I'm looking for a volunteer to modify the phpBB code in order to block users with less than X posts from posting any sort of link. This includes links in posts and profiles. The user should simply see an error message stating something along the lines of "Sorry, to prevent spam new users are not allowed to post links. Please remove the link to continue.". Note that there are two types of links, bb code and standard URLs.

To do this you can simply download phpBB and install it on your development machine. All you'll need to provide is the code you have added and where it needs to go.

Just saw this post now. Does this mod not do what you want? I tested it quickly on a clean install and it seemed to work quite nicely.

I'm not sure, this was ages ago. It could work though.

Keep me posted. If it works, great. If not, I'll see what I can put together.
