    hyperlinks are allowed for those that are 'full memebers'. (read: 90 days, and 100 posts)

    It's mainly to stop spammers who sign up then only post links to their sites. The button probably just isn't disabled though.

    All people have to do is make 5 posts. Seems like such a waste to put that extra coding in just to satisfy people who have less then 5 posts.

    No, I mean take out the URL button. Coding it to take the button out for people with less then 5 posts. Heck, I write out my urls in this forum whenever I'm posting a link. I don't go to advanced.

    you could write code to take out the hyperlink button for those without privileges to post links, but the OP is probably the first person ever to complain about this in the history of all forums everywhere. Almost all forums I know of implement a no hyperlink rule for new members.

    It might be handy if it was disabled but had its title attribute set to state an extract from the link posting rule. That might stop a small percentage of the "omfg yoz forum sux, i cant post linx", a small small percentage.
