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.

First- Turn the option to "Don't Allow Member Homepages" to No.

Then in the manual template edit instructions edit the line:


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

to


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

That will block it only for usergroups 9 and 10.

Then, if it works, please "Mark as Installed" in the top post.

I installed this... however I had to go the 'manual template edits' route to set the limit.

You however neglected to mention what manual template edits we need to make to disable homepages for people who have already put one in before the mod was installed. This isn't working by default so if you could share the manual template edit to accomplish that, that would be awesome!

Disabling homepages for people who have already entered it shouldn't need manual template edits. They are done by code that should work regardless of your style.

Installed, and working great!

But now I see a few spammers are dumping links into the biography and other profile fields. Is there a way to turn off the biography, location, interests, occupation, ICQ UIN, Yahoo ID, and other such fields for a particular user group? (I want the Registered users group in my forum to be extremely limited - once I know a user is not a spammer, I promote that user to an Approved user group that has normal forum privileges).

Alternatively, is there a way to prevent links or web addresses in those fields?

Those things are no doubt possible but not part of this mod, no easy way to adapt it to cover those fields either.

Can I get a link to your forum?

WHere are you seeing their homepage URLs? (the people with < 10?)

Do you have a custom style? If so can you see if the homepages are visible on the default style. it will let me know where the issue is.

Hmmm... Do you have a custom style? I haven't looked at this mod a year+, it's possible something changed.
