Trusting weblinks in Acrobat/Reader 7.0.5

If you have upgraded to Acrobat or Adobe Reader 7.0.5 you may have noticed if you ‘surf’ to a web address from within a PDF you will see a dialog box which requires you to select “Block” or “Allow”. I’ve been asked where this information is stored, and how can I manage the list.

Select Edit > Preferences > Trust Manager. Under the section Resource Access, select Change Site Settings. In the Managed Sites dialog box you can review and update current settings.

    I have a product that ‘cloaks’ PDf links so that affiliates cannot steal commissions by copying the link and pasting in their own affiliate-id into the url in their browser.

    Now, because Adobe display this warning box, everybody can see the full Url again and continue to rob affiliates of their commissions.

    I was doing the cloaking by displaying “Click Here” in the hover-text over all Hyperlinks. This worked really nicely until version 7.0.x came out.

    I don’t think it’s possible in a PDF to set the security to allow clicking of Urls without verification.. is it?

    Thanks,
    Sean K.
