Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored. You can now check out the 3.8.x version of this hack, which is supported for v3.7.x. as well as v3.8.x.

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with both vBulletin v3.6.x and v3.7.x. But it is highly recommended that you use the new hack with v3.7.x.


What Does This Hack Do?

This is hack gives your Super Moderators the option in the ModCP to now manually approve new user registrations, that before now only Administrators could do from the AdminCP.

This means you can now spread the load of manually approving members with your Super Moderators, leaving you the administrator more time to do other things.

This hack was created because I liked the idea of the request in this thread, and seems to have been requested quite a few times over the years.

There are no file or template changes at all and is fully phrased. You just need to upload 1 file, import 1 product and alter 2 vBulletin Options in the AdminCP.


Installation Instructions
  1. Unzip product-jd_20070831.zip
  2. Upload /upload/modcp/user_moderation.php to your <forum root>/modcp folder (overwrite existing uploaded file if upgrading).
  3. Import product-jd_20070831.xml into vB using the AdminCP Product Manager (set Allow Overwrite to Yes if upgrading).
  4. Under the User Registration Options section of vBulletin Options in the AdminCP:
    • Ensure Moderate New Members is set to Yes
    • Ensure Verify Email address in Registration is set to Yes

Hi jdsinclair,

Thank you very much for this mod. It has shown me an example of moving admin functions towards the moderators. My biggest headache after moving to vBulletin from phpbb (+category hierarchy mod) is that it has put the complete load of usergroup management on me (the admin) . I liked the way group moderators worked in the older setup where group moderators could add or remove users to from usergroups. Could you please also consider this as a mod request, i.e. a mod for giving some moderator permissions to add or remove users to from usergroups?

Question: can my other admin currently (without this hack) approve people? because it seems like im the only one who approves people, not sure if they have that power or not.

As long as they have the Can Administer Users permission in the Administrator Permissions Manager, then yes they can.

They will see Users to Moderate in the Welcome to the vBulletin Admin Control Panel on the Control Panel Homepage.

Did you at least make a try with a moderator account?!!

I do make some change to this MOD to avoid this!

I have been able to duplicate this. I never checked as moderators do not have a link to the ModCP as standard, so should never access it, as they do not know that it is there, but can access it if they know the url.

Version 1.0.1 will fix this issue.

This is not a real fix,
this conditional : is_member_of($vbulletin->userinfo,5,6) is just hide the link from moderators,
but they can still access to the page: http://www.site.com/modcp/user_moderation.php
myabe you should check permissions on user_moderation.php file.

Fixed now, Use v1.1.0.

Followed your instructions, but can't seem to find Moderate New Users in VB Options in the AdmnCP. Did I do something wrong, or am I looking in the wrong place?

Edited later: Oops, I just found it in the User Registration Options, and I already had it turned on. So no problem after all.

thank you soo much jdsinclair! I had nearly given up hope anybody was even listening to this issue...

I'll give this a spin immediately and get back to you with any pertinent results although I am guessing it's going to work just great...

passing it onto Supermoderators instead of moderators was a smart call btw and no skin off of anyone's nose who really wants to implement this protocol on a regular basis...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

followup: piece of cake...works perfectly. marked as installed, rated excellent and voted MOTM. Thanks again for taking the time to attend to this. It may not be the glitziest mod of all time but it's going to make a big difference to some of us...moreso as time goes on I think...

I've had a consistent glitch with this. Often I'll see a couple registrations come through and I'll go to this area of the mod panel and it will say "no matches found". When I go to the usergroup manager and select "Users Awaiting Email Confirmation" it shows me the users Ids that have registered. What's the issue?
