Not Supported Uses Plugins  

Since VB4 has some build in spam guards for specific sites/users who are widely known for spamming, I felt that it didn't help stop any of the small time and newbie spammers and so I decided to make this mod.

This mod doesn't allow users to post any form of a link without achieving so many posts first. So if they want to posts tons of videos, ftp, images, websites, game servers ... etc this will stop most of them, possibly all. So wether is a whole new thread or a reply in another thread it will stop them. This also work on quicc reply aswell.

I don't have many games installed so the only game with a server I ws able to test was those of the Unreal Tournament series. If you find other kind of links that need to be stopped please let me know.

Z - X Posts Before Links:
  • all options are in your Admin CP
  • no template editing needed

Installation:
  1. Import product-z_xpbl.xml
  2. Goto --> Admin CP --> Settings --> Options --> Z - X Posts Before Links and make your settings.

Remember to clicc install.
Version:
1.4 Added Email stopping
1.3 Multiple Usergroup Filtering (added to 1.1)
1.2 A Bunch of New Features (New Product -> Z - Total Link Control)
1.1 Bug fix for People getting Parse Errors
1.0 Initial Version

Actually you can. Remove all instants of automatically parsing links and disable all BBCodes that involve links.

Can u add a Spam Words Field...we define in this field a set of 'unwanted' words, while you are parsing the text, if any of these words is found in the text, post will be set for moderation...

Thx again.

I removed the email check from the code because all it was doing was checking for "@". Many people like to type in @ in their posts. But otherwise very good MOD, thanks.

Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. I installed and under Setting>options>"Z - X Posts Before Links" I have:
- Post Amount: 15
- Affected Usergroups: Registered Users

I registered as a user and in my first post I'm able to post links, any idea what I did wrong or what I didn't do?

Thanks!

Is there any way to make this just work on certain usergroups?

I want to limit potential sponsors to not be able to post links until they are moved to the sponsor usergroup.

Edit: Oops, just realized it supports that Thanks!
