  • How to deal with Abuses of signatures

    We have seen that signature can lead to many strange URL's when registered user is logged in.
    How to prevent this and delete signature from all profile content?
    Is this good to do?

    You can manage user signature settings from the Usergroup permissions manager. There are a number of settings for signatures that can help you control the content used in user signatures.

    AdminCP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit The afffected user group -> Scroll down to "Signature Permissions".

    I don't think you can control signature permissions on a 'per user' basis. If you have troubled users that are abusing signatures, you could create a duplicate of the main user group and then just disable signatures for that group. Anyone who breaks the signature rules can be moved into the restricted group, thus removing some or all of the signature permissions as you deem fit.

    The opinion on "Is this good to do?" Is up to each forum owner. We do use some restrictions, but it's generally not a problem for us.
