Ban Users From A Thread
(Keep users out of a particular thread)


Allows Administrators to ban a user from a particular thread.
Most useful if you have a "flame started" and you don't want to lock the entire thread or ban the user entirely - just keep them out of the thread!

1. Allows banning users from a particular thread.
2. This mod can be used by Administrators.
3. Cannot ban Moderators/Super Moderators/Administrators.
4. Gives you the ability to clear all bans in a particular thread, or bans from All threads (forum wide).
5. Can ban/unban user from a single menu when clicking their username (https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/ button).
6. Page to display Forum Wide Thread Bans.


1. Download the .zip file
2. Read the guide in the README.txt document

tagged and thanks;

at the moment, I use Usergroup permissions to ban members from posting in all threads

That would be like banning them from the entire forum, wouldn't it? :)

It's way more useful if you could just ban the problematic users only from the particular thread that they're "fighting" in. Well, now you can! :) This way, you could punish members by restricting them access to the thread and still save the thread for the other users to discuss.

Let me know how you and your admins like it when you install it :)

Never had this problem on 4.1.2. Working on it...
Anyone else experiencing problems?

From a development standpoint, wouldn't it make more sense to have this mod use the thread table instead of the datastore? That would eliminate the one query that's currently being added to each showthread pageload. After all, you only really ever care about the thread that you're currently viewing. If you wanted to get a global snapshot of all threads with bans a select where thread.btu != NULL query could be used.

I'll likely end up installing this if such a modification is made. Or, if I have some extra time, I'd be more than willing to try making it given your permission (this would be for the 3.x version of the plugin).

Using 4.1.1, banned someone:

You have been removed from this discussion thread. Please contact an administrator if you are unaware of the reason.
Works great, thanks!
