Possible External Link Removal
It is odd that we link to a page called "http://www.iomagic.org/fsc/pleasedontlinkheredirectly.htm".
It is also odd that we link to a page about a popup remover that itself contains a popup!
- Yes, very odd. Worldmaster0
= the history of pop-ups == hi
Hi, I was just curious if anyone knows when the first pop-up was designed. I'm doing a project on pop-ups but every time I search for the history, I seem to get history of pop-up books. I would really appreciate any information I could get. Thanks!
A new plague of pop-ups on Wikipedia
A plague of pop-ups on Wikipedia has recently appeared where underlined blue text that at first seems to be a wikilink takes you to an expensive competition for an iPad. Presumably Wikipedia is addressing this. Where can I go for more information on helping to stamp out this menace, please? (I see that even this entry by me has inadvertently exacerbated this problem, with a link to "ClickCompare"). Arrivisto (talk) 12:38, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
I have severe problems with pop ups (not with Wikipedia but with other sites) and I followed the external link to the Wikihow article on pop ups. This highly recommends the free download of SparkTrust. This program appears to do the common trick pretending to be free and claiming that it finds extensive problems and then requiring you to register (and presumably pay but I did not proceed that far) to remove the faults. Several reviews say SparkTrust is a Trojan. Is Wikipedia linking to malware? Dudley Miles (talk) 18:29, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
