Waindigo submitted a new resource:

BB Code Permissions by Waindigo (version 1.0.0) - Use permissions to stop URLs being posted by certain users and user groups, or in certain forums.

Description:

This add-on adds a new permission to allow use of the BB code tag to only be used by certain users and user groups, or in certain forums.

The permission is applied when a user views a post, meaning that BB code tags are (un)hidden retrospectively based on the currently set permission.

Installation:
  • Upload contents of upload folder to root directory, overwriting any existing files.
  • Install...

but theres a bug or im not sure if its a bug...

if a user with BBtag perm set as NOT SET will type
http://www.domain.com
it will show ****************

BUT if a user with BBtag perm set as NOT SET will type
www.domain.com
it will show the url with clickable link.

I think this might partly be a bug with XenForo as it is due to some quite weird behaviour when you type a link fo the for www.domain.com, but I will fix for it anyway.

I have fixed the above bugs and will release shortly.

Perhaps you would be willing to make a contribution to have the above feature added, as this is not a bug?

Hey,

I noticed that the following method still gets through:

Code:
[URL='http://www.Viagra.com']Viagra[/URL]
Could that be something fixed as well? Thanks!

i just realized that having all the links changed to **** will have impact on SEO.

example:
guest (including googlebots) can see no links (no outbound links, nono for seo)

the best thing to do i guess if possible:

guest users can only see viewable clickable links if posted by certain usergroup like VERIFIED MEMBERS
if the user is not a member of VERIFiED MEMBERS then the links in his post will be ***** by the guest/visitors

in that way, google can still see valid outbound links by valid members.

This is exactly how this add-on works already (as far as I understand from what you are saying).

what i meant is

settings:
GoogleCrawler is guest/Not Registered/unconfirmed user group
BBcode = Not Set


CURRENT VERSION:
JohnPremiumMemberBBcodeAllow = will post, best search engine is http://www.google.com
GoogleCrawler will see = best search engine is *************

PeterRegisteredMemberBBcodeNotSet = will post, best search engine is http://www.google.com
GoogleCrawler will see = best search engine is *************



SUGGESTED VERSION (SEO friendly):
JohnPremiumMemberBBcodeAllow = will post, best search engine is http://www.google.com
GoogleCrawler will see = best search engine is http://www.google.com (clickable link)

PeterRegisteredMemberBBcodeNotSet = will post, best search engine is http://www.google.com
GoogleCrawler will see = best search engine is *************


Why?:
Human spammers can earn by a "verified" working clickable links.
so if they post a spam with non clickable link, then they will not go back
again to your site due to its waste of time and effort for human spammer
