Limiting signature links / posted links in vBulletin

    Hi all, can anyone tell me how do I stop people from posting links or having links in their forum signature until they reach a certain post count? Do I need to install a mod for that? Thanks.

    Personally I think it's good to allow signature links on forums. It helps both parties. I wouldn't limit the amount of links a user can have, but maybe the amount of characters or images.

    it doesn't help the forum owner in the least ;)
    in fact, it hurts them because they have more external links per page.

    It will probably be best to open a new thread and ask ;)
