Profiles with links
« on: August 07, 2019, 11:11:10 pm »
Hello.

We have a lot of people with profile info and links that are porn sites and other illegal activities.

How do you handle that sort of problem ?

Thanks

I'm using it for ages. It was installed by our previous webmaster.

Doesn't have anything to do with profiles filtering.

I have thought about that a lot. Since profiles and profiles edits can't be moderated, an other way must be found.

After some brainstorming here, i think the best and easiest way is to have some filters/words that if IN the profile, then an email should be send to the admin for check. Same if a profile is edited. If some filter is triggered, an email should ne send to the admin.

Now, this can't be done in the core apparently right now.

So the best way is to MAKE somehow the Spamprotection plugin to also check the profiles and send an email. But who is gonna make that modification ? Not even sure if this can be done.

Still a lot of problems with all that: What will happen with the OLD profiles ? I have 9.000+ users registered. How do we find profiles with spam ?

Any more ideas on all that ?????

What if the user description would be removed? Is there a real need for it?

I mean only the description. It can be used for vavourites ads and displayed only to the user in its dashboard. The url field can be changed in a simillar way if that is also the isue.
