Thread Blocker by BOP5 - Block usergroup access to specific threads
Mod Version: 1.3.0, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 40
Released: 26 Aug 2011 Last Update: 17 Dec 2012 Downloads: 140
Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

Version 1.3: Added option to block threads by forumid & bug fix
1.2 - Added option to block threads by thread prefix
1.1 - Added option to block by userid
1.0: Initial Release

I know the best way to control access to threads is via built in permissions and promotions systems however some times for special circmstances there are just certain threads you want to block from certain people- maybe from guests for example. What this mod does is make it easy to block some specific threadids from usergroups you specify. Simple and effective. The users without permission will see an error message saying they don't have access to that particular thread.

1 Plugin and 1 Global Phrase: bop5tb_noaccess - This is the error message others will see when attempting to view a thread.

Working on vBulletin 3.8.7- 4.1.5 and should work on all VB 3.6.x and up including all 4.x versions.

This looks like it's UserGroups only and prevents posting?

Block all threads in Forum?

A list of Forums to select to block all threads would be a good feature.

There is a new setting in 1.3.0 where you can put in a comma separated list of forumids and all threads in that forum will be blocked.

The only thing I see is ...Block users or usergroups from posting?

This isn't blocking threads? or I am just wondering around confused.

It works with all 4.x versions.

For the XML error please try re-downloading the mod and re-extracting the files form the zip, seems like a corrupt file.

Question

Love this hack

Is there a variation of it where the thread starter can block certain members from posting in a thread? Usually these would be trolls. Perhaps making the thread not visible to them?

Pretty noble idea but I'd like to see an option in the drop down thread moderation template when viewing threads/forums.

There are mods out there to ban users from specific threads via the front end, will not be adding any such features to this mod- it is a simple mod that works as it was intended.

OK thanks BOP, I looked before but didn't see any mod for the - thread starter - to keep trouble makers out of their thread. I did find two other mods similar to this one though, but neither of them had this thread starter functionality either. Thanks.

Excellent mod - just installed.

But is there a way to have the thread title blocked? As a guest I can see the thread title, but clicking through I cannot see the contents (as expected).

The reason why I'm asking is that periodically, I have threads that I don't want to appear in Google. It would be nice that Google can't see the title as well.
