I modified it a little to send banned users to a different part of my site that still provides benefit to our site. BeFit4Free - Health and Fitness Forums

I changed the refresh to 5 seconds and made it where the banned users are forwarded to our link exchange directory. (Banned page)

The reason that members are typically banned from BeFit4Free.net is because they are submitting pharmacy links, erectile dysfunction stuff or nutritional supplements that we do not sell.

This way I still have a chance of getting a good link exchange from a related site, since we sell nutritional supplements.

May surprise you that I didn't write the mod although I did endorse it and link to it after I found out about it.

I did, however, get banned from your site... maybe your dream was some subconscious guilt?

Lightbulb Javascript redirect

So I tried this redirect banned users refresh technique to send banned users to a "503 Server Unavailable" error page. We want the banned user to think the server is down and go away.

Here is the problem:

The full vBulletin page must load in your browser before the meta refresh redirect can happen, even if it is set to 0. (It doesn't matter if you move the meta refresh to the headinclude or header template.) Depending on the browser, connection, etc. a user can easily see the standard vBulletin "Banned" error message for a second just before they are redirected to the other page. They may also be able to pull the original error page up using the BACK button.

That's a big problem if you are trying to deter SEO and backlinks spammers, who are registering and posting by hand and will be registering multiple accounts anyway.

So I am trying a Javascript version of this same banned users redirect:


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


This uses Javascript to instantly change the url location via the location.replace function, but also includes the old meta refresh redirect in case the user has javascript disabled.

Since I'm not a Javascript expert, can someone else test this to see if the redirect is faster or tell me if there is a better Javascript call to do this url replacement with?
