foss4g 2008 abstracts leading to 3rd party redirect

Reported by: hamish Owned by: sac@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: SysAdmin Keywords: foss4g, website
Cc: jmckenna@…



while looking at an abstract for a paper given at foss4g 2008 (in a browser that wasn't running NoScript..), after a moment the page got redirected to some 3rd party website. I take it this is not the intended behaviour.

any abstract will do, e.g. go to the main 2008 page and pick one of the invited speakers. remove the last /nnn number to take you to the abstract instead of the PDF download.

(direct link not given to avoid helping promote the search engine page score)

It seems abstracts from 2009 are also {af|in}fected.. :-(

all "abstract" links here seems to be affected:

I can't seem to find an example 2009 link with this problem.

Resolution: fixed

The widget used for rating abstracts ( apparently expired and we co-opting the web page instead of playing nice.

I've removed this code now and things look better. Please confirm and re-open if still an issue.
