Brought to you by BirdOPrey5

Update Version 1.7 -
  • Usergroup permissions now work for primary OR secondary (additional) usergroups.
  • You now check a box to choose usergroups- no more looking up specific IDs.
  • Added option to delete homepage link of any users who get perm banned.
  • Official Mod Thread now on Qapla.com.

Update Version 1.5 - This upgrade will disable links to homepages for users who may have entered a homepage before this mod was installed. As usual it will also block new members from entering a homepage based on the rules you set (post count or usergroup.)


This mod will remove the option to allow members to post a "Homepage" URL in their profile based on post count and/or usergroup id. In addition you can disable it for everyone if you want.

This is often requested because some admins feel some members join their forum only to place links to their own pages and never contribute to the forum. This will require users attain a minimum post count before posting- or stop them from using a homepage altogether.

You may override these settings by specifying immune usergroups- usually admins and maybe mods.

This has been tested on 4.0.8, 4.1.11, and 4.1.12. It should work on other 4.0/4.1 versions as well. It will not work on 3.8, I have a 3.x version available in the 3.8 mods section.

If you have a heavily customized style then it is possible this mod will not work at all- it works based on automatic template edits and if the right default code isn't there nothing will happen. This is not a "bug." If you have a customized style try it first, if it doesn't work see the manual edits in Post #12 of this thread.

Install as normal, full instructions included in text file inside zip.

Contains: No files to upload, 4 plugins, 2 phrases, some new options.

You can change the default messages by editing the two phrases.

See screenshots for details.

I see what the issue is... I will work on it... Until/unless the member with the existing homepage link updates their profile the existing link will stay.

I will see if I can make a change so it can pro-actively remove homepage links for people who set it before the mod was installed.

Thanks for pointing this out.

OK... Updated to version 1.5... it will now block homepage links for people who may have entered one before you installed this mod and who wouldn't be allowed to have one under your new "rules."

A Request, can you please make a mod like this for user albums , visitor messages and some other minor things? so that I can completely disable those spammers from posting any links of their nasty sites even on their profiles..?

Great work by the way ..

Albums and visitor messages, PMs, and such can be controlled by usergroup permissions coupled with a promotions system so that when they reach 10 (or whatever) posts they are given extra permissions.

A quick outline to implement this...

Assuming your Registered Users group is the "normal" permissions you want everyone to have...

Go to your Usergroup Manager -> Add A New Usergroup... choose to copy the permissions from your Registered Users group, so that will make your "New Group" identical to "Registered Users."

Now go to Registered Users and disable visitor messages, albums, attachments, PMs, anything you want to disable for new members.

(You might want to close your board for this so active members don't get upset their permissions went away for a short time,..)

Now in Admin CP go to Usergroups -> Promotions -> Add a New Promotion
Usergroup: Registered Users
Reputation: 0
Days Registered: 0
Posts: 10 (or whatever you choose)
Promotion Strategy: Posts
Reputation Comparison Strategy: (ignored - doesn't matter)
Move to Usergroup: Set this to the New Group you just created.

OK... now the "hard" work is done but your users are still all in "Registered Users" because promotions are run from a scheduled task... so we want to force that to run now...

In Admin CP -> Scheduled Task Manager -> User Promotions -> Click on "Go"
This will promote all your existing registered users who have enough posts to your New group so they will have the same permissions from when you started.

And now going forward all new members will start off with limited permissions. They will automatically be promoted within 1 hour of reaching any minimum post number you set (10 in my example.)

Is there a way or a mod to just make the banned usergroup unable to use the homepage option? I like to ban the fake users created by bots. When they start an account, their casino or DUI homepage tells me that I should ban them, but I would also like them to be deprived of that link after I ban them. Thanks.

That's a good idea, I will try to include that the next time I update this mod.

Sounds good. I'll definitely take it. Other smart VB owners will too. No point in having 3 spammers a day create accounts without banning them.

** Tagged** And will be installing. Would love to see the same thing included in this mod, but for the prevention of URL links in signatures.

I do know there are some already out there, or at least there was, but I would prefer the one mod to do it.

Any plans on doing this, please?


Many Thanks.

Disabling links in signatures would be a very different mod. Disabling signatures completely is a possibility.

Disabling links in signatures is what I was requesting. not the latter.

Thanks for your reply.
