Here is a quick and easy method to stop those spam bots leaving links in their profile.

Go to profile_add_body.tpl

Look for


Quote:

<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_ICQ_NUMBER}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" name="icq" class="post" style="width: 100px" size="10" maxlength="15" value="{ICQ}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_AIM}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 150px" name="aim" size="20" maxlength="255" value="{AIM}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_MESSENGER}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 150px" name="msn" size="20" maxlength="255" value="{MSN}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_YAHOO}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 150px" name="yim" size="20" maxlength="255" value="{YIM}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_WEBSITE}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 200px" name="website" size="25" maxlength="255" value="{WEBSITE}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_LOCATION}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 200px" name="location" size="25" maxlength="100" value="{LOCATION}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_OCCUPATION}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 200px" name="occupation" size="25" maxlength="100" value="{OCCUPATION}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_INTERESTS}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 200px" name="interests" size="35" maxlength="150" value="{INTERESTS}" />
</td>
</tr>


In front put

<!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_in -->

And at the end put

<!-- END switch_user_logged_in -->

So it looks like this


Quote:
<!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_in -->
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_ICQ_NUMBER}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" name="icq" class="post" style="width: 100px" size="10" maxlength="15" value="{ICQ}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_AIM}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 150px" name="aim" size="20" maxlength="255" value="{AIM}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_MESSENGER}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 150px" name="msn" size="20" maxlength="255" value="{MSN}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_YAHOO}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 150px" name="yim" size="20" maxlength="255" value="{YIM}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_WEBSITE}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 200px" name="website" size="25" maxlength="255" value="{WEBSITE}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_LOCATION}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 200px" name="location" size="25" maxlength="100" value="{LOCATION}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_OCCUPATION}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 200px" name="occupation" size="25" maxlength="100" value="{OCCUPATION}" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_INTERESTS}:</span></td>
<td class="row2">
<input type="text" class="post" style="width: 200px" name="interests" size="35" maxlength="150" value="{INTERESTS}" />
</td>
</tr>
<!-- END switch_user_logged_in -->


This means they have to log in before they can add anything in their profile, if you have visual confirmation and activate by admin this should be a deterrent for any spam bot or sad sack that try s to make a few pennies by doing this.
