  • Disallow link spamming !

    I have a ton of link spamming on my forum. Is there an option to say unless you have say 100 posts, you cannot include any links in your post. If I have that, 90% of my spams (which are link spams) are gone!

    Same goes for signature, to disable it, or to say it will show if you have 100 posts.

    Please help.

    You can restrict the signature permission in the same way as this:

    But there is no group permission for links in posts so you can't do this for links.

      Thanks, Jake. I will use the sig option. FYI, I support over 20 forums (one VB, the rest phpbb/phpnuke), and talking from experience, these people are after links (otherwise their content is useless). So if links are not allowed or turned by VB into non-linked text, they will (hopefully) get the hint and go away.

      So may I highly recommend that option for future VB's.
