One-touch Spam Ban and Cleanup




The main purpose of this mod is to clean up after a spammer. With a minimum of fuss it will:
  • Delete all threads started by the spammer
  • Delete all posts made by the spammer
  • Delete all PMs sent to other members by the spammer
  • Delete all calendar events made by the spammer
  • Ban or delete the spammer as you like
  • Ignore permissions - posts can be deleted in areas that a moderator may not have access to.
The option to activate this tool appears in the drop-down menu in the postbit, as well as on the profile page. From here it is a "one-touch" operation, with the small exception that you must press a confirmation button before the cleanup is made.




See the screenshot for the various options, but some of the more interesting ones are:
  • You can specify individual users (in addition to groups) who can use this tool. This means certain trusted, non-moderator users could have the ability to clean up spam and ban spammers.
  • You can specify users or groups who are protected - they cannot be deleted by this tool.
  • By default, users who have registered more than 30 days ago are also protected from this tool (spammers tend to be caught and removed fairly soon after registration)
  • You can turn the various deletion targets (threads, posts, events, PMs) on or off
  • Select between hard delete or soft delete
This mod is similar to some older mods, but improved in a number of ways:
  • You also have the choice to alter the standard ban and delete reasons before you press confirm.
  • Deletes more types of spam (PMs, events)
  • Simple, quick, effective
  • Single file import (.xml) no file edits, no template edits, no .php files to upload
  • Should work on all versions of 3.6.x and future versions
Installation

Download and import the .xml file via AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product. Remember to click overwrite if upgrading

Configuration

Once installed, check in your AdminCP under "VBulletin settings" and look for the configuration group called "One-touch Spam Ban & Cleanup Options". The default options should be fine for most people.

How to use

If you have rights to use this tool (i.e. are an admin or moderator, or have configured it for the relevant user or group ID) you should see the option appear on the member profile page, or in a drop-down on the postbit (see attached screenshots for an example). The idea is that as soon as you see a spammer select the "One-touch Ban & Clean" option to remove all trace of the spammer.

Very sorry to hear about the original author, best wishes to his family.

This mod is excellent, works as intended on my boards first try. Hassle free install on 3.8.1

I even made a small edit to my user profile templates to add the 'ban and clean' link to the user profiles, rather then just on posts, since I saw some comments said they were having troubles with that. The template you are looking for is:

Member info templates > MEMBERINFO

I just added the ban and clean link after the code for Edit User Profile, search "edit_user_profile" to find the spot. Good luck!

I hope this helps other people on the same situation.

Outstanding, just saw this today! Thanks!

Grateful to the author for this fantastic mod.. RIP

I installed it with 3.8.7. It works but between steps I get this error:

Tooltip Script Error Message:

wz_tooltip.js must be included INSIDE the body section, immediately after the opening <body> tag.

I read every post in this thread, there's no mention of this problem. Any idea how I can fix it?

try downloading the vb4 version and see if you can see the line in question and compare it with this version. Also note this will not delete blogs from the user I do have an updated version for vb4 that does

The vb4 version messed up my forum, so uninstalled.

Still looking for a fix for the old version.
