Not Supported Uses Plugins  

Since VB4 has some build in spam guards for specific sites/users who are widely known for spamming, I felt that it didn't help stop any of the small time and newbie spammers and so I decided to make this mod.

This mod doesn't allow users to post any form of a link without achieving so many posts first. So if they want to posts tons of videos, ftp, images, websites, game servers ... etc this will stop most of them, possibly all. So wether is a whole new thread or a reply in another thread it will stop them. This also work on quicc reply aswell.

I don't have many games installed so the only game with a server I ws able to test was those of the Unreal Tournament series. If you find other kind of links that need to be stopped please let me know.

Z - X Posts Before Links:
  • all options are in your Admin CP
  • no template editing needed

Installation:
  1. Import product-z_xpbl.xml
  2. Goto --> Admin CP --> Settings --> Options --> Z - X Posts Before Links and make your settings.

Remember to clicc install.

1.3 Multiple Usergroup Filtering (added to 1.1)
1.2 A Bunch of New Features (New Product -> Z - Total Link Control)

No it doesn't work with signatures. I thought there was already one that had that feature so didn't think aout including it.

Its a Vb built-in feature. ( In Group-permissions )

Great idea for this Mod.

Fixing to install now. Just hope it doesn't interfere with the permissions from my LDM Mod, but shouldn't sense I have it inheriting the forum permissions.

Thanks for another Great Mod.

Thanks,

Hey Zaiaku,

Great, Installed, but would it be to much trouble to add a "usergroup" option to the Mod?
With that feature this will be one of "The All Time" greats.

Thanks,

I was going to add uergroups on this but didn't see it as much of a point to it.

by default guest and spiders can't post so isn't needed for that.
Admins, SuperAdmins and Moderators are normal on the board for a while.
New Members usually are the only ones effected by this.

What's your ideas with using this on usergroups?

Just shows a small error telling them they aren't allowed to post any kinds of links yet.

Well, lets say I have a new site ( I do ) and want to add some of my webmaster friends etc.. and then they'll have to make x amount of post before they could add a links etc...

Plus I have my site setup with "New Users", then after certain amount of post they move up to "Registered Users", and so on...

Thanks,
