This is very useful, could this be edited to allow certain other usergroups to use it?

For example, vendors could ban certain competing vendors from posting in their threads taking them off track?

code error on top of the page

Hi, I have correctly installed this mod, and it runs fine, but when I go to "View All Thread Bans" on top of the page appear the following code:

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

What is it??
The page shows correctly users who have been banned, but I don't know what mean this code error...

Thank you, mark as installed and 5*

Nothing serious, the mod (banning) still works. I'll post an update that fixes this error soon.

Great mod!

I would also like to request the ability for moderators to do this, as well as admins. Our mods are regularly telling people not to post in a thread again, and this hack will be very handy.

It would also be great to add a reason, which could then appear on the user message: "You have been removed from this thread because xxx". It would also appear when admins view the thread bans list.

Make sure you have the ban icon () in /images/site_icons/ignore.png. If not, save it and add it there.

The modification uses this (default and already existing) icon from vBulletin 4 on purpose, so it would spare you the trouble of uploading a custom icon via FTP manually. But, in case for any reason you don't have the icon in your /images/site_icons folder - you should upload it manually

At the moment, that option is not available, but it's in my to-do list.
However, there is a simple work-around that will allow your moderators to ban users from threads - but it's kinda tricky. It will give your moderators permissions to ban users from threads even on forums that they don't moderate.

However, I must advise you to be patient. Both features you mentioned are in my to-do list.

To-Do:

- Allow Mods/Supermods to use thread bans [optional];
- Time ban [hours, days, weeks...];
- Display ban reason when user tries to enter thread;
- Notification for banned users via PM.

It's way more useful if you could just ban the problematic users only from the particular thread that they're "fighting" in. Well, now you can! This way, you could punish members by restricting them access to the thread and still save the thread for the other users to discuss.

Let me know how you and your admins like it when you install it
going to install vB 4.1.2 during the weekend and install this mod and will post more

I still have this issue and uploading that .png file did not resolve it. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Yep. I had the same thing and used Firebug to compare the code for this icon/link in the user info to others there, e.g. 'View Forum Posts'. I noticed that in the others, the image paths were missing the leading '/'

I edited the xml file for this mod to remove it, reinstalled the mod, and it's sorted.

So, open the xml file in a text editor, go to line 62 and change it from ...

<img src="/images/site_icons/ignore.png" alt="{vb:rawphrase btu_unban}">

to

<img src="images/site_icons/ignore.png" alt="{vb:rawphrase btu_unban}">

Save, and reinstall.
