Default Affiliate links gone for XLF Team Members

Hey! For all you XLF Team Members I now have the forum set up to where you should not see the Viglink affiliate links.

Words like ebay, amazon, sears, etc... should not produce ad links for you anymore.

Let me know if they do.

Not only do I still see Viglink affiliate links, but it is getting worse. Now all sorts of improbable words get changed to links to entirely unrelated eBay auctions: English place names, pub names, road designations, …

That's strange. Can you please send me a screenshot of this when it happens to you?

Wouldn't you just know it: it happened (particularly badly) a few days ago, and when I go and try to reproduce it, it doesn't happen. Damn!

Well, not 'damn'; it's a good thing, obviously. Just makes me look stupid. Maybe that's not so difficult?

OK, these links have started appearing in the thread that I posted as a test:
Vigilink Affiliate Links
The place name 'Shaftesbury' (in several places), the road designation 'A352', and the pub name 'Royal Oak' have all been converted to links to entirely unrelated eBay auctions (a Telecaster 'style' guitar, some gloves, and a whirlpool bath!).

I can' take screenshots right now, but I'll take some when I get home.

Folkie,

FWIW.

Using iOS on an iPad, I looked at your test thread (screenshots below). I’m not seeing any unintended links.
