disable URL in the signature

Post by docco »

I have a problem with new users spam the forum with add spam link in the signature.
Can anyone help me how to disable the link in the signature, so if they type a link in the signature, they can not finish.
I already searched but can not find the resolution

Run this SQL (Executing SQL Queries in phpMyAdmin KB):

Code: Select all

UPDATE phpbb_users SET user_sig = '' WHERE user_type <> 2;

Thanks stevemaury,
Can you help me more about the link in the post to prevent spam.
1. Only users in the group can post link in the post.
2. Otherwise, the post with link should be checked by Admin before dispalyed.
Thanks

1. You would need a MOD for that, there is no separate permission for links in posts.

2. Requiring post approval is the default setting for the Newly registered users group. You set the number of posts that require approval, the default is 3, and after that they move out of the Newly registered group and will no longer require approval.
ACP > General tab > User registration settings > New member post limit

Note: The number set is not retroactive. The limit is whatever applied at the time the member joined. So, dor example, if it is currently 3 and you change it to 10, that will not apply to members who have already joined only to those that join after the change is made.

Thanks you!
One more question is that how can I set the forum to delete automatically members who do not access the forum for a period.
Any tool to list these users?
