Looks like a very cool mod. I like the concept a lot, even though I don't think I would have to use it much on my board, but it's always nice to have another tool in the box when you need one.

As I'll be doing some much-delayed upgrading this weekend, I'll try to give it a shot on the latest and report back. That's on the list with about 478 other things to do, but I'll try.

Any word on the Moderator Permissions for this? Has anyone that has installed this hack, figure out a way to allow for Moderators?

Save, and reinstall.
Thank you, that fixed the problem.

Looks like a mod that would be put to good use on one of my forums if it were updated to the latest version of vbulletin.

Is it possible to ban Guests?

By IP maybe from a thread?

You can ban guests by finding there IP in the users online now section at the bottom of your forum. There's a mod that I've seen as well that allows you to ban certain users from a specific thread. However, if you just want to ban all guests from viewing a forum/thread, change the forum permissions for that forum.

vB 4.1.5

Cannot view 'Clear this thread bans', 'Clear all thread bans' & 'View All Thread Bans' links in the Administrative tools.

Any fix for this?

I tested it in 4.2 and the menu option in the screenshot below doesn't appear.

However, I tried banning a user from a thread and received a confirmation message. I didn't actually test if the user could post in the thread though after being banned.

Looks like the mod will need to be updated regardless.

Using in 4.2 and it works - with some of the errors already posted.
Donated some funds to the dev. Would really like to see some upgrades and additions to this mod.
