    XF 2.1 Prevent URL in Title

    I see that I don't have www, just the below plus some inappropriate words: /^https:\/\/[a-z0-9\S\n]+/si /^http:\/\/[a-z0-9\S\n]+/si /^https?:\/\/\S+\n/si [url* http* https* So I can just add www as one line and that would solve that?

    Finding Advertisers

    Any downsides? Ex. Low quality ads, user experience, do follow link requirements

    Finding Advertisers

    Honestly, I am not strongly motivated to work hard to find advertisers. My forums turn a profit, though not huge. I have other ways I make money. That being said I do like money. :) I have my own ad system where people can buy ads 125x125 on the side, or a header image on the top (same method...

    Locating Low Quality Links

    Yes, everything is good. I'm not really worried about spam in the last year. I'm trying to find stuff that's really old and low-quality from years ago. I hope you're doing fine too.

    Locating Low Quality Links

    Really surprised I missed it, but I have a user on my Salsa Forums back in 2008 who posted 128 times, and at the bottom of every post is link to a site about drugs, sex, etc... real low quality stuff. Now I am deleting 1 by 1. :( How might I find more like this. I think mostly I'm clean, but...

    Time before can post a link

    So right now we basically have Registered Users. I see the section you are talking about, but I don't grasp how to connect this together such that new low post users can't post links, but after criteria is met, they can.

    Time before can post a link

    So I already had a limit of 20 posts before a link can be posted, so of course someone last night posted 27 times and then added links to their pharmacy site. I upped the limit to 60. Would be nice if I could also limit new users like this: 1. 50 posts minimum AND 2. Member for 6 months Any ideas?

    My Xenforo / Forum Success Story

    The thread where you were announcing that you were selling the Forum was quite recent, correct? based on what we know, it would be only natural to have some suspicions here. That doesn't mean our suspicions are correct. And of course you should persevere and do your best to do something that is...

    My Xenforo / Forum Success Story

    Yep, and it looks like the YouTube channel was recently banned which I assume put damper on the forum, but of course I don't know enough about what they do to give an expert opinion. I've had my forums since 2002, and they aren't going anywhere. We have active members that started in 2002.

    I didn't see that. Maybe I missed it. Looked twice and I didn't see that.

    My Xenforo / Forum Success Story

    Thanks for sharing. I believe that websites are coming back, and apps are losing some market share. This is a good time to prepare for a new wave of technology. Surely, we will be using voice, video, notifications, and virtually everything else apps do in the browser in the years ahead. There...

    how do people get away with nulled script

    Well, I used to sell a lot of licenses for a script called phpld. The best month that we ever had in the history of the company is when we created a policy to find and dmca as many offenders as possible. I worked with our programmers to develop a CMS to: Automatically populate a list of sites...
