I am sure this must be possible, but I can't find any info on this - have read the manual and tried searching the help forums.

When a new user registers and posts their first message I want to bad any hyperlinks - this to stop manual spammers.
(We are using pre-moderation for new users)

I'm happy for hyperlinks to be used by regsitered users.

miniBB's manual has this;

$allowHyperlinks=10; mandatory option; if greater than zero, it means hyperlinks will be allowed for members only who made not less than $allowHyperlinks postings. If set to zero, hyperlinks will be automated also for guests. By hyperlinks, we mean highlighted URLs in postings: when you post anything beginning from http:// , or www. or enclosed in [url][/url] BB codes, it is converted to a clickable hyperlink.
