I have modded this module and released a package at [www.celerity.co.uk] (the zip contains everything in the package)

OVERVIEW
This is a mod to Maurice's Signature Restrictions module, released in the hope that:
a) it will help the Phorum community
and b) that Maurice will incorporate it into his official module

PURPOSE OF MOD:
One of my forums has lots of spammers who register an account, add 2-3 spam links in their sig and manually post inane replies to existing threads, just so their sigs are seen.
The solution to this, as requested by my forum community, is to restrict markup in sigs to new users, which will hopefully discourage spammers.
This module therefore allows markup in sigs to only be used for users who have been registered more than x number of days (admin configurable).
If a spammer did have the patience to register, wait X days and post, they will have to do it all again once their account is deleted.

NOTE TO MAURICE:
I have altered :
- all lang files, added markup_user_registered_days and date_format
- settings.php (one line, commented as /\dam)
- signature_restrictions.php (one single block of code, commented as /\dam)

I have tested the module by manually changing the timestamp of my Phorum user and then outputting debug messages accordingly. I've tested it mainly with values of 1-30 days.

Hope this proves helpful to people,

/\dam

I Phorum-ized the patches and included them in the main distro. Check out version 1.0.2 for the updates.

as far as I understand your message: just check the settings of the bbcode module for a solution.

Hi Maurice,

I published a new version of my German Language Files Package which includes also translations for you module in two character sets iso-8859-1 and utf-8.

Please add the attached language files to the next release of your module and remove maybe existing old style files like german.php oder german-sie.php. Thanks!

Regards
Oliver

I added the new language files in module package 1.0.2.

Note that the language files weren't complete. I added a German translation for the 1.0.2 language string "markup_user_registered_days" to the main UTF-8 and ISO-8859-1 files. I'm not sure if my translation is correct. Also, you probably want to add it to the other varieties of the German language files too.
