Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code  

Important Note: After discussions with various people I am no longer certain this mod upholds the values I usually support. It can be argued this mod is removing branding another developer had put into their mod, and like I wouldn't create a mod that removes branding from say DbTech mods, perhaps this mod goes too far.

I am not removing the mod for the time being but I am not supporting it any further either.

I would urge people who do not want to see Tapatalk signature in every post either purchase their plan or remove Tapatalk completely. I will not do any further work on this mod nor support it unless I get affirmative consent from Tapatalk to do so.

Sorry.

Tapatalk has recently decided to stop allowing most forum admins to disable their "Sent from my [Whatever] Using Tapatalk" signature spam from every message posted with Tapatalk. The only way to disable it now is to pay for a monthly account.

This mod is simple. Once installed it stops such signatures from being saved to the database and also scans all posts (as they are displayed) and removes them from any existing posts in your database.

It's extremely simple to use, there are no settings. Simply import the XML file and it is active immediately. Disable or uninstall the mod to stop it from working.

Should work for VB 3.7.x - 4.2.x, all versions.

Sorry no screenshots, nothing really to see.

Note, if you have the old version installed I suggest uninstalling it. You should have one or the other, not both.

New - Version 1.0.1 (product-tapatalksigblocktngbop5-101.xml) Changes:
Looks for "Sent from my..." instead of just "Sent from..." in last line and will delete it if it exists.

Please "Mark as Installed" if you use this.

Thanks for this product, Joe...and while I know you aren't debating the ethics involved, I had no internal moral dilemma...I didn't hesitate to install it once needed.

I did make a couple of minor changes:

1.) Since I had manually edited the posts to remove the sigs before deciding to install this product, I didn't need the plugin hooked at "postbit_display_complete" and I deleted that.

2.) I wanted any newlines before the spam sig to be removed also, so I changed the regex to:

I'm sorry I don't understand the question... maybe a screenshot would help understand what the issue is?

Why would a new post ever include the tapatalk signature?

Hey Joe,

I have access to Bulent's test site, and the issue is not a result of your product at all.

I think I have Bulent squared away now with additional code to remove all the Tapatalk signatures he is encountering.
