A Warning to Anyone Who Uses Dragon Naturally Speaking...

3 replies
Just found out that "nuan_ria_plugin" has been inserted into the bottom of every single post and page. According to others, you aren't asked if you want this plugin to be installed (don't think I was either, although I can't quite remember), which makes it even more annoying.

I'm pretty sure that it isn't malicious in any way, but it can certainly mess up the formatting of your site, which is what happened to mine.

Check your html to see if it's there.

Just a heads up.

    I think what you are having problems rich is a plugin for "rich text" - which would interfere with formatting if you copy it directly to your site.

    It's like copy/pasting from a Worddoc where you get some funny symbols that show up.

    the "nuan" is for Nuance that produces DNS and there's more info about the plugin here

    When pasting to your site you want to copy/paste text copy rather than rich text.

      Kay - I've found that once it is on your computer, it will add the code to every WP post or page no matter what you do. Rich text isn't any worse or better ;-)

      It adds the code even when you aren't pasting.

      I save each post/page and make sure all is well, then I go into HTML and remove the code and save again from HTML view...

      It is a PITA and I probably wouldn't have spent the $$ on DNS, had I but known! LOLOL

        One of the posts in the link I posted above says it is a plugin related to Firefox and refers to it as a "bug" in DNS12. I use version 11 and haven't encountered it.

        The link below might help trace the plugin so you can disable it. Might work - worth a try.

        Better yet - here's something about it from DNS
