You would think that even the most basic forum software would be capable of preventing a new user posting links in titles or in posts. But so far this function is not available in xF. Hopefully it will make version 2

If you want to just outright block links, at least from untrusted users, this is possible via the spam phrases system. Easiest option would be to put this in it:
Code:
/https?:|www\./i
This will apply to other places too -- signatures, profile posts, conversations, etc.

The spam phrases system only checks people for their first few messages, though you can adjust that. You can also explicitly exempt certain groups from the checks.
