    Official - Paid Stop Links in Posts

    Tired of spam bots or humans posting spammy links? Worry no more! This Stop Links in Posts mod validates links in posts by either preventing external links to be posted with an error message or automatically placing posts with external links under moderation.

    Features:
    1. Can easily enable or disable mod without entirely disabling or uninstalling the mod.
    2. Can validate users posting external links by usergroup(s) only, post count only, either or both. For example, you could easily target users if they belong to Registered Usergroup, or if post count is less than 6, either or both.
    3. Can either prevent saving of posts with external links and display validation error, or allow posts to be saved but automatically place it under moderation.
    4. Only external links are detected and internal links (must be same domain as forum) are allowed.
    5. Also checks Link and Video content types.
    6. Validation error messages uses Phrase Manager so it can be re-worded or translated to another languange.
    7. Uses PHP hooks. This means that link detection is done on the server-side which is good because even if user is using an automated tool (which spam bots usually use) to post spammy links, the server will still be able to catch the error and prevent the posting or moderate the post.
    8. Uses Product XML system and requires file upload of the mod package to the server.
    See screenshot of the AdminCP settings of the mod below:

    NOTE:
    • For vB 5.5.0 and older, an existing PHP file in the vB5 codebase needs to be edited to manually add the needed missing PHP hooks that will be added in vB 5.5.1. Once vB 5.5.1 (which is the upcoming version at the time of this writing) is released, editing is no longer needed. A step-by-step process to edit the file is included in the installation instructions included in the package.
    • Not compatible with vBCloud.
    Demo:
    This mod is installed on this site vbmods.rocks. Members of this site who have 5 posts or less will not be able to post external links. You can also watch the video screencast below to see the mod in action.

    This will be an upcoming purchase I feel, now that I am on 5.5.1, this should hopefully yield a super easy install which is a bonus.

      Glenn, does it work the same for embedded links?

        NumNum, by "embedded links", did you mean links posted via the chain icon at the upper left corner of the editor? If so, then yes.

          If in case the plugin couldn't do it, you could still use the Can Create Link permission to control the visibility of the Link icon.

          If the images are embedded using [img] bbcode and pointing to an external URL, then yes. If images are uploaded to your server, then no since they don't point to external URL.

              Can you post the source?

            Glenn, this is a little issue.
            Please see the example below.

            https://example.com

            If the link is inside BB-code (bold font), then the mod does not stop it., that's what i mean:

            HTML Code:
            [b]https://example.com[/b]

            Is there any way to solve this?

              That image was embedded using [img] bbcode and pointing to an external URL, so yes it will be blocked by the mod.

              Hi Glenn., please see the one more report.
              Links inside the URL BB-Code are also skips and not checked by mod.

              example:
              HTML Code:
              Test link in post [URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlDzYIIOYmM"]GoPro[/URL]

                  I am using vBulletin 5.5.4 and did not follow the readme 3.1 - 3.6 steps. Maybe this is the problem?
