[ABD] Maximum Signature Lines

Extension Name: Maximum Signature Lines
Author: Wolfsblvt

Extension Description: Allows adminitrators to set a maximum line count for signatures, in addition to the existing character length, to prevent signatures with many lines.
Extension Version: 1.0.0

Requirements:
  • PHP: >= 5.4.0
Features:
Current Features
****************
  • ACP option to limit lines for signatures
Planned Features
****************
  • None
Screenshots:
Do you know that? Some annoying users like this?

Imagine there would be an option like this:

And those user would just get... this:

Wouldn't that be great?


Extension Download: wolfsblvt.maximumsignaturelines.zip

GitHub Repository: http://github.com/Wolfsblvt/maximumsignaturelines/
(Just for viewing purposes, do not install this extension from GitHub!)

More Information:
I've done this, cause some of my user are dumb. They don't read forum rules, and end up with signatures containing a dozens of lines. Most of my users don't like that. Signatures are distracting, so this should be limited to a small amount.

This extension just adds an ACP option to your Signature settings to specify a line limit. User's can't create signatures with more lines.
Not that signatures already set up will not be reduced.

Bug reports for this extension in this thread please, or on GitHub.

I guess that is a copy & paste error!

I like the look of this, nice work :)

Can I request some add ons/possible additions?
ACP control of amount of images.
ACP control for amount of links.

If those would also be possible, this would be very useful Extension! Not that it isn't anyway! but you know what I mean. :)

Isn't this built-in by phpBB? :D
You can see the first one of it on one of the screenshots.
You can limit characters, links, images. But not lines, that was the one missing for me, so I implemented it myself.

And thank you (:

Thanks :D
See... I really want to switch my forum to phpBB 3.1, but I need LOT of extensions. So I can just sit and wait for others to complete what I want, or I can do most of it myself.
I've learned a lot in the last two years of my phpBB development. I couldn't share it until today, cause the system of making mods was.. quite complicated. Extensions eases a lot, so maybe some other users will find my extensions helpful (:

Keep an eye open, there will be LOTS of more extensions by me :P
Next one will be cool.

Nice job. :)

Suggestion

Add signature size for groups?
Different numbers of characters, images or links for certain groups.

Best regards.
All unsolicited PMs will be ignored.

I don't think that the effort will be worth the value.

Thanks for the reply Clemens, but I still don't see maximum amount of signature images anywhere in the core or this extension? Maybe I'm being thick here! :oops: I see maximum URL's/Links but...

Ah right, you can just forbid images, that's true, not limit them to a specific count.
But dunno if I'll include here. I think this is a rare use case, most forums I know forbid using of images in signatures.

A size different size signature, etc. for the team and another size to other groups.

The problem is, all the other signature limiting options are globally too. So do you want to have all per group based?
