This mod prevents the posting of topics or personal messages containing black listed urls. It uses the Wikipedia black list and a user created custom black list.

What happens if you press the TAB key while posting? The Post-button will be selected. But what if you just wanted to insert a TAB because you're posting some kind of code ? This mod allows to press the TAB key and insert a real TAB. Its tested and works with the most common browser. It also affects to all installed themes!

applied problem, may not work with this version of SMF
Allows guests to see closed thread/Boards.
One problem with SMF's permission based control of guest access is that it's an all or nothing proposition. Some forum operators would like allow guests to read the board index but not be able to read the topics themselves. In theory this increases membership by encouraging guests to register so that they can read what they've been missing.

This modification adds a different means of controlling the ability of guests to read topics. First configure SMF to allow guest access into all boards that you want them to see and may want them to be able to read. Then use Look But No Read's configuration in Admin settings to select specific categories and boards where you want to prevent their reading topics. They will still be able to see the board index including all the topic titles, but they will be taken to the "Please login or register" page if they attempt to read any topics.

applied tried to install 3x, doesn't seem to work, uninstalled.
Prevents the scroll bar in Avatars that are too large.
I've always been annoyed at the ugly scroll bars shown when members choose overly large remote avatars. This modification gets rid of the scroll bars, and any excess of image just gets cropped off. It puts an end to hassling members to please pick a smaller avatar, and you don't have to put up with looking at the ugly scrollers anymore.

ImageZoomTag_1_3.zip Doesn't work with 1.11 SMF forum version
Adds one new tag, which allows images to be zoomed in and out. Requires Javascript to be enabled, on image hover a box will pop up below with different levels of zoom that can be picked from.

PrevNextEnhance.zip I don't think we use this even on the standard SMF so I don't think we'll apply this mod.
This will small modification that will enhance the look of the <<previous and next>> area on the topic index. A link is also added to go to that specific forum.
