[SOLVED] Disable WebSnapr but keep url's

Postby nfear24 » Fri Apr 06, 2007 9:44 am

[quote user="Rubble"]I've been using zimbra for a couple of months and I can't recall

ever seeing it work successfully.[/QUOTE]
Ya it rarely ever displays the correct pages for me also. Usually its just a Websnapr logo or whatever. Kind of worthless to me when it works only 3% of the time.

[SOLVED] Disable WebSnapr but keep url's

ditto. It rarely works.

I checked out the websnapr site and couldn't find any real information on the company or a privacy policy. I personally do NOT want every URL emailed to me to be sent to some 3rd party, even if they did have a privacy policy. But I'm in the same boat as the OP, I want clickable links.
Zimbra: Please, please remove the stupid websnapr functionality from the core URL zimlet. Feel free to make a websnapr zimlet, just please release a URL zimlet that does what it's supposed to.

You should also vote on it. Your bug number in your post can be made into a link to the bug, easier for people to get to it and vote on it.;)

[SOLVED] Disable WebSnapr but keep url's

I tried a quick hack, and for me it works.

I hope it can be a quick workaround for others, so I uploaded it as an attachment to the bug.
(Tested with Zimbra OSS 4.5.4)

- Go to Zimbra Admin

- Zimlets

- disable the zimbra_url URL Zimlet

- undeploy it

- click on #deploy new'

- upload the following .zip file
http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/attachment.cgi?id=4519
I
removed the Thumbnails and just display the URL.
My point is security:
If you get a spam email and just move with the mouse over a link with your

unique spam-target id number in the URL, than Websnapr calls the URL, and the spammers start hitting you more,because they know that you are a real person reading the inbox and opening emails.
So for my user base I just have removed the thumbnail and display the URL which gives the user additional security info about a link before he clicks it (if a href and text is not the same).
P.S. In Firefox I had to clear the browser cache and re-logon to see the Zimlet update. (Through the admin 'View eMail' Link I got allways the most current version of the zimlet - while trying around)
P.P.S This version does not show URL parameters ?x=y in the Popup info.

Ifyou want them use the version below in the next post.

Tested in 4.5.3 Network edition on CentOS.

I've only found one problem:

Popup for a link having parameters does not show the parameters.

This is a security issue, though less of one than the websnapr functionality.

Example:
