Hi, mwaterous. That is FANTASTIC. Thank you!
I have to run some more tests but I think you nailed it. I tested:
http://www.test.com (simply written www, no html)
http://test.com (http: but no html)
<a/ a tag)
Except for the 1st one, all were converted into a link and ALL carried the nofollow tag. This is for posting messages by members on regular threads.
I placed that last line anywhere inside /bb-includes/functions.bb-formatting.php, as I didn’t have any of the other files you mentioned. In case others need this, is it possible to stick this one up? When I researched this subject here I found a few topics with at least 7 or 8 members looking for an answer to this problem. But the only answer was provided by you today.
Still ONE MORE spammer alert: if a member places HTML in its signature (using the <a tag) this will escape your filter and the signature will go “follow”
On another subject, if I may…
1. Signatures: do they only appear in the first post made by the member? I believe so.
2. I messed up the .css and can’t refix it. The size of the font for the “textarea” where messages are entered is close to nothing and I have to glue my eyes to screen to read what I am writing. This is the only field where the font-size was nuked. Where and in which .css should I fix this?
