Profile and Signature Spam Control for RavenNuke
Profile and Signature Spam Control for RavenNuke
Additional layer of protection against Profile and Signature Spam

A quick and simple modification for RavenNuke™ v2.5; which adds an additional layer of protection against unwanted Profile and Signature Spam links. New users can still enter their website URL and Signatures, but they will not display to visitors (or search engines) until the user has 5 or more forum posts. Since most spammers won't take the time to write 5 relevant posts, it works as a preventative measure; requiring too much work for the profile spammer to make it worth their time. This also allows site owners to still give "link juice" to respected members while casting the unwanted spammers aside.

Working with Alternate Stylesheets
Working with Alternate Stylesheets
Persistent, Preferred, Alternate, and Media Targeted CSS

Update: June 2012 -  This document was intended to be a supporting document for a yet unfinished "style switching" theme which has been delayed until 2013; after the release of RavenNuke 3.0. Our apologies, but this document will remain incomplete until then...


In preparation for the upcoming release of our style switching theme Chameleon, we would like to give a quick overview of how alternate stylesheets work; so that others can modify, customize, and build upon the Chameleon framework. CSS stylesheets can relate to your document in several different ways; but for now let's concern ourselves with persistent and alternate stylesheets.

Persistent stylesheets are your normal, everyday stylesheets that are always enabled. They are defined by setting the rel attribute to “StyleSheet” and have NO title attribute.
