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

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This hack can only be used by Super Administrators, Administrators and Super Moderators.


What Does This Hack Do?

This is an update to my 3.8.x version of this hack, designed to work with vBulletin v4.0.x.

Do you have a spam problem and have resorted to manual user registration? If so, have you noticed that it is so tedious and wish you could spread the love by getting other people to do this for you, but not give them AdminCP access? If the answer is yes to both questions, then this hack is for you.

This is a hack gives your Super Moderators (and Administrators) 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 users with your Super Moderators, leaving you the administrator more time to do other things.

A notification in your welcome block in the navbar is displayed (if the notification option is enabled in the AdminCP) when there are new user registrations to be moderated. This is displayed to both Administrators and Super Moderators. The notification will only generate 1 extra query per page load (only if the notification is enabled, and then the extra query is only for Administrators and Super Moderators, so if you want to save a query then disable the option).

All users being moderated in the ModCP are now set to Ignore by default, so undesirable users are not accepted by accident.

Also included in this hack, if enabled and a ban usergroup is selected in the AdminCP Options, is the ability to ban users and emailing them to let them know, instead of just deleting them (this new feature has NOT been included by Jelsoft in the standard vBulletin AdminCP moderate user functionality), as it has also been requested before. So, if the ban feature is enabled, then Administrators clicking the notification link to moderate new registrations will be taken to the ModCP version (this hack) instead.

There is also an AdminCP Option to enable logging of user moderation to the Moderator's log.

What Do You Get?

With all features enabled in this hack, when there is a notification on the navbar that there are new user(s) to moderate, Super Moderators and Administrators can do the following for each individual moderated user:
  • Accept User (they are now a member)
  • Delete User (delete them from database)
  • Ban User (user is banned, username can not be reused)
  • Ignore User (leave them as a user yet to be moderated)
Or for all new moderated users, they can do the following:
  • Accept All
  • Delete All
  • Ban All
  • Ignore All

vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 4.0.0 - 4.2.0.

For the v3.8.x version of this hack, which will also work with v3.7.x - check here.

The v3.8.x version of this hack is not compatible with v3.6.x (due to fact that notifications in the welcome block were not introduced until v3.7.0), but fear not, you can use the unsupported v3.6.x version of this hack instead.



Hack Support/Feature Requests

IMPORTANT: This hack is no longer supported.



Branding

There is a small unobtrusive block of copyright branding text at the bottom of each page generated by this hack, which is there to promote my work and allow you to use this hack for free.

You are NOT allowed to remove my copyright branding from this hack.

Install/Uninstall Instructions

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 the correct vBulletin Options in the AdminCP, and then it will work from then on.

The InstallInstructions.txt instructions file is included in attached .zip file.

As much as I'm loathe to bother you with this Mosh I've come across a problem..

I've been using the hack since 4.0.0 upwards - through probably about 5 upgrades with absolutely no problems at all, until I updated to 4.1.10 last night.

The hack is still working as I can manually call it from URL, the notifications though are not.

I know notifications are working OK as I also run other hacks which make notification entries, all of which are working fine.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled both the PHP and XML, set the notifications to on in the AdminCP options for the hack, but still nothing.

Any idea?

Thanks v. much

Grim.

Found the problem - that was quick right?

Incompatability with: DragonByte Tech: Advanced Post Thanks / Like (Lite) Even with its notifications switched off - it must exclude all other hooks.

I shall be uninstalling that inferior hack :P

Thanks.

Have installed this, absolutely perfect mod.

Well except for one thing, in the first picture it shows the notification "x users awaiting moderation"

My admin are not receiving this message. I have this switched on, have tried un-install re-install, turn on/off and still no change.

Any help would be appreciated.

You did both parts of Step 3 and set the Enable Notification option in Step 4 of the install instructions? As it worked fine for me when I tested on vBulletin 4.2 installation just a few minutes ago.

It would be smashing if you could add custom field (of users choice) to the verification part.
On my forums I use a custom field for real-name, and if this was shown it would be so much easier to sort out the bots.

Is it possible to add this?

Possibly .... but am not really interested in adding it at this time, sorry I may be interested in the future, so will add it to the list.

Anyone else have this conflict? I just went to vb4 over the weekend and the thanks mod was removed. The users want it back and want a like button. Dragon Byte was the only one I found that did both. So far that is..

Thanks!


Solved: I edited my phrases, and changed the {1} variable to "$vboptions[bburl]".

Not sure why {1} is not working though. Any ideas?


Cheers.

Any way this can be fixed? My users also like the thanks mod.
