Disable images

I've been searching around the web and the forums for a fix to disable images in miniBB. Recently one of my forums has been hit by porn spammers despite having the CAPTCHA plugin installed, so I'd like to disable the option for images completely. Can anyone help?

From bb_codes.php file you could remove the [IMGS] and [IMG] tag codes in both encode and decode functions.

Additionally, don't forget to remove the IMG code button from templates/main_post_form.html.

You can edit everything you need with no limitations under GPL license terms, if you mean that.

You can't disable images and use smileys add-on at once, because Smileys add-on uses [img] tags and smileys are actually references to images. For making that happen, it's probably needed to rewrite Smileys script in general, letting is use not [img] code, but straightly converting smileys code to HTML.

Addition: I have had an idea/workaround on it... You can modify [img] or [imgs] codes so they allow only images loaded from your own forums URL. As smileys are placed on your local server, they should work (as well as it would work for any images placed on your own server).

Example (enCodeBB function of bb_codes.php):

/* [IMGS] tag code - with fixed width and ALT */

$pattern[]="#\[imgs\](http://".$GLOBALS['main_url']."/([^<> \n\r\[\]&]+?)\.?(gif|jpg|jpeg|png)?)\[/imgs\]#i";

/* Old [IMG] tag code - without fixed width - this one is used for smilies */

$pattern[]="#\[img\](http://".$GLOBALS['main_url']."([^<> \n\r\[\]&]+?)\.?(gif|jpg|jpeg|png)?)\[/img\]#i";
