Unwanted Links On Web Pages


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

While making some page presentation adjustments to my website, I came across a problem which I am hoping someone else has encountered, and consequently can help me with.

 

I was comparing the presentation of my pages between my pc and my partners' laptop to fine tune the pages presentation between the different screen sizes when some unwanted links appeared on the the laptop's browser but not on my pc. When I checked the browser source code, there was no code related to the link, it displayed as text, as it should, but the link exists. The unwanted link has picked up the  CSS link formatting attributes.

 

I contacted my ISP and they confirm the server side is fine, and they could not replicate the problem. A possible explanation they gave is, that the laptop's browser must have some undesirable plugin, but they are not sure what can be done to prevent this. The page has no input, just text, and all my other input fields throughout the site have been sanitized.

 

I suggested that encrypting the page transmissions with SSL might solve the problem, but they did not think this would the solution. If someone has encountered this type of issue and provide a solution I would be extremely grateful.

 

Thank You,

 

Derek

Hi HartleySan,

 

Sorry I'm only responding now, been out of circulation for a few days.

 

Here is the generated source for the corrupted page. I have also included  copies of the link URL, which is not, from what I can see generated in the page source.
