Parasite JavaScript Code

    Hi,

    There is a JavaScript code in my publications. There are not visible from the administration.
    This code seems to add a js onclick on all my links with an affiliation programm :

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://s.skimresources.com/js/wordpress.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var skimlinks_pub_id = "725X584219"
    var skimlinks_sitename = 'reverdevoyage.wordpress.com';
    skimlinks();
    </script>

    (http://skimlinks.com/ and webgains )

    I used to think that it came from my theme (suburbia). So I changed the theme but the JavaScript code is still here.

    Do you have any solution ? I don't want to give money to somebody through an affiliation that I did not choose.

    Thank you,

  2. If you're asking about Blog url: http://reverdevoyage.wordpress.com/, Javascript would be stripped out and rendered inoperable.

    There are not visible from the administration.

    If you're seeing them somewhere on the page(s), it's possible you have something in your browser causing it.

    WordPress.com has been running advertising on our free hosted blogs since 2006. Many bloggers do not know this because despite the fact they ticked the box required to get a free blog, they did not read the ToS. Many also do not read the advertising entry in the support documents after registering their username and blog(s). Also note that as the ads do not display to us when we are logged in, and as many use browsers with ad blockers when logged out, they may not realize they are there at all. I think what you are seeing is WordPress.com generated advertising code.

    Note: To support the service (and keep free features free), we sometimes run advertisements from partners like Google, Sharethrough and SkimLinks. We try hard to only run them in limited places. If you would like to completely eliminate ads from appearing on your blog, we offer the No-Ads Upgrade. http://support.wordpress.com/no-ads/

    In fact the js code is visible when I visit the blog from a browser which is not connected to my account.
    When I am logged in, the code is invisible.

    I accept to have display ads, but affiliation programm is not the same.
    Moreover, I don't see this code in other wordpress.com's blogs.
    For example, this blog does not have the JS code for affiliation programm
    http://charliehebdo.wordpress.com/

    This is an example of my problem (http://reverdevoyage.wordpress.com/2012/10/19/faire-des-economies-tout-au-long-de-son-sejour-de-vacances-2/) :
    pour <a href="http://www.thomascook.fr/voyage/voyager-pas-cher.html">voyager moins cher</a>. Durant l’été, le sud de la France ne manque pas d’atouts avec les stations balnéaires de la côte d’Azur. Pour les vacances d’hiver et les séjours

    Do you have an idea ?

    Posts I published after changing my theme don't have this code. But when I put to draft an old post which have the code, and publish it again with an other title the code appears... :/

    Maybe it is a cache memory from my publication... ?

  5. I flagged this thread for a Staff response when I posted above.

    Well, yes, it is. If this is part of an ad program inserted by WP, there really isn't much you can do to eliminate it other than the No-Ads upgrade. That fact that it is not visible when logged in is another indicator that it is a legitimate ad venture.

    Thank you very much, I will try to republish my content with a totally different title.
    It might work... WP recognize the alias and put a -2 at the end of the permalink. I hope this is a cache.

    And an advice, do not use the suburbia theme ! :D

    Thank you notawoodpecker. :)
    If it comes from WordPress, I may move to an other solution. I wait and see for the staff answer.

    Regarding what I posted above please note that Staff have yet to confirm what I suspect ie. I think what you are seeing is WordPress.com generated advertising code.

    Thanks anyway for your time and your help.

  11. I hope you are clear on the fact that Staff will respond to this thread when they can and then you will have definitive answer.

  12. Would you please give us a link to a post where this is happening?

  13. Oh, sorry, I see you have above. One second.

  14. Yes that is WordPress.com ad code per the link above. It is unrelated to themes so changing themes is not going to make a difference. And yes it is removed with purchase of the No Ads upgrade.

  15. @Jonburke
    Thanks for the confirmation.
