  • [Forum] User Profile fields and url's

    Hi vBulletin Team,

    on our board we see people using the user profile fields like "location" or "job" to enter an url of their webpage. This kind of advertisement is annoying and depending on the url also risky.
    We search for a method to:

    1. "Forbid using URL's in profile fields" or
    2. "Allow Moderators/SModerators to edit those fields in the modcp

    Is there a way - also if file changes are needed - to do this?

    Kind regards

    1. When you have profile fields available for text input then it is not possible to forbid URLs by default. A modification could do that, there needs to be a a kind of URL check before the fields get saved.

    2. That should be possible when you have the correct settings set for your moderators under AdminCP -> Usergroups -> Administrator Permissions -> Can Administer Users.
    No private support, only PM me when I ask for it. Support in the forums only.
