  • restrict amount of spaces for location in profile?

    Is there a way to restrict the amount of spaces users can use in their profile?
    Some of my members are adding LONG distracting letters like the one below. If they could only enter in say 3 words then I wouldn't have this problem.

    Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at

      If you're comfortable in phpmyadmin, you could change field2 in the userfield table, from the current medium text setting to varchar and limit the number of characters to 25 or some other reasonable number.
