One-touch Spam Ban and Cleanup




The main purpose of this mod is to clean up after a spammer. With a minimum of fuss it will:
  • Delete all threads started by the spammer
  • Delete all posts made by the spammer
  • Delete all PMs sent to other members by the spammer
  • Delete all calendar events made by the spammer
  • Ban or delete the spammer as you like
  • Ignore permissions - posts can be deleted in areas that a moderator may not have access to.
The option to activate this tool appears in the drop-down menu in the postbit, as well as on the profile page. From here it is a "one-touch" operation, with the small exception that you must press a confirmation button before the cleanup is made.




See the screenshot for the various options, but some of the more interesting ones are:
  • You can specify individual users (in addition to groups) who can use this tool. This means certain trusted, non-moderator users could have the ability to clean up spam and ban spammers.
  • You can specify users or groups who are protected - they cannot be deleted by this tool.
  • By default, users who have registered more than 30 days ago are also protected from this tool (spammers tend to be caught and removed fairly soon after registration)
  • You can turn the various deletion targets (threads, posts, events, PMs) on or off
  • Select between hard delete or soft delete
This mod is similar to some older mods, but improved in a number of ways:
  • You also have the choice to alter the standard ban and delete reasons before you press confirm.
  • Deletes more types of spam (PMs, events)
  • Simple, quick, effective
  • Single file import (.xml) no file edits, no template edits, no .php files to upload
  • Should work on all versions of 3.6.x and future versions
Installation

Download and import the .xml file via AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product. Remember to click overwrite if upgrading

Configuration

Once installed, check in your AdminCP under "VBulletin settings" and look for the configuration group called "One-touch Spam Ban & Cleanup Options". The default options should be fine for most people.

How to use

If you have rights to use this tool (i.e. are an admin or moderator, or have configured it for the relevant user or group ID) you should see the option appear on the member profile page, or in a drop-down on the postbit (see attached screenshots for an example). The idea is that as soon as you see a spammer select the "One-touch Ban & Clean" option to remove all trace of the spammer.

I'd like to release a proper version that took care of this, but as you'll see from my last post in this thread, I'm still waiting for some help.

I installed the beta version, did not get any errors, but it just hung there (server load spiked) and never finished, the user only had one thread/post, nothing else?

There was another MOD that was interfering with it though. I think it was the "Member's RSS Feed." Other than that there was no problem.

To show in vB 3.8 member info, I added the following code to the member_profileblock_fetch_unwrapped hook:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


I prefer not to edit templates, and this seems to work on my forum.

Hope it helps.

Click "Add New Plugin" in admin, select One-touch Ban as product and member_profileblock_fetch_unwrapped as hook location, then add the code above.
