Modification Download: Signature Restrictions 0.0.1
Requirements: phpBB 3.0.4
Modification Description: Adds additional settings for restricting the content of signatures.
Some forum administrators like to have very clear, precise limits on user signatures. These can involve restrictions on length and content that go beyond the limits of phpBB's default signature settings. For such forums, dealing with signatures that break the forum's rules can eat up a good bit of time for both forum staff, who have to handle these violations, and the users, who often have to guess if a signature is acceptable.
Signature Restrictions adds new settings to phpBB 3 forums, allowing administrators to set additional rules for signatures. These include the number of images, number of text lines, and number of characters per line. The width and height of images, in relation to the line restrictions, are also considered. With these more precise controls on signature length and layout, the hassle of maintaining signatures is reduced for users and staff.
- Control the maximum number of images in a signature.
- Limit the total height of a signature, in number of lines.
- Limit the length of each line of a signature.
- Image widths and heights can be included in the check to see if a signature is too wide or too long.
This is the first release, so I'm going with a low version number, but I believe this version is stable enough to use. It is based on a mod I made and was using on phpBB 2 (but never released), so the bulk of the code has been tested pretty well. Feedback welcome.
