Overview:

This product is in response to the request posted by The Mailman here:

Disable [img] bb code for specific user or usergroup?

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. You may also restrict users individually, with their own separate lists of restrictions. 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. You can disable only the display of restricted content, or you can choose to prevent restricted content from being saved to the database altogether.

Updates:

Version 1.1:
  • Fixed HTML encoding issue.

Version 1.2:
  • Added option to disable smilies.
  • Added option to select usergroup membership type (primary only/secondary only/primary and secondary).
  • Added option for individual custom restrictions by username.
  • Replacement message can be set for BBcodes only, smilies only, both BBCodes and smilies, or turned off.
  • Quoted posts/PMs of restricted users now has BBCodes/smilies disabled.

Version 1.2.5:
  • Fixed bug with non-Latin characters.

Version 1.2.6:
  • Fixed reported issue with PMs.

Version 1.3:
  • Added the option to prevent restricted content from being saved to the database, and old restricted content to be removed.
  • Moved the code that parses content to an external script to avoid redundancy.

Version 1.3.1:
  • Fixed reported issue with Signatures.

Version 1.4:
  • Fixed multi-quote issue.

Compatibility:

Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and may work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.

Any way to disable smileys too?

Excellent. This is something I was waiting. Something similar Abe1 had made, but it had it's own problems why I didn't used it (mainly the way all new BBcodes were disabled by default for all usergroups, what was PITA to set up and maintain, especially if you have a lot of usergroups, and especially that disabled using BBcodes for users who are in multiple usergroups and one can use BBcode, and one (or more) can't).

Does this mod has the last problem, for users in multiple usergroups? For example, does it allows use of BBcode for someone who has more than one usergroup and one allows, and one disallows using BBcode? If not, please enable best case scenario for that usergroup, so user can use BBcode if at least one usergroup allows use of BBcode.

There's also one use I was planning to use such mod: Having special BBcodes for staff members, that regular users can use, but of course, can see their effect.

Also, is it possible if user who can't use BBcode, when quoting post with disabled BBcode don't see that BBcode at all (BBcode and content within it)? Just to see empty space (last option suggests something like that, but not sure at the moment if it works that way).

Also, is it possible to have separate mod, but with inverted function, that we enter BBcode list and usergroups and/or users who can use them, and that this two mods can work together? Or, having one mod that could have different rules for different BBcodes, e.g.:

img|+6,7 - This means BBcode img can use only usergroups 6 and 7
b|-3,2 - This means that BBcode b (bold) can't use usergroups 3 and 2

Or something similar?

Anyway, great mod.

I had idea about making some posts "official", i.e. only staff members could make them. And that posts would look differently from normal posts (different background image, color, font..., basically different CSS). So users would know it is not "normal" post from staff members, but "official". Now I could make something similar, using BBcode that moderators can use, but regular users, which could have similar effect.

Which also leads me to idea, if I use image for that BBcode, can that image be disabled for users who couldn't use that BBcode? So moderators can use it in easier manner?

This product uses the "is_member_of()" function when it comes to usergroups...and so no matter how many usergroups to which a user belongs, if he/she is a member of any usergroup which you select, then the BBCodes you set will be disabled for them. I don't see this as a "problem," because that's the way I intended this product to work. I can add the option to only have primary usergroups used though..

I will also look into allowing the specification of BBCodes that are by default disabled except for users/usergroups you set. :)

Yes, I suspected something like this.

As I mentioned, I had that problem with Abe1's mod. But, if there would be mod that allows using BBcodes to only certain usergroups, then it would work as vBulletin permission system. Now it works as vBulletin permissions for banned usergroups.

I use multiple usergroups for many users and this system, for my intentions with it, would collide and break my system.

I have been working on this product, and so far I have included a setting for disabled smilies, and for the selection of usergroup type (primary only/secondary only/primary and secondary) and for replacement (None/BBcode Only/Smilie Only/BBcode And Smilie).

It was a massive rewrite. :eek:

I am going to figure a way to include BBCodes/Smilies that are restricted on an individual basis.

I have just come to realize that I need to account for other users who may quote the posts of restricted users.

So, it may be a while before an update is ready. :)
