(Extra Spam Protection) Prevent Posting Of Links On User Group Per User Group Basis
Mod Version: 1.00, by borbole (Coder/Designer) borbole is offline
Developer Last Online: Oct 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.3 Rating: (7 votes - 4.29 average) Installs: 55
Released: 04 Jun 2010 Last Update: 23 Jun 2010 Downloads: 340
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files Translations  

This is another mod I coded for my own forum and thought to submit it here in the hope tha other users might find an use for it as well. Lately my forum has been hits with a lot of spam posts. It seems like they bypass every single prevention at the registration which leads me to believe that those who register are human spammers and once they pass through all the anti spam restrictions at the registration, the spam bots take over to post at the forums.

Anyway, this hack will allow you to make posting of links allowed/disallowed on a usergroup per usergroup basis.

Installation: upload the includes folder to your forum root folder and then import the link_gids.xml file inside the mod package to Plugins&Products in the Acp of your forum.

After you install it, go to your Acp->Usergroups->Usergroup Manager->{ Chose the group that you want to prevent from posting links->Click Edit Usergroup} and under Post / Thread Permissions, you will see a new setting that says: Prevent From Posting Links, set that to yes.

For more information, please have a look at the attached screenshot below.

Instead of disallowing users from posting links based on usergroup, I think a feature to limit users (below x number of posts) from posting url would be great.
