Forum Error Message: Not Allowed to Post Links
« on: May 23, 2011, 08:06:00 PM »
I wasn't exactly sure in which board this thread belongs, but it fits best here.

For some reason I get the same error message over and over again when I try to post a new update in my Dynasty thread.

It says: "You are not allowed to post links".

However, there are no links in my post, just images. I tried restarting my PC, logging out and in, nothing seems to work. Others don't appear to have this problem though - any idea what this could be?

I'll bring this to Carl's attention.

Thanks Metro.

It's getting late (no, it is late) where I live, so I'll check back tomorrow, see if the problem's still there.

You're not the only one. I have the same error. I was wondering if I did something wrong!

Same with me. At first I just thought that they banned links completely but that couldn't be.

Sorry for any inconvenience. I was trying to install a mod that would allow us to limit link posting to legit members to curb spam. The intention was to make it so that members under 5 posts wouldn't be able to post a link, but the mod wasn't built the way I needed it. I've uninstalled it so everything should be working fine.

I'm getting it too. Let me check and see if it's fixed.

EDIT: It's fixed! Thanks Carl!

Thanks Carl!

Don't worry about the inconvenience though. It'd have been a great way to reduce spam, shame it didn't work.
