MWSP - Member's Website & Signature Permission

Last Update: Dec 20, 2014

This addon is 100% hooks based requiring no source edits to install.

Works with ElkArte: 1.0.2


Using this addon adds a new permission such that forum admins / owners can decide which groups are allowed to have have their own signatures and websites (links and names).

  1. Please do your own backup though every installation is backed up automatically.
  2. By default, forum members are usually allowed to have their own signatures and websites (links and names).
  3. All these are shown at display (post), personal message, profile summary, message list etc (are there any more?).
  4. Some of these are annoying and forum admins or owners dislike this, (or they want to charge some payment for them :P).
  5. Using this mod added permission, forum admins / owners can decide which groups are allowed to have these option available.
  6. This mod should automatically stop displaying all members’ signatures and websites until permission is assigned.
  7. Admin groups shall always have the privilege to have both options and can see previously set members’ signatures and websites.
  8. You can test it in all lower ElkArte 1.0.x version too as IMO it should work just fine. ;)
  9. Special thanks to emanuele in making this a fully hook version.
