    So, apologies if I've missed an announcement about this and it's totally innocuous, but:

    I note that at the bottom of most WWP forum pages there is now an iframe which loads content from

    My questions:

    - Is this intentional?

    - Doesn't it present a risk that use of WWP could be tracked based on users' Google accounts?

    Danke shoen.

    Content looks like this (possibly-identifying info X-ed out):

    <iframe name="oauth2relayXXXXXXXX" id="oauth2relayXXXXXXXXX"
    style="width: 1px; height: 1px; position: absolute; top: -100px;"></iframe>

    I see no such iframe on this page, but then I never signed up for or logged into WWP via Google

    Me neither

    It's not visible in the HTML source code - you have to look at the live page, as amended by Javascript.

    E.g. in Chrome do 'inspect element' and scroll down to the bottom.

    All I see at the bottom are a heap of colorpicker DIVs. You'll probably need to provide moar context.

    The bottom of the document looks like this to me:

    <[B]iframe[/B] name="oauth2relayXXXXXXXXX" id="oauth2relayXXXXXXX" [B]src=";forcesecure=1"[/B] style="width: 1px; height: 1px; position: absolute; top: -100px;"></iframe>
    <div id="fb-root" class=" fb_reset"><div style="position: absolute; top: -10000px; height: 0px; width: 0px;"><div><[B]iframe[/B] name="fb_xdm_frame_https" frameborder="0" allowtransparency="true" scrolling="no" id="fb_xdm_frame_https" aria-hidden="true" title="[B]Facebook Cross Domain Communication Frame[/B]" tab-index="-1" src="[B];channel_path=%2Fcommunity%2Ffb_channel.php%3Fl%3Den_US%26fb_xd_fragment%23xd_sigXXXXXXXXXX&amp;"[/B] style="border: none;"></iframe></div></div><div style="position: absolute; top: -10000px; height: 0px; width: 0px;"><div></div></div></div>
    <div class="xenTooltip " style="position: absolute; top: 1647.28125px; left: 983px; display: none;"><span class="arrow"></span>Like</div>
    <div id="AjaxProgress" class="xenOverlay" style="top: 0px; left: 0px; position: fixed; display: none;"><div class="content"><span class="close"></span></div></div>
    As you can see, there's a Facebook iframe in there too, and they both include WWP in the query string.

    I just checked in a browser that I don't have the "Anti-social list" Adblock Plus filter and I see the iframe there. Sorry I forgot I had that, it's from

    This is on the "WWP - Classic" theme - I should have mentioned that.

    ... only without the bold tags which of course don't work inside code tags. Oops.

    The additional bonus of blocking all those silly social sharing button iframes is the memory saved from not loading all their fucking javascript libraries.
