matter of hours - it was all working fine then. I have also checked that the plugin is enabled.

    EDIT : I have also checked that the profile option to disabled skim is set to enabled

    EDIT2 : Checking the markup generated when accessing the site with the Admin account I found:

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    	var noskimlinks = true,
    		noskimwords = true,
    		skimlinks_product = 'vbulletin';
    
    	vBulletin.events.SkimlinksActivate.fire();
    
    </script>
    For the guest account the boolean JS vars are false - so it seems the skim plugin is not properly setting the output

    - - - Updated - - -

    After a little debugging I have found the cause of the Admin account not being able to see any Skimlinks

    As detailed above I am testing at the moment so Skim is only enabled for Guests and Admin usergroups - However my admin account is also a member of the Facebook Users group. This was causing the plugin to set my enabled state to false.
