    How can I disallow new members from creating links?
    Seems spammers only make one/few spam posts and then move on, how can I disallow them from creating active links?

      Ok if you do not want to moderate all new users I found a solution to those willing to modify a mod. Here is the mod :

      Now the default setting is for 15 posts before using links etc.... to get around this goto plugins then edit the 2 parts of this plugin there change 15 to a number of your choice since my spammer post then leave I have it set at 3 to be safe.

      Now you need to go to language and phrases and replace the default phrase from " 1. You are only allowed to post URLs to other sites after you have made 15 posts or more. " to a phrase of your choice as well or otherwise your users will think they need to post 15 times which isn't the case if you modified the plugin in the 2 parts that are there in the plugin manager.

      With this now I still use no spam as well as the modified plugin. I have tested it only on 3.7.3 PL1 so not sure if it will work on older version but should I think. Hope this helps others.
