Thread Blocker by BOP5 - Block usergroup access to specific threads
Mod Version: 1.3.0, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Dec 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 40
Released: 26 Aug 2011 Last Update: 18 Dec 2012 Downloads: 140
Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

Version 1.3: Added option to block threads by forumid & bug fix
1.2 - Added option to block threads by thread prefix
1.1 - Added option to block by userid
1.0: Initial Release

I know the best way to control access to threads is via built in permissions and promotions systems however some times for special circmstances there are just certain threads you want to block from certain people- maybe from guests for example. What this mod does is make it easy to block some specific threadids from usergroups you specify. Simple and effective. The users without permission will see an error message saying they don't have access to that particular thread.

1 Plugin and 1 Global Phrase: bop5tb_noaccess - This is the error message others will see when attempting to view a thread.

Working on vBulletin 3.8.7- 4.1.5 and should work on all VB 3.6.x and up including all 4.x versions.

I'm not seeing how it would be useful in the postbit when you'd have to enter usergroups to block. Possibly on the Admin Tools on showthread (at the top of the thread) - possible but not likely to happen soon- much more difficult coding to do that.

Because it will make people angry when they get blocked from threads.

This modification was a live saver for me. I had gotten a warning by Google to not put ads on threads with pics of hot models (just regular bikini pics) etc so I moved all the threads that Google might flag into a subforum. I then used a conditional in the templates that I had ads in to keep ads from being displayed in that subforum.

Once that was done, I used threadblocker to block guests from threads that could be considered 'too hot'. I only have a couple threads like that. I know it would just be easier to put threads like that in a private subforum but I do not really allow people to post threads like that. When I encounter them, I merge them all into one thread so that it's easy to find.

By putting those threads in a private subforum, you could lose potential SEO benefits as the title of that thread could be a popular search term.

That's how this modification, REALLY comes in handy because not all the threads in that subforum is blocked.

A guest would still have access to some threads which might tempt them to join out of curiosity.

Make a new usergroup... Add that user to the group... Block usergroup from thread.

Just create a new usergroup called "Blocked From Threads" , make it based off of Registered Users so all the permissions are the same.

Then add the specific user(s) to that group as an additional group.

They will be blocked from the thread and it won't affect anything else.

I was "convinced" to add the option to block by userid to this mod. Version 1.1 now released.
