PM Block by BOP5 (Private Message Block Lists per User)
Mod Version: 1.0, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is online now
Developer Last Online: Apr 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (7 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 33
Released: 21 Jun 2011 Last Update: 28 Jun 2011 Downloads: 118
Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

New Version - 1.0 - No manual file edits required!

This mod allows your users to setup their own personal private message block lists. No one on their lists will be allowed to PM them. (You can optionally specify immune usergroups such as admins and mods that can't be blocked.)

You can also optionally enable 2-way blocking so if one user adds someone to their block list they can not PM that user either. (Recommended)

This mod requires you to create 1 multi-line user profile field via your Admin CP. Detailed instructions for doing so are included in the installation instructions in the .zip.

LIMITATIONS OF THIS MOD:
  • If a user changes usernames the block list will need to be updated with the new username.

Notes:
  • When adding a username to the block list capitalization of the letters do not count but all other punctuation such as spaces DO count.

This mod adds 2 phrases in Error Messages:
  • pm_blocked - This is the error shown when a user has been put on the recipients block list.
  • pm_denied - This is the error shown when 2-way blocking is enabled and a user tries to PM a recipient on their own block list.

Current Version: 1.0 - No file edits required.
0.9 - Stable Beta / Initial Release

This has been tested on 3.8.7, 4.0.8, and 4.1.2 and is expected to work on all 3.7/8, 4.0/1 versions.

Looks like a great mod. One request please. Will it be possible to have only certain usergroups use this?

I could probably fairly easily edit the code so that it would only work for some usergroups, but being it is a user profile field it will always show for all users, so I don't know if you'd want that.

So I guess it will not be possible to only have those usergroups see the profile field?

No, not without some more custom coding on profile page unfortunately which isn't on my agenda.

This thread isn't even 10 posts long and that question was already asked and answered.

Updated to 1.0- I moved the exact code into a hook and only had to add 1 line.

No file edits required. Not sure why I couldn't see the solution when I first released it. Must have been a long day.

Please remove the file edit if you are upgrading from version 0.9.

New installations will require no edits at all.

My apologies, I missed that.

Would you be able to make the change or a version that allows only certain usergroups the ability to use it?

I'm assuming you mean you'd want some usergroups to not be able to block anyone? That would be possible but as I said earlier they would still see the profile field so it would be confusing. You would have to explain that some people without permission to use the mod and their "block lists" would be ignored.
