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.

The bots sign up and get stuck because they cannot fill in this information I love it.

What we did was disabled signatures for new registered users, created another group for anyone that has been a member over 30 days and has 30 posts. Once you reach this limit the forums will move you into this group. Now you can use Signatures and Home Link.

The word is already out and the SPAM is gone.

Thank you once again I wish this was a default option of vBulletin.

If this is the only reason why you may you use this mod, there's a much better solution out there, called GlowHost. In four months I had just one (!) registration of a silly bot.

But anyway, I installed this mod here for some other "friendly" guys, working great. Thanks a lot.

Best regards

L.R.

Installed it, but I still see the Homepage link on profiles that shouldn't have it. Does this only affect new users?

No it should work on all... If you have a heavily customized style it may not work, I can give you manual template edits in that case.

Curious - can I get a link to the site?

The manual template edits for those interested is...

Open modifyprofile template... search for "homepage"

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.

It seems to be working fine from what iIcan see... Did you have your "test" user in the "immune" usergroup maybe?

Ah I see now.

It is working. I thought it would also remove the Homepage link from current members.
