The [USML] Advanced Link Posting Options Version 1.1.0 allows you to prevent users from posting any kind of links in their signatures and/or in the forums (e.g. "" AND "") until they have reached a certain post count or a certain amount of reputation. This is basically a combination of a couple of modifications that have already been released, but I've added some new features.

  • Exclude certain usergroups from the restrictions put in place.
  • Prevent links being posted until users:
    • Have reached a certain post count
    • Have reached a certain reputation amount
  • Instructions in readme.html
  • Instructions in readme.html
  • Instructions in readme.html

To ensure your settings are set correctly...
  1. Verify Enable Modification is set to Yes
  2. Verify Enable Post Count Restriction (signature) is set to Yes
  3. Verify the user(s) are not in the Excluded Usergroups (signature)
To find out if there's a conflicting modification, the only thing you can do is disable each of your modifications one by one to see which one is interfering.

Also, be sure that they're posting links in their signature, and not at the bottom of their posts as some users try to get around things by doing that as well. If that's happening, that's what the other settings are for

Its working fine now tested with new test account Just came with Facebook Registered users are able to post link right after registration i will check other setting and usergroup permission

Installed & working


Nominated mod of the month

Seriously, this is replacing 4 other modifications (maybe a 5th as I track things down)

Does this also prevent people from adding a Home Page in their profile? (If so, this may replace a 6th modification)

In the "Excluded Forums (forum) - Here you can choose which forums you want to exclude from the forum link restrictions." section how do you exclude forums? All mine are listed and I see no way to select them? And links can still be posted.

Great plugin (I really don't know why vBulletin doesn't offer such options in their default code though).

I did notice a rather confusing mistake though.

On the settings screen, under "Post Count Settings (forum)", the description says: "Set the minimum number of posts your users must reach before they are allowed to post links in their signatures. "

... but it should be:

"Set the minimum number of posts your users must reach before they are allowed to post links in the forums. "

Small mistake, but can be very confusing!

I love this mod and it is very helpful to reduce spam links, however, it is preventing new users from posting photos of their bulldogs.

Is there a way to remove the attach or img bbcode from being a part of this?

Simple, easy to install and should slow the huge amount of spammers down enough to catch them.

You are right. If you installed this mod your Rss Robot Scheduled Task manager will not run. You will have to run your Rss feed manually every time. I had same problem i have to uninstall this mod.
