    Can you figure out how this guy did this overlay...

    Go to the site below...go to the bottom like you were going to submit a comment but dont click the comment box or the submit button. The whole thing has an overlay that links to the URL in the last comment that was written. The "List building automation". No one can make a comment because no matter where you click in the comment area it will click you over to his URL. How did he do this and is it possible to remove it/disable it so one can make an actual comment?

    only thing i noticed unusual was that he hadn't closed the link </a> like all of the others had- wondering if there was something in the page code that included the comments area-
    fwiw- using firefox and the comment area/box is working okay- either some oddity or something was fixed

    ahh they did change something. they fixed the loophole that was allowing people to post comments with links. Ugh that sucks! Yesterday there was a whole invisible link over the comments section that whenever you clicked anywhere near the comment box or the box itself it would click the guys link. Guess he ruined it for everyone because he was all over the place

    I think they fixed it because I gave my friend the code to just redirect videos to whatever URL you wanted and he went crazy with it. The way you did it was just normal HTML with tags within the tags so when they filtered out the nested tags they'd save and display the tags you wanted. Javascript too.
