Disable image/video embedding in signatures


NeedCoffee

Recommended Posts

Hi,

We've just migrated to IPB from vBulletin, so bear with our newb questions for the next few days 😊

We've noticed that some users have managed to embed YouTube clips in their forum signatures. I wonder if before this was just a YouTube link (in vBulletin) and has now been converted to the actual video? Either way, we don't want users to be able to put images or videos in their signatures, we literally just want text and links. We have set maximum number of images to '0' for the usergroup but it doesn't seem to impact on this?

Thanks!

In a topic today I wrote exactly about this. 

It looks like when a user has created a signature containing images and you disable images in signatures, the existing signatures will keep the images. Now you can delete all existing sigs by hand or disable signatures at all.

With nearly 200k users and 16 years of posts to go though, by hand is not going to be an option :biggrin:

Wonder if anyone else has got a solution? I think what has also happened is that people who previously had a YouTube link in their signature, now it's the actual video unit appearing in their signature, any way to turn this off?! Not sure it would be covered by the standard permissions you've mentioned?

No idea, I even didn't know it is possible to have embedded videos in the sig. There seems to be only a global setting to allow embedding videos in post, but that's not the solution you're looking after I guess.
