Sometimes our forum will spammed with lot of spam bots.

Deleting those threads takes time.
So while waiting those threads to be deleted, you can hide their content automatically so their content won't hurt you on SEO etc.

  • I think it is supported too on previous version (4.1.x). (confirmed working on 4.1.3)

    • Execution Order : leave at default (5)

Works great using vb4.1.3... I changed the message a little for more my own reasons using an image i made specifically for one of my sites...



Very simple:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

vBulletin has an option to delete all users threads after you banned him so why an extra addon? What can the addon do what cannot be done with vbulletin already?

Must have missed that option... tell us where it is... and also I used this so I could add an image... Banned users love to see an image LOL...

One Touch Ban & Clean-up will do this but its a mod not an option built into vBulletin...

It depends on your situation. If the users only created very little threads, the default vb's way can solve it.

But if the users created thousands of threads, and your board is very large, it takes time to prune all of them (could be more than 15 minutes). So while waiting all those threads to be deleted, you can hide them temporarily by this plugin.
