Stop anonymous from posting links?

Post by thalador » Fri Feb 03, 2006 1:05 pm

How do I set it so that a user needs to be logged in to submit a new web link? We have been getting spammed by some hotel price company submitting 10 links a day and there is no trace of them.

I am at my wits end, please help!

Weblinks? Do you mean normal posts? In this case simply go into the admin panel -> forum admin -> permissions form, select a forum, switch to simply mode and then set the permissions to "Registered". Now do this for every forum you want to prevent guests from posting :)
