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

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


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.

*** Actually, I see your code. I simply cut-and-paste the user # from the memberlist into the new URL. Once you get a rhythm down you can get maybe 6 done per minute, that's not too bad.

Would be nice to add it into the Admin CP for users. Many register for sleeper accounts and are a pain to still ban. I have auto moderation on so their post never makes it to the forum however it's a pain to ban them still. Could you something into either the User Profile or to the admin cp?

I just uploaded a new version of the file. The only change was the addition to the description of the product. I added the original creators name (Mark Fyvie) after his brother requested it.

Thumbs up

I had a couple of suggestions:

1. Add 'check version' and direct link support to the the plugin as it appears in the "plugins & products -> Manage Products" portion of the administration control panel.

2. Add a feature to forward the information to using their API key, etc. (perhaps you could piggyback with this addon?

Can you make this work for Visitor Messages? Most of the time, lots of spam goes on with Visitor messages. Thanks Otherwise great mod, still installing and nominating!

EDIT: Whoa. When I installed this, it broke my forums. It was loading as a white page. When I disabled, it went back to normal. Uh. I am using 3.8.7
