Signature / Profile options question

Post by Spherix »

Hello,

First of all, great job on phpbb3 RC5, as I'm currently using it on my board and I must say I love it. I have a question however regarding two things in the administrator control panel.

Users profile:
I know there is the option to add custom field to ones profile, but is there also an option to remove or disable a current field in the profile? Spambots that break the captcha usually put theire whole profile full of spam, mainly website links. I was looking for an option to disable the option of entering a website, but I could not find it. Is this something I'm missing, something that is in developed or just not developed?

(Note: I'm not directly requesting features, I'm wondering if I'm missing something here.)

Users signature:
I have gone trough the options of users signatures, and I must say I like it how many options can be set in this version of phpBB3. However I have trouble finding the following; I noticed administrators are able to limit the amount of URL's used in a signature, which is a usefull option, but I could not find the option to limit the amount of IMG tags in a signature, lots of users tend to put up multiple images in a signature, bypassing the set dymensions for signatures. same as above; Is this something I'm missing, something that is in developed or just not developed?

Thanks for your attention and I hope I'm just looking in the wrong area :)

Hi,
about your question #1, that's not implemented for backward compatibily towards phpBB2: the default fields are the same, they are not mandatory nor disactivable (without some kind of mod).
As for your question #2, that's not implemented either, although it might be added in some minor revision. It was discussed here and here.
