How can I make an URL active in a message? As for now I can not click on it.

Thank you

Edit setup_options.php and set parameter $allowHyperlinks. If you set

$allowHyperlinks=0;

this will enable active links posted by any member, incl. guests. Setting value greater than zero means number of postings user must have before his links will become active by default. For example

$allowHyperlinks=10;

like it is set on our board here, allows only members who has made not less than 10 postings to post active links.

Wrong is the format.

Either post

www.motionslob.dk

or

http://www.motionslob.dk

or [ url=http://www.motionslob.dk]Click here[/url ]

Sorry (I am a beginner). Now it appears correct, but the URL is not active. The lines in setup_options.php look like this:

...
$protectWholeForum=0;
$protectWholeForumPwd='pwd';
$postRange=60;
$dateFormat='j F Y H:i';
$allowHyperlinks=0;
$cookiedomain='';
$cookiename='miniBBsite';
$cookiepath='';
...

Did I place the new parameter in a wrong way and if so, where shall I place it in the setup file?

What miniBB version do you have?

This will work for the newest release only.

If you have older release, refer to this thread.

Study how to know version of miniBB.

Current version is 2.0.5a.

As I mentioned, the solution will work for the newest release only. So you will need to upgrade / re-install the newest release.

If I change this option to a very large number, hyperlinks can be posted by all members just not be clickable, right?

$allowHyperlinks=1000000000000000000000;


I would like all links posted to not be clickable and this looks like my only option.

A bit tricky implementation, but it should work (supposing you set the big number which means nobody will post such amount of messages never - I think it would be enough to set it to 1 million or so...)
