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.

thanks, it's installed and working fine on new signups. However, the homepage link is still showing on previously registered users. Any way to remove it from them with one fell swoop?

Version 1.5 should be hiding the link even if previously entered- can I get a link to your site- to a page with the problem?

Personally my favorite mod above all.
I simply love it when spam bots come and beat the registration mods i have but fail in the homepage url.
Simple and sweet. LOVE IT.

Updated to Version 1.7

Includes FreshPrince's suggestion to delete Homepages of (perm) banned users.
Also updated code to work with primary or secondary groups.
Also made it easier to pick immune usergroups.

The code will look something like, but not exactly, this:

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

To disable it for everyone change type="text" to type="hidden", change value="{vb:raw bbuserinfo.homepage}" to value="" and change {vb:rawphrase let_other_visitors_know_url} to your own disabled message, like: This option has been disabled.

To block it until a set number of posts is reached is a little more difficult. Replace the text above with:

First you need a condition:

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

But remember this won't be your exact code so make sure you keep your customizations, you really just need to alter the code in red.

Change the number 10 in the if condition to whatever minimum value of posts you want.
I have installed this on 4.1.12 Patch Level 1 with the default VBulletin template and it disables all Home Page links no matter what settings I choose.

Settings:

Enable Block Member Homepages: Yes
Minimum Post Count: 10
Don't Allow Member Homepages: Yes
Usergroup Override: Check two of private user groups
Delete Homepage on Ban: Yes

My goal is to only have Home Page links display for two usergroups only, which I checked in the Usergroup Override.

Do you have a manual template edit code to only display to usergroups 9 & 10?

Your help would be appreciated.
