    I installed this using [url=* with the bracket. Someone joined, and posted a link right off.

    You've not done it right. I've done exactly the same and here are 3 examples of blocked content,

    I did exactly what it said here.

    Did you remove the bracket?

    I've also added "*@*" to stop spammers trying to bypass url checking and just put/use their email address.

    I haven't tested, but I've not seen a single spam status update. Ever.

    This is a good idea as they seem to try to use URL's on their profile even with spaces to prevent it being caught.

    The trigger should be [URL since we can have:

    Code:
     [url=http:// and [url]http://
    Great suggestion, Thanks!
