This product will allow you to ban someone from a thread so they cannot reply to it or, depending on the configuration, they cannot even view its contents.

On my site we have some people who like to stir things up when they see threads about a certain subject. Their replies aren't worthy of an outright ban but they can be very annoying and disrupt the flow of the thread. Rather than leaving up to the moderators to keep deleting the posts and warning the poster, this product puts a stop to the problem by allowing moderators to lock people out of a thread as needed.

As of version 4.1.3.1 it is now possible to specify user groups that can use this product even if they don't have moderator rights over the forum the thread is in. It is also possible to quickly unban people who have already posted to the thread. And there is a new option to allow bans to be set at the forum level.

Configuration

There are various configuration settings that allow you to customise how this product works...



Thread Creation Bans Enabling this allows the thread creator to specify a list of banned users as the thread is being created. This is the only time a non-moderator is able to ban someone from a thread and the following option will appear if enabled...



Show Banned Users Enabling this will display a banner at the top of the thread listing all of the users who are banned from that thread, for example...



Show Banned Users (Mods Only) Enabling this will display the same banner as above but only if the person viewing the thread is a moderator of the forum the thread is in.

Prevent Viewing Enabling this will attempt to stop the person who is banned from a thread from being able to view the contents of that thread. If they attempt to open the thread, or view the preview text, they will get...




Logout Protection This works in conjunction with the "Prevent Viewing" option, and enabling this will prevent users not logged into your forums from being able to view the thread if anyone is banned from it. This is to stop someone who is banned from a thread simply logging out of your forums to bypass the ban by viewing the thread as a guest.

Allow Forums Bans This allows users to be banned from a forum. Once ban they cannot reply to (or view if "Prevent Viewing" is enabled) any thread in that forum. They will also be prevented from creating new threads in that forum. This setting wont propagate down to sub-forums. There is no forum banner showing who is banned at forum level, however all forum level bans will appear in the thread banner (if enabled) when viewing a thread in that forum.

User Groups Optional comma separated list of user group IDs who will have access to this products functionality even if they don't have moderator permissions over the thread. This option will also restrict which users can use the "Thread Creation Bans" feature.


Example

If a moderator wants to ban someone from a thread then they have two options...



The option under the "Moderators Tools" menu will ban the users of any selected posts. This allows quick banning of people who have already replied to the thread.

The option under the "Administrative" menu will bring up the following screen which will allow the moderator to enter the names of users they want banned, allowing pre-emptive banning of people you know are going to cause trouble in a thread! This screen is also the only way people can be unbanned from a thread.

Both of those are good ideas and I will try and get them into the next release. I have no idea when that will be though due to work commitments at the moment.

The option to set individual users to be able to view a thread or not would be grand.

Hi, is it possible for this mod to give other usergroups the ability to ban from the thread? For example moderators or a paid usergroup?

Edit: I see the product does this, wonderful!

WOW ! nice work!

It is possible that a topic starter can ban other members to stop reply'ing in his thread?

Can u do this option?

Ok using this and it is working. Problem is, error message for removing someone from a thread is giving "you can't participate in this forum" instead of "you can't participate in this thread".

Also, anyway to make it so that so many template edits are not necessary?

Is there any way to make it so that a thread creator who is a non-moderator can ban someone from a thread after it is created?

Well, regardless I have it installed on my 4.1.x version and it is working wonderfully... I'd like to upgrade but I'll wait until I'm sure all my mods will work first.

re

why not creating a testing board with 4.2 and installing the mods you are using?

A good feature would be, if its possible to ban a member on every time - not only at the thread starting (Who knows, who is flaming my thread, when i`m starting...)
