WordPress Google +1 Button - Advanced Plugin, Includes Redirection
[resolved] sneaky advertising with (5 posts)

    This plugin initially seemed decent... added the Google +1 to the site.

    I had it up for a few weeks before I noticed that it added this sneaky little ad at the bottom of each page in a font that was hard to see: "Google plus one provided by free online casino" with a link to http://online-casino.eu.com/.

    There was no option for turning this off. I found this to be a very deceptive way of embedding a link on my site, which I didn't appreciate. I removed it immediately and gave a 1-star ranking.

    You must not be using my plugin - it doesn't have any ads of any kind in the code. There's not even a link to my website on the admin settings page.

    Please be careful in the future about knowing which plugin you're using before you submit something like this to the WordPress.org forums.

    I'd really appreciate it if you could acknowledge that the advertisement link did not come from my plugin.

    Thanks!
    Jacob

    P.S. Let me know if there's anything else concerning my plugin that I can assist you with.

    I found this in the plug-in file:

    "http://online-casino.eu.com"

    inside

    "wp-google-plus-one/lib/standard.txt "

    I admit, I probably made the same mistake as the above poster, the code I posted was inside "wordpress google plus one button" instead of "wordpress google +1 button".

    I've deactivated the other plug-in and installed yours. Sorry for the inconviences.

    This plug in does NOT contain the advertiser code mentioned above!
