This code allows you to force one user to ignore another user's posts. This is useful in situations such as lover's spats or fueds where the involved parties are worthwhile contributors - if only they'd keep away from each other.

The plug in requires you create a custom user profile field. Name it "Forced Ignore" and set it as follows:
Type: Single Line Text Box
Field Required: No
Field Editable by User: No
Private Field: No
Field searchable on Members List: No
Show on Member List: No
Page that displays this option: Edit Profile

Once that is done note the field number created by vbulletin - you need to plug it into the php code below in the three spots you see 'fieldX' For instance, if vbulletin makes your new field number 10 you would plug in 'field10'. This php code needs to go into a plug in attached to global_start

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

Afterwards you can edit the control from the user profile control of the admincp (I haven't checked the modcp). Enter the user id number of the users you wish to force a user to ignore in there seperated by spaces. DO NOT ENTER ANYTHING BUT NUMBERS or you will create a database error for the affected user.

This will keep the user from seeing the posts of that user. Because of the way vbulletin processes Tachy the user will still be displayed in the latest thread listing of each forum. (Tachy is designed to be a global ignore, not a local one).

I don't know how to port a hack / turn it into a product, but I'd like to know how. With this knowledge I'd more than gladly port a few hacks for 3.6, but I'm not sure if there's any documentation that I could find that would give me a brief run down on what steps you would take to port a hack.

If anyone could shoot me a link so I can start the learning process, I'd be more than happy to work on this. Anybody?

I have the same problem on 3.5.4.

I also wondered what to name the plugin? I named it Forced Ignore.

I ended up using Admin Permission Override which includes forced ignore and quite a few other useful features. It was released for 3.5, but all features worked when I installed it in 3.6.3. I also cleared my postbit_ignore template so members don't get the message that they have placed this user on ignore and the option to view the post.

Is there a way to also block PMs from one user to another? That would help out when people take their fights to PMs.

hmm.. If you add a moderator to someone's ignore, they can still see the moderators posts.

fyi... the user who is being "ignored" will be able to see it when they "view their profile".

Also, couldn't this be tweaked to allow users to put another member on forced ignore? Say I did not want member A seeing or reading any of my posts - just like this hack works from the admin side, couldn't it be made so that it would be an option for the user in their usercp? That way they could force other people they didn't want reading their posst to ignore them..
