Is this Mod still being supported by anyone because, if so, I have a question.

Settings ...
Post count under which members cannot post external links - 5
Post count under which members external links are shown [nonactive] and without http:// - 5
Post count under which members external links are set [nofollow] - 5
Guests... Can not post links

The Mod seems to be working fine.  However, when a new member with no posts tries to make a post using the bbc code tags, like this ...

Code tags here, maybe something like this (just an example)...
// Configuration

// Set the number of posts to show..
$num_recent = 25;

// Alternatively set here a range of days passed.
// eg , 7 will get all the topics in the past 7 days.
// This will over-ride $num_recent above.  Set to 0 to disable.
$num_days = 0;


... They get the message "Sorry, you are not allowed to post external links." despite the fact that there are no links inside the code tags.

Any help here?

Thanks for the mod.

I works fine with my updated SMF 2.0 except one problem: my user (admin) with about 1200 posts is treated as newbie. hxxp:meeresbrise.de/forum/smf/index.php/topic,348.msg2097.html [nonactive] Any idea to solve this problem?

Attached you'll find my german translation of the language file.

helG,
Unfortunately, I don't think anyone is supporting this Mod anymore, as evidenced by the fact that nobody has responded to my question above yours posted a week ago.

Great Mod, so far seems to work great except for one minor oversight... I've got mine set so that newbies cannot post links until they have successfully posted 10 messages without links, HOWEVER, the mod doesn't cover profile signatures. Please correct this in the next release when there's time, should be easy enough and the effort would be worth the time spent as I'd actually pay for this one man, it's kinda comical to watch (via "Who's Online"), the spammers struggle to do their thing unsuccessfully. This mod reduces vastly the amount of time spent banishing users.
Best Regards,
Bob Perry

how to allow admin to post links
pls help me

IchBin™

I don't think admins have restrictions place on them from what I remember. Assuming admin is primary member group and not secondary.

No Admin also getting the error message

in my forum it's showing that

IchBin™

I don't think there is a setting, so you'll have to change your admin to have enough posts to have the mod not affect them then.

This is Exactly what we all are looking for.

This is such a wonderful Mod, why the developer has abandoned it.

Can any other developer please work on this Baby and let it grow? Please?

This is a great mod, but it doesn't nofollow the links in the member's profile. The website URL in the profile stays dofollow.

Thanks for the suggestions, we'll put it on the todo list for this mod and see if we can't get an update out for profile signature links.

You can click parse for all the mods on the mod site to see what edits need to be done to the files.

i know that, but this parse does not have any entry related to themes! All entries are for sources, and languages. Thats why i am asking.

Well if you looked at the parse instructions and it doesn't have any theme edits, then there is no need to edit any themes.

A new forum member contacted me to say that his legitimate post (his first) was rejected due to "Sorry, you are not allowed to post external links" yet it actually had no links.

Is there a way to mark a user as trusted so he can avoid the "new user" spam checks?

IchBin™

No way to do that I'm afraid, unless you just bump his count up to bypass your limit set.

I kept getting the following error messages when I install this mod with RC5. Guests are not allowed to make posts and I have disable mod for guest.

Line: 2490

Just in case anyone else experiences this problem, it's because this mod doesn't seem to have a default value for modSettings['anti_spam_links_guests'] and this causes it to generate an error if one isn't explicitly set.

To fix, go to the mod's setting page in Admin, change the value in the 'Guests...' pulldown and click Save.  Then change it back to whatever setting you want and click Save again.

Everything should work fine and you should stop receiving the error.

IchBin™

That should be fixed in the code for sure.
