One Touch Ban & Clean-up
(Best wishes to mfyvie's family)


This is, at it's core, just a port of this mod. But I may add new features later on.

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 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.

Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #1 is not an array in [path]/includes/class_bootstrap.php(1309) : eval()'d code on line 77
This error occurs when clicking on last post link in user profile page

If you can get this mod working, I will certainly use it.

Nice mod if it worked running Ver. 4.15

Ok people, I will try an look in to your issues but I am still recreating this so that I may easily add new features. If anyone gets an error and finds a fix for it, let me know and I will add it and reupload the file.

Would love to use this plugin then... But, also getting the error:

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

I'll disable it for now, patiently awaiting an updated version.

EDIT: Was installed on vBulletin 4.1.6

Can you tell me if this will also remove all information in the users signature/profile/user's homepage space since links are usually posted here by the spammer if they get banned?

What this removes is listed in the OP. I do however plan to expand on this and have it remove everything.

thanks for your help.

My #1 problem now is spammers that register and send a Visitor Message to themselves and that's all that they do. There is no quick-ban tool that I can see to clean this up - there is no pop-up window to show the ban button.
