Stop Spam Links 1.2 Gold

As of 3.8 this mod seems to have lost some/all of it's functionality depending on your vb settings. If anyone wishes to build on this mod, please feel free to as I do not have the time anymore.



What does this hack do?

This hack will replace a users entire post with a predefined message that you can edit in the adminCP should the user's post contain a TLD such as .de .com etc. This will only affect people in usergroups of your choice. By default only usergroup 1 is selected (Meaning Guests).

If you enter a usergroup ID, those user's will never be able to post links as long as they are a member of that group.

If the user's usergroup ID is not entered, then you can use a minimum postcount value which all users need to meet in order to post links.

----------------------------
Example: You enter usergroupID 2 (registered members). All registered members will not be able to post links.

You enter 5 for the postcount. Registered members will not be able to post links. Everyone else will need 5 posts before they can post links.
-----------------------------
Example2: You enter 1 for usergroupID (guests). No guest will be able to post links.

You enter 5 for the postcount. Everyone, except for guests, will need 5 posts before they can post links. Guests will never be able to.
-----------------------------

Cool, glad that worked. I didn't change the hook, just a variable... I used $value as one of the variables, although I didn't deem it a big deal. Changed that to something else to prevent that conflict

When the user Previews a post
the most irritating part for me is when spammers register to spam the members using PMs, and this modification is going to solve my problem.

I'll try it, and give you a GO (installed) once tested and found working

Thank you for the efforts.

Hey, it's working nice..
i just thought there should be an option to change the whole message, or just replace the URL entered with a ***** instead of taking the whole message out.

A member ( trusted one ) just had his post edited, he only used SMILIES from the images listed in the forum. I asked for the post before being edited so i can study where possible it was recognized a URL.

thanks again

simple modification

hello
I was interested in filtering links in PMs. so i modified the code (deleted the rest and kept the pm section) and replaced the search criteria to this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

the original post will be updated ( links replacements ) if found matching :

domain.com
or
any other format (e.g, http://www.domain.com ) that includes the above link as part of it. Indeed, it will capture (.ae, .ca, and all country specific domains ).

The next step,
is to allow using the forum URL in posts (or PMs).
( u know members usually tell each other about their posts)


Sorry for my 3-in-a-row posts.

Cheers

I'm a total preg_match noob. Everytime I look at those it makes my head hurt.

What exactly is it looking for here. I don't see what the criteria are.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

From what I can guess it's searching for "www", and then any combination of 2 letters after a " . " ?

Just wanted to let people know, if you have problems with spammers who register on your site and they try to post links to sell crap, this mod stops 'em dead in their tracks. I get at least 2-3 live humans a month, they register on my site just to post links to sell stuff. This has worked each and every time.

Now if I could just find a way to physically reach out and grab these a-holes by the neck, now that would make my day.

Ok just to make sure that we're on the same page:

When you enter a usergroupid (like 2 for registered members) all registered members will not be able to post links. They will get the spam message.

The postcount is for all usergroups that you didn't add to the usergroupid field above it.


So if you put in usergroupid: 2

Post count: 10

That means everyone in usergroup 2 cannot post links - ever.

If the member is not a member of usergroup 2 then he must have 10 posts before he can post any links.
