This product allows you to designate a list of BBCodes and a list of Smilies that will be disabled for the users/usergroups you select.

The affected BBCodes/Smilies will be disabled only in the areas you select, and you can elect to have them disabled in signatures and previews (corresponding to the other areas selected) as well.
