How to automatically prevent messages/posts in ALL CAPS?

Post by Lanseal on February 3rd 2013, 7:41 am

I have a new, fairly obnoxious user on my forum who is making posts in all CAPS and I would like to prevent this without having to resort to heavy handed tactics. I have had the option to stop all caps before on another forum that I manage. Where can I find this option?

The other forum you mention having this ability on, is it a Forumotion forum?

No, it's a zetaboard.

There exist a solution, but this will transform all the messages in lowercase.

For example if you'll post a message like this:
Hello world!

How are you today?
this will appear:
hello world!

how are you today?

If you decided to make this, add to CSS Stylesheet:
Code:
.postbody{
text-transform: lowercase !important;
}

Thanks, but that's not worth it. Does anyone else have a solution? I thought a common problem like this would already have a common solution.

Why should you change your forum for one user. Tell him to stop doing it or you'll ban him! Simple.

Yeah, I banned him for 1 day. I doubt it will stop him, and banning him totally outright would hurt my image as an admin for something relatively minor.

I just want an automatic solution so that the problem cannot become an issue in the first place. Surely there is a code that can translate words in all caps into a word with just the first letter capitalized?

I have not see any code to do that. If there was a code, it would have issues with abbreviates like USA.

By the way, when I said that Zetaboards has a similar feature, this is what I meant:

There's no script or feature Forumotion has to this. As Slg said though, we've not seen a script like it yet, but there could be a small chance there is one out there.
