I agree.  I spent a lot of time making Jewel Crafting lists and things all with Wowhead links and now they don't even have the popups.  This is annoying and we need the ability to turn the feature off.  Like someone else has said, if this feature persists I will be moving my guild off of guildportal.

I'm a paid subscriber.  I DO NOT want the external site warning on mywebsite.  I can't even begin to express my anger towards this new"feature".  Remove it.

I want this Feature gone NOW! This is total [bull waste]! I didnt pay for this crap, if this is the way GP has to do things im gonna leave this site. If this so called  " FEATURE" was in place when i was looking for a host site, i would have NOT picked GP.  Ive sent in a ticket, i would like to hear what GP is going to do.. so i know what direction i need to go.

Agreed!  this is unsatisfactory. It is not very cool to do this without letting the clients that pay your bills know at the least give us some kind of warning

This is complete BS!  At least give us something WE can post on our websites to let our guildies know what is going on.  Because right now the only thing i can think of to post is:

"Guildies, do to Guildportals inabilty to give us the web experience we want, we are currently looking at other hosting sites"

I've noticed it also affects any links in the Categorized Links content container as well.

I'm sure it will get ironed out soon.

Has anyone else experienced this with internal GP links other than mail?

Mine seems to waver between running fine, and having this pop up every time I click any link internal or external. It's not something I've noticed on sites other than mine, GP Admin Community seems to work fine. Is it something conflicting with my CSS maybe?

Either way, it's extremely frustrating to have to click this every time I move to a new thread/forum.
