disable the ability to post images?

Postby Baha'i Warrior » Mon Nov 20, 2006 12:58 am

I've been deleting some spam recently that contain explicit pictures (it has the image in the actual message). Since we have a mixed audience here, I might suggest that perhaps we disable the ability to post images? Just an idea.

Thanks, BW

Unfortunately it's not so easy to just ban images. I tried a module last year that would disallow HTML for anyone not registered, but it didn't work and permanently messed up the HTML for some users (even after restoring the original files). I could turn off HTML entirely, but I use it for a lot of things and many legit images are embedded in previous posts. So I think the only solution is wait for phpBB3 to come out, should be around the end of the year.

Thank you for deleting them! -Jonah
