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.

Unfortunately getting it here doesn't mean anything in terms of quality or coding standards.

The way this mod removes the links for existing URLs is to look through the template code for specific values and just removes or replaces it with its own code.

Basically if the code it looks for is different than it expects it never finds it and the code can't be removed.

Usually even in custom mods the default code tends to be left alone with most changes done by CSS, so the mod works- but not always.

The way to debug if this is due to a custom style is to try against the real default style and see if the problem exists there. If it does then it a problem with the mod itself. If it does work on the default style the issue is with the custom template- the mod or the template can likely still be made to work, just means I need to change different code and not the core logic.

Do you have a quick query I can run to remove the home page links from those who have posted them prior to this plugin being installed?

I don't believe this plugin purges any current links prior to it being installed?

No it does not purge old links but it should block them from being accessible.


ALWAYS HAVE A DATABASE BACKUP BEFORE RUNNING A MANUAL QUERY- This is untested, use at your own risk.

I would try-


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

That should update the user table, it will set the homepage field to blank for any user where it isn't already blank who has less than 10 posts.

If you really want to wipe it out for everyone completely, including admins/mods then the query is just-


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


Note in all cases those are two single quotes next to each other '' not a single double-quote character.

Does this still work under PHP 5.5? I moved servers recently and I see new members with homepages.
