What does it do?

When you banned a user, he can just register a new account and keep posting on your forum.
When you banned an IP, the IP could be dymanic or an proxy IP. You probably banned one or more innocent users.
Why not try to ban someone by a cookie!


Step 1: import product-cookieban.xml
Step 2: add this into .htaccess

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

be sure to replace the xxxx with your cookie prefix (check your includes/config.php)

What will happen?

When a banned user try to login your forum, he will be given a cookie of death. and then he will not be able to access your forum within an year.


to assign a different banned usergroup, modify this line:

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

to assign a different ban period, modify this number:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Can this be made to use custom ban periods. Like If i have 10 day ban to save the cookie with an 10 days life , if is permanent ban to save ca 1 year expire cookie?
Good idea as is a simple way to block most of the users (not many knows about cookies let alone delete them).

BTW, if you give a 10 day ban (this will move user to ban group for 10 days) this will place a death cookie or not?

I guess most of your users don't use Firefox and cookie manager plugins? My users live by that sort of thing. Even flash supercookies don't deter them.

What about users that are temporarily banned for 7 or 14 days etc., will they be affected by this?
