Ok, maybe I've overlooked it (though I've read Admin Doc cover to cover), but HOW do you ban someone without having to open up half a dozen screens to accomplish it?!?!?!
For god's sake, IPB 1.3.1 had that feature, and it's as old as dirt!
It was a button in the ACP, that lets you ban by IP, Name, or email.
IPS, you have a wonderful product, but HOW could you have left off this feature? *sigh*
A "Ban Button" is needed badly.
OR, if some can point out a mod for 2.3.4 that does the SAME thing, that'd be fine too.
You can ban by IP, name or email under Management -> Manage Ban Filters :unsure:
But it would be so much easier and quicker if all we had to do was click on the name which brings out the drop down box, and have a clickable Ban setting. Click it, add length of ban, add IP and/or email address to ban filters, and add to banned user group.
Banning, for me, is permanent. Hence there is no need to have a time period associated with it. I suspend an account if I want to disable an account for a time period.
mods can restrict postings by using the warn system, so even though its not a ban as such they cant post anything
Banning permanatley is bad. My ip changes every day and gets handed off to someone else.
but we need a quick button for guests and members. I leave my board open to guest posting so I constantly have to delete porn and viagra threads.
There is a modification that allows you to do this. I'll see if I can find out the name.
I personally don't whant it, because you can banip someone only from the ACP, its a security measure I think
i don't want because maybe on my board I have 2-3 admins, but they don't have permission to ACP and therefore banip...
If you warn someone there is an option to suspend them. Suspend them for -1 days and they will be banned permanently.
I think it is better to have a tool for admins ban some one and delete there posts in the board pages and not in the ACP pages. Because login the ACP and search a member is so hard. If there are so many members post ADs ,it will be hard to ban them and delete there posts in the ACP.
I agree, what I'd really like to see is a BAN button attached either directly to a post or on the user-drop down while viewing a post. This would make it much faster to ban someone when they are on a posting rampage, which sometimes happens with spammers. Going through the warning dialog is a bit cumbersome, and of course going all the way into the ACP is even more time consuming. I'd also love to see a "Ban and Remove All Posts" attached to the user-drop down (with a confirmation, of course). The impact of a rogue troll or spammer could quickly be neutralized in such fashion.
I agree, banning inline would be convenient. We just had a recent string of spammers and that would've been helpful.
Can we post support questions here? and the staff can reply??
If IPS does not add this to the 3.0, I will be releasing to the public my Ban Member System when it is updated to fit the 3.0Ban Member System 3.0.0
- Quickly And Easily Ban People From Your SiteFeatures
1. - Ban from Topic View
2. - Ban from Profile View
3. - Main Ban Menu
4. - Main Ban Page
5. - Member's With ACP Access Are Protected.
6. - Individual Ban Log
7. - Global Ban Log
8. - Group Permissions
This looks very good..
Is it already released for 2.x ?
Is there any chance you can have "Put User in Group" and then the user goes to the "Banned" group
@ awaisuk - currently it is a paid mod that is for v2.3.x
@ The Football Palace - It does that automatically
Thats nice, except its a paid mod and your kinda advertising haha.
I think the feature where you can have the checks to ban IP, e-mail, username, are good too easily updates all in one. And by default we should have exporter / import features on the ban filters for words + ban, you have to make mod edits for them to work.
Something like the paid mod above is definitely needed :)
Very nice, Calypso. Looks to be a great addition.
If you all want to use it now I can go ahead and release it, just keep in mind that there probably will be an update for it when IPB 3.0 comes out. I will go ahead and add it to the resources, of course someone will have to approve it before it can be downloaded here.
I'd love to give it a try, Calypso.
I have a test install doing nothing but sitting there. And I'd be happy to report back to you with results/bugs/problems, if you wish.
released at my site and here, it shouldn't have any errors but just in case, let me know.
Wow thank you :D
