Disable Member Homepage Profile Option based on Post Count or Usergroup

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (6 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 61
Released: 24 Dec 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 231
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations  

This mod will remove the option to allow members to post a "Homepage" URL in their profile based on post count and/or usergroup id. In addition you can disable it for everyone if you want.

This is often requested because some admins feel some members join their forum only to place links to their own pages and never contribute to the forum. This will require users attain a minimum post count before posting- or stop them from using a homepage altogether.

You may override these settings by specifying immune usergroups- usually admins and maybe mods.

This has been tested on 3.8.6 and will work across all 3.8 versions. It should work on earlier versions too but not tested. It will not work on vBulletin 4.0 and above.
4.x version is here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=256383

If you have a heavily customized style then it is possible this mod will not work at all- it works based on automatic template edits and if the right default code isn't there nothing will happen. This is not a "bug." If you have a customized style try it first, if it doesn't work I can help you with some manual template edits to achieve the same effects as using this mod.

Install as normal, full instructions included in text file inside zip.

Contains: No files to upload, 1 plugin, 2 phrases, some new options.

You can change the default messages by editing the two phrases.

See screenshots for details.

Live Demo: www.juot.net/forums/ (but you will need to register to see it in action.)

Awesome!!

After reading http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=255798 I knew you would make it.

I too get hit with the spammers joining just to add a home page link, a sig with links & thier ICQ Number.
Installed, tested & working on 3.8.4

You can easily hide a signature via a quick template edit-

Edit your postbit or postbit_legacy template

Find the code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace it with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That won't show signatures of anyone with 10 or fewer posts...

But now I suspect you mean to disable them from even making a signature... I'll play around with this and see if I can add it to a future version of this mod or a separate release... will post here either way.

If members have already posted a URL in their homepage profile, then this add-on is installed, and then the member doesn't meet the criteria, will the URL be removed?

No it won't remove it until/unless they update their profile. If they update their profile it will get removed.

I have this installed. Somehow....a member is still able to add his home page without making any posts.

The hack appears to work correctly when I try it.

Is it possible they put it in before you installed the mod? It won't delete ones already there unless they update their profile.

This has been happening since I installed the modification.....but its only one person. It happened again today. This person is a spammer, who uses multiple email address and ip's that have been showing up on stopforumspam.com.

I just checked a username I registered a month ago to test this with, and your hack is working properly. Some how, and I am not sure how.....but they are doing it. Something I have noticed.....They register, leave, and come back about an hour or so later, and I believe this is when they make the change.

I am beginning to think they are doing it another way. I am running vb3.8.2, because I did not want to do the upgrade. Some of the hacks I am using will not work the newest version of vb3.8.7. I may break down and do the upgrade anyways. Unfortunately, this time of year is when my website is the busiest.

Thanks again!

I suppose they could be using some type of hacking tool to edit the code being submitted via the form element and bypassing the mod. Unfortunately I can't think of much of a way to prevent that at the moment.
