Disable entering URLs in user names


(Anton) #1

Is there a way to disable users entering any domain names / urls in their “name” profile field?

Someone just tricked the system by entering their website into the “name” field next to their real name, and then posting here and there some nonsense, which lead to their website ads in many topics.

Right now you can only blacklist literal names. What if we could use regex? Then you could disallow parts in the username like .com.

what kind of URL? With the leading http:// or not? Either way it would not be an actual clickable link.

Without http:// prefix.
It is not clickable, but it makes an ads of a someone’s website in their every simgle message (we display names next to nicknames).
