Higley Antimormon Video popping up in the help pages for the learning how to use notes page

Postby rmerrill » Wed Sep 02, 2015 8:29 am

I was viewing the help topics for learning how to use the Notes feature and what I thought was an instruction video popped up. It was an anti-mormon video by Higley, His organization seems to have hacked into the LDS.org site. I don't know where else to report this but hoping that someone can get this to the tech people who manage the "Notes" pages.

To be more specific: this isn't a hack of LDS.org. The video you watched is on YouTube.com (perhaps embedded in an LDS.org page, but still on YouTube). When a video is over, YouTube will display links to several other videos which they think are related (just like the screen capture you showed). The owner of the original video has no control (as far as I can tell) over those links. In other words, there's nothing to be done (short of not using YouTube). I imagine the relevant folk know this (it's hard to believe they don't).

FWIW,

You can add ?rel=0 to the video's URL when embedding to keep it from showing related videos.
