    Wordpress plugin - Duplicate Posts Eraser has been inserting links to the bottom of my posts on my wordpress blog. Has anyone else had this same experience?

    Be real careful - I just disabled Duplicate Posts Eraser and then the links disappeared.

    I would be hacking the plugin to see exactly how they are inserting sneaky links :cool:

    Is there any agreement in the readme file that they will put credit link? maybe you can disable the link via plugin setting ?

    No - they are sneaky links inserted at the footer of every single link in the index.php template of wordpress.

    The anchor text of the links are "SEO" to some french SEO company.
    Its just a sneaky hack
