Turn off the ability to add a website in profile

Post by Flagger »

This may be an easy mod, but I wonder how I can turn off the ability to put a URL/website in the profile. I am trying to curtail spammers and until I can update my mods this is what i thought of.

Is it in the TPL that I could just remove the table or would that mess everything up?

Please help.

Spambots will still join. You need to read the anti spam thread and my anti spam mod linked in my sig to stop them joining

I have several anti-SPAM MODs that seem to work well, as well as a new "Approve posts MOD" (major apin tho')

I would like to have the ability to only allow WebSites in profiles ONLY after x number of posts, but I can't find it. Still searching.

If you find the "Instantban" mod in the db then that has that as part of the mod. For anyone trying to enter a url at registration (no field there to complete until x posts) it will instant ban them.
It has banned over 1000 on my site.

This will work fine and well, but what about after they have registered & been approved?---is there a MOD out there that will prevent a person from adding a website to profile depending on number of posts and or days active?
