Those gits that register just for free google link hits

Post by Jizumonkey »

Is there any way to stop them?!?!

I want to stop web links be used in members profiles and to add a message on the registration screen to say that web links are not active so if you're one of these people, don't even bother!!!

Can someone tell me if you can disable web link please and what file the text for the registration info is in...thanks.

PS would've used the search function but i just got a blank screen, using Firefox so maybe that's why.

Thanks for the link CTC I did it and it works great, no user can enter a web link in their profile or sig until they've hit 10 posts....that should stop the buggers.
