Avoiding the insertions of urls in posts/topics
Hi, rather I explain my question with a practical example 🙂
Some1 just introduce himself on my forum putting a link to their website which also containts a forum... I think you can already see where I come from and where I want to arrive...
While on this case, it's not really harming me, or so I think. For obvious reasons neither helps, that's for sure...
As the person has introduced himself correctly, with nice manners etc, I just don't want to simply edit his posts and delete his website link...
Is there a way I could prevent this from happening in the future other than the posts having to receive moderation from me before showing up?
This way nobody could complain I took their website off, it will not be able to be added so end of the argument before it start, full stop 🙂
*Of course, even if there is a solution it will always be a drawback which is that will prevent other 100% genuine, useful links to be added to the forum but I suppose will have to be one way or the other, correct? I add this last paragraph just in case, you, being very experienced with forums have even a "much better perfect solution" that not allowing links at all
Thanks in advance 🙂
I'm trying to understand you. Are you looking for a feature that will filter and remove users links from the post content automatically?
Basically yes Robert 🙂
What do you personally think about it as an user point of view?
Im not really 100% sure I want to do this but I think YES, otherwise its quite easy for people to "take advantage of you" in a way if you know what I mean, correct?
Thanks Robert, but for that I have to yes or yes first turn on the option that posts must be manually moderated, correct?
