I am looking for a way to restrict the spam on my forum. Is there a way to do this?
I don't understand question, can you be more specific and answer the following questions?
what existing plugins written for spam prevention, have you tried so far?
and what do you mean by "changing avis" ?
when you search for spam on this forum, do you see any plugins recommended and which have you tried?
essentially do you want to "prevent web links" for certain roles, or do you want to prevent image and avi attachments?
try entering "spam" in search box on this forum or "spam"
or "links" in the search box in the addons section.
you can also add here:http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/26703/plugins-themes-that-work-and-dont-work-in-vanilla-2-1/p1

if you are referring to posts on activity wall you can disable view on activity.
I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
By changing avis, I mean changing the avatars. I want to restrict image attachments for new users.
image attachments would be via removing fileupload permissions in the role.
editing or changing avatars ( user photos ) would be prevented by removing profile edit privs from the role via dashboard, which would remove other privs.
last time I checked....
You can disable changing of profile photos by adding to config.php NON- role based and affects other profile editing as well possibly.
$Configuration['Garden']['Profile']['EditPhotos'] = FALSE;
report back what worked.
I thought you meant avi extension files.
but the above should answer your questions based on what you asked.
Good clear explanation of issues or desires is always good as well as screenshots of what you want to achieve on which screens.
I'll post these in case it will help you or other people in the future.
