(Extra Spam Protection) Prevent Posting Of Links On User Group Per User Group Basis

vB Version: 4.0.3 Rating: (7 votes - 4.29 average) Installs: 55

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.

Thanks for your comment. Since I coded this, I have to say that I didn''t have a single spam link.

This mod looks perfect as a replacement for the Check4SPAM mod - thank you.

How does this mod identify links? Does it do a search on the text string, looking for "www." ".com", ".net" etc. or does it just prevent the user from using the Insert Link button?

Why not use Valter's Advanced Permissions hack? Doesn't this just do the same thing, stop people posting links when a criteria isn't met?

Yes, that would do the trick provided that links can be spotted when entered as plain text and not just as BBCode.

It prevents them from posting links in both ways.

Nope, mine is different which you could have noticed as well if you read the description/saw the screenshot under the first post.

Fantastic. Is the search string editable? I have a problem in that users may want to post questions about the .NET framework and this could be mistaken for a link.

I just installed this mod on a test boear and it seems to work fine. One thing though; in the AdminCP, the title of this mod is given as "Enable And Disable Flood Limit For User Groups" which is pretty confusing - could this be changed? Also, it would be useful if the title was a link back to this page.

Sorry about that. It was the title for my other mod. I had forgotten to change it.
