Limit Links In Signature
Mod Version: 0.5.0, by Alphawolf83 (Member) Alphawolf83 is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (6 votes - 4.67 average) Installs: 27
Released: 18 Nov 2007 Last Update: 18 Nov 2007 Downloads: 230
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

This version is for 3.6.x only, if you'd like to use it with 3.8.x, click here!


In short, this hack allows you to set a maximal number of allowed links in signatures for each user group. If the user is previewing or saving the signature with more links than allowed, it returns an error message with the current number of links and the allowed one.

Note that this hack does also have any effect when the user has a secondary (member) group. The permissions of users whose secondary (member) group is allowed to use more links than the primary group will be taken. So, if a user is in primary user group "Registered" with 2 links allowed and in secondary group "Verified" with 3 links allowed he is allowed to have 3 links in signature (if the user group option 'Allow Users to have Member Groups' is set to Yes).

The allowed number of links will be shown in the 'Signature Rules' box (if you do the template change).


File Uploads: 2
File Changes: 0
Template Changes: 1
Products to Install: 1
Time to Install: ~ 2 minutes

  • Configuration Options per user group
    • Maximal number of links in signature (int)


- Upload files from the upload folder
- Import the product via ACP > Manage Products > Import
- Do the template change (can be found within the ZIP file!)


Note that by default (after installation) the values are set to 0, means all user groups do not have any limitations unless you edit the permissions!

To set/edit the allowed number of signature links go to "Manage Usergroups", edit the desired usergroup by scrolling down to the "Signature" box where you'll find the new permission setting. Enter 0 to not limit the number of links. If you do not want to allow links in general, set the option 'Allow Link BBCode' to No.

It does not work with 3.7.2 - It didn't modify the MySQL database and after modifying it myself it didn't stick. Too tired to look deeper into it.

If this in no longer supported, someone should make a similar mod. I hope the reason no one did it yet is not "copyright", this fascist copyright can be tiring.

It's just a modification to make vB do something using open source material. Just update it & give credits to the original author!

First a huge Sorry goes out to everyone who had to be so patient to wait for me to update this modification!

I've been pretty busy the last months. I have updated it to vb 3.8.x now:
