Stopping certain groups posting links?

Post by robbie787 »

Is there a way to allow only certain groups the permission to post url links. As I wish to prevent newly registered users from posting urls. I don't want to disable it fully but allow url links to be posted by the more veteran users that have been around a while as they are more trusted.

I can't seem to find anything in permissions to do this. Is there an extension anyone has or knows of?

You can disable [url] tags. Group forum permissions, Newly Registered users, whatever forums, Advanced permissions, Content tab, Can use BBCode, Never. Magic urls can only be disabled board-wide.
